Queen will party with 10,000 in Mall for 90th birthday despite terror threat | Latest News | Breaking UK News & World News Headlines | Daily Star
Quote:
Police will endeavour to throw a ring of steel around the giant street party in The Mall near Buckingham Palace on June 12.

But security experts fear they will have little control over who attends the event. Most tickets for the open-air bash will be going out to invited guests.

But charities linked to the Queen are being allowed to sell 40% of their ticket allocation to boost their donations coffers.

They will be made available to the general public via raffles and auctions throughout Britain. That means police and the security services face the nightmare prospect of up to 4,000 “unknowns” attending.

Royal insiders say the Queen will insist on being visible and will not hide behind bullet-proof screens or other security apparatus.

A source said: “Policing a royal event is difficult at the best of times. This is a nightmare scenario as the final destination of so many of these tickets will be unknown.”

I must say that I am not the least surprised! The queen has always put on a brave face and carried on, even in frightening times!

Well, to make things relative: the Queen knows she has the very best protection available. Protection people like you or me do not have when we enter an airport or a metro station. It makes difference to go to a meeting knowing there were bomb checks on beforehand, with continue CCTV-surveillances from buildings and drones, with metal detectors and safety dogs in the streets and the very best snipers on the rooftops.

True, but a determined assassin or group can be hard to stop.

Presidents Kennedy and Reagan were still shot despite close Secret Service protection. The IRA still managed to blow up the Conservative Party conference in Brighton despite the security services being aware of the general threat from republican groups. I know protection has improved since the 1980's but I would think both the Secret Service and Scotland Yard would have claimed their protection was the very best at that time.

The Queen has always said she has to be seen to be believed. I can't see her (or King Charles for that matter) not interacting with the public out of security concerns.

The Royal Mint will today release a commemorative £5 coin to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday – its design unveiled here exclusively in The Mail on Sunday.

Created by artist and sculptor Christopher Hobbs, the coin features a classical garland of nine roses – one for each of the Queen’s decades – as well as the Royal cypher ‘EIIR’, and number 90.

The £5 coin comes in a variety of finishes and metals including silver, gold and platinum gold, with prices from £20 to an astonishing £5,000 for a rare platinum edition.

The Queen turns 90 on April 21 but including her age on the coin was a controversial move, Mr Hobbs said. ‘I thought it was important to have the 90 prominently on the coin, but I was told it raised a few eyebrows at the palace,’ he told The Mail on Sunday.

‘Apparently it’s not the done thing pointing out the Queen’s age but I think in this case it was absolutely necessary and the point was taken. I am told the design was submitted to the Queen and she passed it.’

A schoolgirl from Stamford has been selected as finalist in a nationwide competition to design a birthday cake to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday and be sold in supermarkets.

Budding designers were asked by Waitrose to create and design the retailer’s official cake to celebrate the historic occasion, with hundreds of entrants narrowed down to just five finalists from across the UK.


Tilly Chisholm, from Stamford, was among the five finalists who were invited to meet the judges at the final stage of the competition at the Waitrose Cookery School in King’s Cross.

I just checked and it was taken down.

I think you need to keep checking as it appears the person or people are putting it on youtube and it stays for several days before being taken down.

Those are really wonderful and puzzling gowns! I had never seen those items before, nor did I thought the queen was much the type to wear that style! Thanks eya!

I'd imagine it will be a very interesting exhibition and will attract a lot of extra visitors to the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

The creations in her wardrobe has calmed down these days, but so much beautiful details were applied to her dresses back in the day. She was a very fashionable in her day.

For anyone who still hasn't seen Our Queen at 90, I just watched it on dailymotion.com. It's in 7 parts, but it is all there.
