Queen is showing no signs of slowing down as she turns 90

Editor's Viewpoint

By any measure Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is a remarkable lady. Not only is she the UK's longest serving monarch but as she approaches her 90th birthday tomorrow, she seems indestructible.

Along with the soon-to-be 95-year-old Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen maintains a punishing schedule which would tax a younger person.

But she has devoted her life to the duties of the sovereign and performed them with a sureness of touch and that little air of mystique which continues to make the British monarchy a global brand and attraction. So, it is with great pleasure that we wish Her Majesty many happy returns.
