All the Details From Queen Elizabeth's Belated Birthday Celebration

If being the queen isn't a big enough deal, turning 90 should be -- and thankfully, the royal family gets it. They celebrated Queen Elizabeth's 90th birthday with just the right amount of pizzazz. Or, okay, enough pizzazz if you're the queen and turning 90. Probably too much pizzazz if you're anyone else.

Though her birthday is in April and the whole country's celebration will be in June, Prince Charles and Camilla threw QE a special party over the weekend to pay a special tribute to her long life. The whole thing centered around the Royal Windsor Horse Show (because Elizabeth's fave animals are horses, naturally), which was hosted on the grounds of Windsor Castle.

But it was no ordinary show -- the show brought together horses and performers from all over the world and together, they told the story of Elizabeth's reign. We have no idea what this would actually look like in practice, but it definitely sounds ... spectacular.

Some celebs showed up, too -- family favorite James Blunt was there, along with Dancing with the Stars alum Katherine Jenkins, Helen Mirren, and Shirley Bassey.

Naturally, Kate showed up casually matching Prince William and Harry's coats with a poppy red jacket of her own, and looked downright stunning doing it. George and Charlotte weren't there, but for the most part, the rest of the fam was. 

All in all, it looks like the queen had a lovely time. We wish her a happy birthday!
