Also, for those of you who don't know, the queen has her own birthday website. Here is the link: http://www.royal.gov.uk/output/page4817.asp

Does anyone know at what time Charles' tribute to his mother will be screened on Sky News or the BBC?

Thanks in advance.

The Queen's stamps even rate a mention in the Daily Telegraph in Australia.

http://dailytelegraph.news.com.au/st...001028,00.html

Does anyone know if there is going to be a special stamp in Australia itself to commemorate this event?

A handout photograph obtained 18 April 2006 shows a portrait of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II by artist Jemma Phipps. The painting was unveiled to mark the Monarch's 80th birthday, and captures her in one of her Ascot outfits, complete with matching hat. The Queen will celebrate her 80th birthday on Friday 21st April.

All the stamps, pictures and portraits are really lovely. Nice choices.
What event would other royals be attending? The service at St. Paul's Cathedral? Or will they all be at Windsor?

This is a cute story... I love it.

"TODAY a hundred 80-year-olds from across Britain will gather at Buckingham Palace for an 80th birthday lunch with the Queen.

Those who qualified for their gilt-embossed invitations have at least one thing in common with each other and their hostess - all were born on 21 April 1926 - on the same day as Queen Elizabeth II."

That's so cute. What a great idea.

Here is the link..

In honour of the Queen's birthday, her former brother-in-law Lord Snowdon has taken a new official picture, courtesy of the British Royal Family's official website.

Combo picture of various portraits of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II wearing hat on different occasions and dates, made 25 February 2006, at the occasion of the Queen's 80th birthday, 21 April 2006. Royal protocol decrees that Her Majesty always wears a hat in public, while her face must be visible at all times.

I would like to wish Her Majesty a most Happy Birthday, surrounded by Her loving family.
I also wish She would give as a chance to celebrate Her birthday for many years ahead.

God, Save the Queen!
