Prince Harry reveals what The Queen’s perfect birthday present would be

Prince Harry has revealed what would be the perfect birthday present for his grandmother, The Queen.

Speaking at a reception in the Guildhall, the 31-year-old said the best present Her Majesty could get would be “a day off so she could lie about and do nothing.”

Speaking at the post thanksgiving service, Harry said The Queen should “really should be putting her feet up but wanted to be here for the people.”

The fifth-in-line to the throne attended a post-service reception which took place in the Guildhall after the nation service of Thanksgiving which celebrates Her Majesty’s life on the occasion of her official 90th birthday.

Prince Harry attended the service of thanksgiving alongside 52 other members of the Royal Family, politicians past and present, and other acclaimed guests.

It is also The Duke of Edinburgh’s 95th birthday today, although the Queen’s husband had requested that there shouldn’t be any fuss as it would distract attention away from her Majesty’s official birthday.

The Queen’s birthday celebrations will continue into the weekend.

On Saturday, The Queen’s Birthday Parade, Trooping the Colour will take place on Horseguards Parade. Senior members of the Royal Family, including Prince Harry, will join Her Majesty on this occasion.

They will then travel back to Buckingham Palace to make their annual appearance on the balcony to watch the RAF flypast.

On Sunday, the Patron’s Lunch will attract 10,000 guests to the Mall outside of Buckingham Palace where they will take part in a huge street party. Tickets, which cost £150 per person, are being allocated through a ballot system and will see thousands of people will join guests from more than 600 charities of which The Queen is patron.

The Queen’s grandson Peter Philips organised the event for his grandmother who is said to be “very touched” by the country’s affection of her.
