Royals: 90th birthday photo collection
Pomp, pageantry and family fun were on display for the Queen’s 90th birthday party in front of cheering crowds,
Twenty-four years after the “annus horribilis” that saw her children’s marriages in ruins and a terrible fire at Windsor Castle, the Queen celebrated her official 90th birthday with family unity, ear-to-ear smiles and a debut Buckingham Palace balcony appearance from her greatgranddaughter Princess Charlotte. The annual Trooping the Colour was truly historic and, at The Patron’s Lunch the next day, 10,000 charity workers dined along The Mall.

brother, Prince George.
Clockwise from above: The Patron’s Lunch on The Mall celebrated the Queen’s patronage of more than 600 charities; laughing with Prince William; Princes William and Harry, and the Duchess of Cambridge applaud the Queen; the Queen and Prince Philip drive down The Mall.
