Queen Elizabeth II turns 91

22 April 2017

Now, as we celebrate Queen Elizabeth's 91st birthday (yes, she is 91 years old!), it's only right that we look back on all that she has accomplished.

Britain marked the 91st birthday of Queen Elizabeth II, with the world's longest-reigning monarch. That way, there will be better weather for her birthday parade, Trooping the Colour. With the exception of Lyndon Johnson, the Queen has met with every president from Truman to Obama and has announced a state visit to the United Kingdom for President Trump in October.

A fire destroys large parts of Windsor Castle and her children Prince Charles, Princess Anne and Prince Andrew all see their marriages break down, causing the Queen to label 1992 "an annus horribilis" ("horrible year", in Latin).
