The World's Greatest Music
On 21 April 2016, Britain celebrates the 90th birthday of HM The Queen - the country's longest-serving monarch. Classic FM takes a look back at her life in pictures.
2002: Queen Elizabeth II waves to the crowd as she rides, in the Gold State coach from Buckingham Palace to St Paul's Cathedral for a service of Thanksgiving to celebrate to her Golden Jubilee. The coach was built for King George III in 1762, and has only been used by the Queen twice before - for her Coronation, and her Silver Jubilee. Later, after lunch at Guildhall in the City of London, she will watch a parade and carnival along The Mall. Monday night saw more than one million people gather in central London to hear the Party in the Palace concert, and to watch a spectacular firework display.
