Queen Elizabeth turns 89 as she awaits her fifth Great-Grandchild

Queen Elizabeth turned 89 on Tuesday, as she waits to welcome her fifth great-grandchild. This begins the landmark year leading up to her 90th birthday.
The British Monarch is said to be spending her birthday privately at home at Windsor Castle, London.

The palace insiders said that the Queen tends to always have her birthday celebrated at the castle with her husband Prince Philip, 93, and she may be seen out riding her horse. The members of her family may also come in to see her and celebrate with her on her birthday.

The nation and the Queen will mark her birthday in more lavish celebration in June, when a ceremonial military exercise called Trooping the Colour, takes place in London.

But the Queen and her family have more to celebrate by then as Prince William and Princess Kate’s second child added to the list of the Queen’s great-grandchild. The expected child will soon join brother George, 21 month old, and cousins Mia Tindall, 15 month old, the daughter of Zara and Mike Tindall, and the daughters of Peter and Autumn Philips namely Savannah, 4 and Isla, 3.

Lots are teasing and betting on William and Kate’s new baby being a girl and named Elizabeth.

As a head of state, the British monarch will still receive her “red boxes” of diplomatic and political papers she must read. The landmarks continue this year. She is set to become the longest-serving British monarch of all time in September. Beating the record of Queen Victoria’s 63 years and 216 days.
