The Queen’s life in pictures: Her most memorable moments from the last 90 years – watch our fantastic 40 second video above.
Our nation’s longest serving monarch, Queen Elizabeth II has seen our country through both some of the best, and worst, of times. Here, we look back through her life in pictures, from her early childhood, to her grand coronation, and to today as she continues to fulfill her public duties and takes on another big role – as great-grandmother to Savannah, Mia, Prince George, and little Princess Charlotte!
Celebrating her ‘real’ birthday on the 21 of April 2016, this will kick start lots of amazing celebrations happening all over the UK. Plus on June the 11 she celebrates her official birthday so there will be lots of celebrations around the country including:
Friday 10 June – This when the Service of Thanksgiving takes place at St Paul’s Cathedral AND it’s also the same day of the Duke of Edinburgh’s 95th birthday! This starts the Queen’s birthday weekend. Wohoo! Let’s get the parties started!
Sunday 11 June – This is when the Queen will mark her official birthday with a Trooping the Colour parade between Buckingham Palace, The Mall and Horseguards’ Parade. The royal family will gather on the balcony at Buckingham Palace and we are all hoping for another glimpse of Prince George and Princess Charlotte!
Sunday 11 June – This is ALSO the day that the whole UK will celebrate with street and garden parties at home! Are you hosting or attending a party in your area?
