Celebrate Queen Elizabeth II's 90th Birthday with this 10 Amazing Royal Collectibles


On April 21, Queen Elizabeth II will celebrate another significant milestone in her life—Her Majesty will turn 90—a feat seldom achieved by a reigning monarch. For a woman so iconic as Queen Elizabeth II, her life has been so full of achievements. She was born with slim chances of becoming Queen someday given that at that time, her uncle, then the Prince of Wales, has had so many prospects of getting married and fathering children. But luck turned towards her and in 1952, she was crowned Queen not only of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, but of the Commonwealth. In 2012, she celebrated her Diamond Jubilee on the throne.
