Crowds across Britain have gathered on Thursday to celebrate the 90th birthday of Queen Elizabeth II, the oldest monarch in the world, who has often spoken out about her strong Christian faith and how central following Jesus Christ is in her life.
Prime Minister David Cameron called her "a rock of strength for our nation," Reuters reports. And close to 1,000 beacons will be lit later in the day to celebrate the occasion.
"All of us are here to respect the queen and to show her our affection and how much we appreciate all her years of service and to wish her a happy birthday," said Donna Werner who traveled to the queen's Windsor Castle home, west of London, all the way from Connecticut to pay her respects. more >>
The Duchess of Cambridge donned an unexpected but still stylish look for a reception she and her husband, Prince William, held at Kensington Palace on Wednesday, April 6, for Indian and Bhutanese people currently residing in the United Kingdom.
For the pre-tour reception, Kate Middleton wore a floor-length blue dress from Saloni Lodha, the Indian-born and British-based designer whose Saloni line Middleton has previously favored for her appearance at the Fostering Excellence Awards in 2015.
The Saloni gown Middleton wore for Wednesday's event was a sheer, royal blue number adorned with polka dots. Though the sheer illusion panel at its front and the deep V at the back made for a racier choice for the typically demurely-dressed Catherine, the long sleeves and ruffled high neckline kept it modest. more >>

In the rare interview, which forms part of a televised documentary celebrating Her Majesty The Queen's upcoming milestone 90th birthday, the Duchess said that after mulling over the problem, she eventually turned to her own grandmother's chutney recipe and handcrafted her Christmas gift. more >>
The U.K.'s national anthem "God Save the Queen" will continue playing at British sporting events, despite a push by the Labour Party to change the song to something more "English."
Last week, Labour MP Toby Perkins introduced a bill to Parliament that called for England to come up with its own national anthem, just as Whales and Scotland have done.
Britain's Queen Elizabeth II reflects on Jesus' central role in her life in a new book ahead of her 90th birthday, calling Christ "the King she serves" in the title.
