Queen Turning 80, and So Are Her Guests
LONDON - Queen Elizabeth II has invited 99 guests to BuckinghamPalace Wednesday, and she won't need to ask anyone's age. All share the queen's birth date — April 21, 1926. The queen has laid on a three-course meal for 70 women and 29 men who, like her, will celebrate their 80th birthday on Friday.

Queen Elizabeth II will reign until she dies: cousin
LONDON (AFP) - Queen Elizabeth II, who turns 80 this week, will reign until she dies, her cousin said in an interview, denying any speculation that she might retire or abdicate the throne.
"It's not like a normal job, it's a job for life," Margaret Rhodes told the BBC before the monarch's birthday on Friday, adding that the vows made on Coronation Day in 1953 were "so deep and so special" to her.
When asked if she was categorically saying the queen would neither retire nor abdicate, but would reign until her last breath, Rhodes replied: "Yes, I'm perfectly sure that's what will happen."

Queen's birthday portrait unveiled
LONDON, England -- A new portrait of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II has been unveiled to mark her 80th birthday, showing her dressed all in pink and ready for the races.
The painting by Jemma Phipps captures the monarch in one of her Ascot outfits, complete with matching hat.
It was commissioned by the Duke of Devonshire to celebrate both the revamp of the famous racecourse and the queen's milestone birthday.

Birthday portrait for Queen at 80

Day at the races. Pic: By kind permission of Ascot Racecourses Ltd
A 28-year-old artist has unveiled a new portrait of the Queen dressed for a day at the races, as part of the monarch's 80th birthday celebrations.
It was commissioned by the Duke of Devonshire to mark both the birthday, on 21 April, and a revamp of Ascot.
Artist Jemma Phipps chose the baby pink outfit for the monarch to wear.
"It was quite hard to concentrate as I was trying to get my head around the fact that I was chatting to the Queen and she was making me laugh," she said

Blair praises 'remarkable' Queen

The Queen will be 80 on Friday
Prime Minister Tony Blair has paid a glowing 80th birthday tribute to the Queen by describing her as "one of the most respected people of our times".
Her sense of duty and service "had a profound impact on our country, the Commonwealth and the world", he said.
He praised her as a "remarkable source of constancy and strength", saying she had met the changes in the world "with extraordinary grace and dedication".
"She has been a reassuring and unifying presence for her people," he said.

Clear skies ahead for Queen at 80
By Peter Hunt BBC royal correspondent
She has a public persona that we are all familiar with and a jealously guarded private personality.
Those who are admitted into what has been called by one author "the golden circle" rarely shed much light on the Queen they meet at ease.


http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4921120.stm

Queen 'will do her job for life'
The Queen's cousin has told the BBC she is "perfectly sure" the monarch will never retire or abdicate the throne.
The Hon Margaret Rhodes was speaking as the Queen prepared to begin her birthday celebrations with a lunch for 99 people who also turn 80 on 21 April.
She said: "It's not like a normal job, it's a job for life." The vows made on Coronation Day were "so deep and so special" to the Queen, she added.
"She wouldn't consider not continuing to fulfil those vows until she dies."





http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20060419...n_060419153335

Queen Elizabeth crowned with tributes as 80th birthday nears
LONDON (AFP) - Queen Elizabeth II basked in tributes at the launch of celebrations for her 80th birthday, with Prime Minister Tony Blair and others calling her a mainstay of Britain and the Commonwealth.
The queen, who turns 80 on Friday, expressed "thanks for our health and happiness" in a toast to 99 "birthday twins" she invited to Buckingham Palace for a lunch on Wednesday to mark their common birth date of April 21, 1926.
The event, at the official London residence of Europe's longest-serving monarch, was like a fairytale to some.

Thank you, Warren :).

I've made another with some photos from 20minutos.es :) .




It is so nice to go through Your Majesty Photos. She is a person that touches us in some way. She stands! I don't know how to explain:o ...

Anyway, it is so nice to see people celebrating her life in a such colourful and enthusiastic way.

the best one so far...

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II sits in the Regency Room at Buckingham Palace in London 19 April 2006 as she looks at some of the cards which have been sent to her for her 80th birthday. Buckingham Palace said that so far she has received 20,000 cards and 17,000 emails. The Queen celebrates her actual 80th birthday Friday 21 April with a walkabout in Windsor town followed by a dinner hosted in her honour by her son Prince Charles at Kew Palace in London.

TV image showing Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, pays a homage to his "darling Mama" Queen Elizabeth II who celebrated her 80th birthday 21 April 2006. Speaking in a deep and resonant voice on national radio and television, the queen's eldest son thanked her for the "many wonderful qualities which she has brought to almost an entire lifetime of service and dedication".
