On her 90th birthday, Queen Elizabeth II tweets her thanks to well-wishers

Queen Elizabeth II, Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, celebrated her 90th birthday on Thursday with a day full of pomp, ceremony and pageantry.

The monarch decided to spend her landmark birthday at her royal residence, Windsor Castle, where she spends the majority of her time.

Smiling broadly and with her 94-year-old husband Prince Philip by her side, she took part in a walkabout in the nearby town of Windsor, west of London, during which she was inundated by bouquets of flowers and children singing “Happy Birthday.”
