The Queen’s Ninetieth Birthday.

On Sunday Her Majesty the Queen celebrated her Official 9oth Birthday. Her actual Birthday was in April, but you know ,Queen’s are definitely allowed more than one. 😉

All over the country her subjects celebrated with her. Street Parties, Tea Parties and Picnics galore. Luckily for us we didn’t need to picnic in poncho’s to protect us from the drizzle. I met up with some friends and their children at the local Church Hall for Tea, Cake and family fun. 🙂

In the absence of the real Queen, the Queen’s Birthday Cake was cut by a lady whose 9oth Birthday it was too.

Lydia and Bronte nearly fell in the cake. 😉

I wish I could show you photographs of the lovely cream teas we enjoyed but I hopelessly forgot to take any. The clean plates obviously mean they were good!

What do you think of the kids crowns, made from paper plates. Good idea hey.  There was a Guess the Royal Baby picture competition, a Birthday Card to sign, Birthday Cake to pass round and we all sang a rousing ‘God Save The Queen’….. though not the Sex Pistols version. 😉

The Queen herself actually turned up at the last minute. HRH is very well travelled !

Lydia is mesmerised by Her Majesty. 🙂 Photo J Blackburn.
