Queen Elizabeth II marks 90th birthday with Windsor walkabout


A historic milestone is marked in style, as British royal HRH Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her 90th birthday with a visit to Windsor.

Huge crowds cheer as the nation’s first-ever nonagenarian monarch takes a tour of the area in a customised open-top Range Rover with her husband Prince Philip.

The sprightly silver-haired sovereign wears a spring grass green wool and silk weave coat, paired with a matching dress and hat.

Among the crowds are 2 year old Garrett Lamos who watches proceedings from his mother Jessica’s shoulders, as well as a rowdy crowd of workers who sing ‘happy birthday dear queenie’ from their office balcony. And 56 year-old royalist Caroline Wagstaff from Windsor who proudly claims the Queen acknowledged her as she passed by.

The much-loved regent has been on the throne for a staggering 64 years and counting, beating the record set by her grandmother Queen Victoria.

It is worth remembering that celebrations will recommence on June 1st when her official birthday is marked.
