QUEEN CELEBRATES 90TH BIRTHDAY

maxresdefault

Today, the Queen will celebrate her 90th birthday, making her the UK’s first-ever nonagenarian monarch. While today is her official birthday, the main focus of the celebrations will be held on her state birthday in June – a tradition started by George II in 1748; born in November, he felt the weather would be too cold at that time of year for his annual birthday parade so instead combined the celebrations with the annual spring military parade known as Trooping the Colour. This year, the event will take place on 11th June, the day after the Duke of Edinburgh’s 95th birthday, and will be accompanied by other events throughout the weekend, including The Patron’s Lunch – a picnic on The Mall for 10,000 people. Pub opening hours will be extended on Friday 10th June in honour of the occasion. Festivities will also be held from 12-15th May at Windsor Castle, culminating with a 90-minute show featuring performances from the likes of Kylie Mino.

We suggest making detailed to-do lists before every single day of work, as well as getting a jump on any tasks that may be difficult to complete while in the office (thanks, open seating plans).
