A Birthday Party fit for a Queen

The United Kingdom is in full party mode following the Queen’s 90th Birthday on 21st April, and Windsor is gearing up for the official birthday celebrations due to take place between the 12th and 15th May at Windsor Castle. Queen Elizabeth II is already the longest reigning monarch and now also holds the crown for the country’s first nonagenarian sovereign. Her Royal Highness kicked off her birthday festivities by opening a new bandstand in Alexandra Gardens on 20th April, and the celebrations are set to continue until the weekend of her ‘official’ birthday on 10th June.

Her Majesty’s 90th Birthday Party is to be held in Royal Windsor at Windsor Castle and will be a spectacular celebration of the Queen’s life, her passion for horses, her dedication to the Commonwealth and international affairs, and her involvement with the Navy, Army and Air Force. The bash will be a 90 minute story featuring 900 horses and over 1500 participants from the UK and across the globe. The 90 year journey will unfold the story of her birth, World War 2, her marriage, her coronation and her reign of over 60 years.

Held in the private gardens of Windsor Castle, it is the only time of year that the public are allowed into these exclusive grounds. A member of the Royal family is due to attend every night and Queen Elizabeth II will be present on the final night on 15th May. The star-studded event will be hosted by Ant and Dec and feature performances from opera singer Katherine Jenkins, pop-star Kylie Minogue, soul singer Beverley Knight, chart-topper Jess Glynn and many more.
