Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth - 90th Birthday Celebration
In celebration of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday, ten stamps feature nostalgic photographs of Her Majesty in each decade of her life, together with different members of her immediate family.
The Queen celebrates two birthdays each year. Her actual birthday falls on 21 April and her official birthday, on a Saturday in June. This occasion is known as Trooping the Colour and is celebrated with a spectacular birthday parade. Whilst The Queen spends her official birthday watching the parade, she spends her actual birthday privately, usually at Windsor Castle.
