Deputy Mayor Darryl Wilson says “Today we celebrate the 90th birthday of our Monarch, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
For 90 years Her Majesty has been a source of hope and inspiration, not only for the people of the United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland, the Commonwealth, but also to many millions of people across the world.
The Queen has ruled for longer than any other British Monarch, becoming a well respected figure across the globe. Her phenomenal reign has seen her travel more extensively than any other monarch, carrying out many historic visits overseas .
Her sense of duty and her devotion to a life of service has been evident as she carries out her duties with dedication and dignity.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish Her Majesty a very happy 90th birthday. God save the Queen”
