Happy Birthday Your Majesty!

Monday April 21, 2014
Queen Elizabeth II turns 88 today (21 April 2014) although she celebrates her official birthday on a Saturday in June with the annual Trooping the Colour.

Tuesday April 15, 2014
St. Patrick's Day is well celebrated in London but we'll also have St. George's Day celebrations, although on a much smaller scale.

St George's Day is on 23 April but there's a Feast of St George in Trafalgar Square on Monday 21 April 2014 with music, dancing and lots of eating. You can find out about other celebrations, including Morris dancing, at www.stgeorgesholiday.com. Image © Daniel Berehulak/Getty Images | London Travel Blog
