Everyone here at Jammy Toast would like to wish our Queen a Happy Ninetieth Birthday today. Celebrations get under way later as the Queen takes part in a walkabout in Windsor and lights a symbolic beacon. Gun salutes take place around the UK at noon, while many other planned celebrations are expected to talk place around the country. The Prince of Wales has recorded a special radio broadcast for the day, in which he reads an edited passage from William Shakespeare’s Henry VIII. The reading, to be broadcast by the BBC later, is an extract from a speech by Archbishop Thomas Cranmer to King Henry VIII after the birth of the future Queen Elizabeth I.
