Crowds celebrate Queen Elizabeth's 90th birthday walkabout

Britain's Queen Elizabeth turns 90 on Thursday with beacons and gun salutes heralding the birthday of the world's oldest monarch, who still performs hundreds of engagements a year and shows no signs of losing her appetite for the job.

Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh (born Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark, 10 June 1921, is the husband of Elizabeth II. He is the United Kingdom's longest-serving consort and the oldest serving spouse of a reigning British monarch. Member of the Danish-German House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg, Prince Philip was born into the Greek royal family, but his family was exiled from Greece when he was a child.

Starting from Queen Elizabeth 1st's childhood this book depicts the details of Elizabeth before being queen and her story. Not sure I like Alison Weir's style of writing, quite back and forth on the storyline.
