- Jul 4, 2006Hello Dee,
Her real birthday, which falls in April; her official
birthady, which falls in June and is celebrated by the
Trooping of the Colour; and her third birthday, which
is a one-off since she turned 80 this year, which was
celebrated at Buck House (Buckingham Palace) a
fortnight ago when 2000 children agedfrom 6 to 14 were
invited to a huge party in the Palace Gardens, whith a
Pantomime (something you don';t have in the States)
featuring characters from British children's
literature iver the cenbturies, plAyed by popular
British tv personalities. Next year she will revert to
only her actual birthday and her official birthday.
