Elizabeth II of England is enjoying her 91st birthday today. She became queen in 1952. There have been 13 US presidents since her reign began beginning with Harry S. Truman. She is also the world's longest-reigning monarch since King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand died last year. In September of 2015 she became Britain's longest reigning monarch since Queen Victoria. She has reigned for 65 years and 75 days now. ET magazine says in a recent article that her death and funeral have already been planned and these plans have been in place for over a decade. This plan has been dubbed "Operation London Bridge". After a year of celebration to denote her 90th birthday last year this years will be rather low key. A gun salute at London's Tower Bridge and Hyde Park will hallmark her special day.

I saw her in Scotland in 1964 when she came to live in her castle there for the summer. Only two of her children were born then. Funny to remember Charles as a little boy!

That would be funny. Can't imagine. Sort of a Howard Wolowitz type I think.

@celticeagle Who's Howard Wolowitz? I've never seen or heard the name. I don't live in your country.

My husband can still remember when she visited The Bahamas. He was very young. He rather likes her. We don't get cable TV any more so if they're having one of those concerts, I won't get to watch it. I watched one of them before several years ago and it was a lot of fun!
