7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

Buck­ing­ham Palace has re­leased pho­to­graphs of Queen El­iz­a­beth II as a young girl amid cel­e­bra­tions mark­ing her 90th birth­day.

One im­age (below) shows a young Princess El­iz­a­beth frol­ick­ing with her fa­ther, Ge­orge VI, near a swim­ming pool - her arms out­stretched, ready to dive in. An­other photo (right) shows her gen­tly gazing at a bird perched on her arm.

The re­lease is part of a four-day pageant this week­end that salutes her long reign. The ex­trav­a­ganza co­in­cides with the Royal Wind­sor Horse Show, on part of the es­tate that in­cludes Wind­sor Cas­tle.

The fes­ti­val will cli­max this evening with a na­tional tele­vised show to be at­tended by the queen and her hus­band, Prince Philip. The per­form­ers will in­clude Gary Bar­low, He­len Mir­ren, Kylie Minogue and Shirley Bassey.
