The Queen greets thousands of well-wishers lining the streets in Windsor

The Queen has taken to the streets of Windsor today where she met the thousands of well-wishers lining the town’s roads to wish her a happy birthday.

Her Majesty and The Duke of Edinburgh both met and spoke with the crowds, whilst collecting flowers, cards and other gifts that people have been presenting to her.

When The Queen arrived in Windsor, a rendition of Happy Birthday erupted from the crowds as the Queen’s Guards played the tune with their instruments.

After their walk, the couple climbed into an open-top car dubbed the “Queenmobile”.

The 90-year-old monarch was wearing a light green wool and silk weave coat, with a matching dress and hat designed by Angela Kelly.

The Queen was also photographed cutting her cake, which was made by Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain.

Mrs Hussain personally presented the Queen with her orange drizzle birthday cake.

The Queen cut the first slice of cake off, although, she didn’t eat it immediately.

Later on today, beacons will be lighted across the country in celebration of the monarch’s longevity and in the hope of many more to come.

The beacons come after gun salutes took place all across the UK and the bells from Westminster Abbey chimed.

In the evening, Prince Charles will host a private dinner for the Royal Family at Windsor Castle in honour of The Queen.

Usually, Her Majesty tends to spend her birthday privately with just her family. However, with such a milestone event, they decided to celebrate publicly this year, much to the delight of the crowd.
