Pub hours to be extended for Queen’s 90th

Queen Elizabeth II is turning 90!

Her actual birthday is April 21, while her official birthday (held in the summer for better parade weather) is June 11. Pub opening hours in both England and Wales will be until 1am. The lengthened opening also coincides with the first games for England and Wales in the European football championships.

There will be a series of events over the June weekend to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday.

These will include a street party in The Mall, a service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral and the traditional Trooping the Colour ceremony, also known as the Queen’s Birthday Parade, at Horse Guards Parade.

Announcing the extension during Prime Minister’s Questions, Mr Cameron said: “I’m sure that will be welcomed right across the House.”
