The Queen, who recently celebrated becoming the longest-reigning monarch in Great Britain, turns 90 on April 21. But William and Harry are already reportedly planning to turn her birthday into a huge affair. In contrast to the small dinner the Queen and her family had in Scotland to honor her 63-year reign, the royal princes want to host a huge street fair in early June to ring in Elizabeth's 90th year.

Preparations are already under way. William and Harry have apparently secured a half-mile road in St. James's Park called the Mall and are expecting 10,000 people to attend a picnic lunch on June 12 to toast the Queen. The event will be called the "Patron's Lunch" and will celebrate 600 charities and organizations that Elizabeth has supported throughout her reign. The Queen and her husband, Prince Philip, will be guests of honor, and the lunch will be the last of several weekend events that will begin with a "service of thanksgiving" at St. Paul's Cathedral on June 10 and include the Queen's annual birthday parade, Trooping the Colour, on June 11.

Well done, guys. I get the feeling the Queen is the type of person who would prefer a no-fuss birthday celebration, but in my opinion, when you get to be 90, you totally deserve as much fuss as your loved ones wish to throw your way. It sounds like all plans are pretty much taken care of, which should make the Queen feel loved and cherished by her grandsons.
