Prince Philip's 90th Birthday, 10 June 2011

Anyone know the plans for celebrating this yet? Any foreign royals attending?

It's supposed to be a quiet family affair, so we'll probably see the Greek Royals.

I suspect they may have a service of thanksgiving, either at St George's or the Abbey. They will probably have some sort of a gun salute, and then a private celebration. The British RF have never been keen to have large gatherings of foreign royals in a very public setting and they are unlikely to change that.

But for Charles's 60th there was lots of foreign Royals. And I think I read something about a Service of Thanksgiving.

Queen urges Philip: Don't be a 90th party pooper | Mail Online

Charles is different to his father, a service of thanksgiving is expected.

I am on HM's side: a 90th birthday is special, and should be celebrated as such.

It should be spent how Prince Phillip wants to spend it.

Prince Philip's 90th birthday

Duke of Edinburgh relents over bash for his 90th | Mail Online

A thanksgiving service at St George's and then a celebratory luncheon.

He turned down St Paul's - typical of the man.

It is on June 12th - the weekend after Trooping the Colour and the Sunday immediately before the start of Ascot week.

Prince Philip set for 90th birthday interviews

Prince Philip will give not one, but two interviews to the BBC and ITV to celebrate his 90th birthday in June. The TV appearances will be in addition to the planned thanksgiving service at Windsor. ‘The Duke didn’t want a big fuss made, but the Queen was determined to mark this milestone,’ says a courtier. ‘He will speak to the BBC and ITV about his life and work.’

Great article. It is good to see Philip's contributions being recognised. For over 60 years, he has tirelessly served crown and country, despite the odd gaffe!

Feel free to move into the 90th Bday thread

In an unusually candid interview to mark his 90th birthday, the Duke of Edinburgh admitted it had been hard to turn his back on a life at sea.

You know, this is the first time I have ever heard any of the DOE's children describe him as " caring".
