This is a milestone year for Queen Elizabeth!
The Monarch will be turning 90 on April 21 — so obviously it’s time to celebrate!!
Her eldest grandchild Peter Phillips is organizing the Patrons’ Lunch to be held on June 12, which is a part of the four-day extravaganza celebrating the Queen.
The birthday bash is nearly five months away but is already being dubbed the “biggest street party” EVER as ten thousand people are expected to attend the lunch alone.
The event will be held in the Mall which is the road leading up to Buckingham Palace.
To pull something like this off definitely comes with a cost.
“It’s not exactly a cheap exercise. Fortunately our corporate partners have provided the funding for the majority of the costs. This is a not-for-profit event. SEL is being paid a set fee basically to take this from sign-off from the palace through to delivery of the event.”
As such, over 600 charities and organizations of which the Queen is a patron will have the opportunity to buy 9,000 of the tix and sell 40 percent of them as fundraising efforts. In February, the remaining 1,000 tickets will be available to the public.
But it isn’t all about the Queen — her husband Prince Philip turns the big 9-5 on June 10.
Sounds like tons of fun to be had by all!
