The thread about the Queen's 90th birthday should either be opened / modified or maybe a new thread should be opened? There is new information today.

Quote:

But in April and May of 2016 there will be plenty of festivities to mark yet another significant moment in an already historic reign. And, fittingly, this special celebration will be centred around The Queen’s lifelong passion for horses – everyone should get to spend their birthday just how they want to, after all.

The Queen doesn't snubs anything. The palace has decided that itv should broadcast it.

There was also a mistaken description of the Queen as 'HRH' – rather than 'Her Majesty'.
This is something the BBC and the Daily Fail have in common.

The Royal Household is expected to make further announcements later this year about other events marking the Queen's 90th birthday on April 21 2016. On September 9 this year, she will become Britain¹s longest reigning monarch, surpassing Queen Victoria, who reigned for 63 years and 216 days.

Can't wait to hear about the other celebrations plans. I think there will be a year long of celebrations planned. I hope tons of European royals will be making their way to take part in the celebrations.

That would be so nice and a grand event for sure but I'm kind of thinking that HM wouldn't personally want a lot of fuss and bother over a personal birthday. I'm sure she realizes that her people think its a wonderful milestone to reach 90 years old and she's accepted that there will be celebrations but as far as international royals and heads of state, I think her way of thinking is that this kind of gala would be more for events centered on the monarchy itself such as the Diamond Jubilee was.

Then again I could be barking up the wrong tree. Its that kind of day.

ROYAL NORWAY 05-15-2015 05:52 PM

I'm almost sure that no head of state / foreign royals will be invited to attend these or other events to celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday. For my part, I prefer it that way.

I would think it's very important for at least some foreign royals to attend her 90th Birthday celebrations next year. I'm not expecting any foreign royals to attend the Windsor events but the other celebrations that's being planned. I'm sure they will be a service of thanksgiving at Westminster or St. Paul's. Also, I think there will be a reception and dinner too.

The British royals need to get with the program when it comes to celebrating a major milestone like this.

Its a personal milestone though and not one related to the monarchy like perhaps when HM surpasses Queen Victoria as the longest reigning monarch in history. I don't think HM would even want to celebrate that milestone to be honest. If there is one person that isn't in it for the accolades, fame and glory and self satisfaction in things, it'd be HM.

It is a milestone related to the Monarchy. No other Monarch in British history has reached the age of 90. If Her Majesty's health hold up, next years celebrations should be grand for a great grand old lady. The UK, Commonwealth and world will be coming together to celebrate her birthday and years of service.

Maybe I stated it wrong but my intent was to say that her birthday is a personal one and not related to the monarchy as her surpassing Queen Victoria as longest reigning monarch in history is.

We'll just have to wait and see what the level of celebrations are going to be. Whatever they are, I sure hope I get to see them all. :biggrin:

I can see an event with other people who turn ninety in the same year. I remember the palace doing a similar for her and Philip's anniversaries. Maybe a black tie dinner with the extended royal family?

That sounds nice. I think what celebrations there are will not be grand because 90 is very old and circumstances can change quickly, health wise Also, Prince Philip is already not in the best of health so that will be a factor in what celebrations will occur.

I would think Her Majesty's 90th would be a little similar to The late Queen Mother's 90th Birthday.

The first announcement on events to mark The Queen’s 90th birthday next year has been given by Buckingham Palace today, with main events centring around The Queen’s Birthday Parade in mid-June, and with more set to be announced later in the year.
The Queen's 90th birthday celebrations is similar to her 80th birthday celebrations in 2006.

I wonder if anything is planned for her actual birthday? On April 21, 2006: She did a walkabout in Windsor, and in the evening, she attended a private family dinner organized by Prince Charles at Kew Palace. The family came outside to watch the fireworks set off for the occasion.
