Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - CONTENTS - writes Juliet Rieden.

Let’s cel­e­brate!

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.

Princess Charlotte makes her bal­cony de­but with her

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.
