Her Royal Highness turned 90 on Thursday, April 21, and celebrated in style in a statement-making outfit.
Queen Elizabeth II donned a cheerful, bright pastel green coat while greeting subjects in Windsor, England, with her husband of 68 years, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
She paired the vibrant “spring grass green” garment with a matching dress and hat that featured a flower accessory (all by her designer and milliner Angela Kelly), black pumps and an elegant Launer London handbag. A pair of Genevieve Lawson white gloves and her favorite pin — the star diamond brooch, gifted to her in 1981 — topped off the entire look perfectly.
To honor the United Kingdom’s longest-reigning monarch entering her ninth decade, U.K.-based footwear company Aruna Seth recently launched a line of Swarovski crystal–embellished wedges designed to reflect the Union Jack flag, and the queen’s grandson, future king Prince William, gave a speech.
“I am incredibly lucky to have my grandmother in my life. As she turns 90, she is a remarkably energetic and dedicated guiding force for her family,” the duke of Cambridge, 33, said at an April 11 Indian garden party celebrating the queen’s birthday. “She may be my grandmother, but she is also very much the boss!”
