The Queen – 90 years Young

Spending the day at Windsor Castle

Happy Birthday to Queen Elizabeth who is celebrating her 90th today. She ascended to the throne in 1952, and last September surpassed Queen Victoria as the longest-serving monarch (Victoria held the throne for  63 years and 216 days). She has lived through some extraordinary times – World War II, the moon landing, the end of the Cold War and the advent of peace in Northern Ireland. Some things you maybe didn’t know about Queen Elizabeth:

  • she doesn’t have a passport or a drivers licence
  • doesn’t wear jeans
  • doesn’t vote
  • never goes on tour without Prince Philip
  • she does not wear a seat belt
