How will you mark the Queen's Birthday?
This year the Queen turns 90 and she celebrates with two birthdays. Her actual birth-date on the 21st of April and her official birthday on the second Saturday in June. She usually spends her real birthday privately with family.
The Queen's 90th Birthday Celebration will take place in the private grounds of Windsor Castle in the evenings of 12th – 15th May 2016. The programme will be filled with music, song, dance and equestrian displays.
On her official birthday, Her Majesty and members of Royal Family attend the Trooping the Colour parade which moves between Buckingham Palace, The Mall and Horseguards' Parade and appears on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
