Here at Seraphine, we would like to wish many happy returns to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, who celebrates her 90th birthday this week!
This week kicks off what is set to be a full program of celebrations across the UK to mark this milestone year. The Queen and Prince Philip will carry out a series of visits near their home in Windsor. And on Thursday evening The Queen will light the first in a chain of over 900 beacons across the UK and worldwide to mark the occasion, followed by a lavish private dinner party thrown by Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall.
Of course the celebrations don’t stop there! In May Queen Elizabeth will invite members of the public to her private gardens at Windsor Castle for a ticketed horse pageant. And in June Her Majesty will celebrate her official birthday on the 11th with the traditional Trooping of the Colour Parade, followed by a giant street party on The Mall the next day.
Here at Seraphine we love the Royal Family. Last year Seraphine Founder Cecile Reinaud was honoured to be invited to Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen and Prince Philip. The invitation was extended by royal decree in celebration of Seraphine’s acceptance of The Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
The winners of the Queen’s Awards are chosen and presented by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth herself, based on recommendations from the Prime Minister’s Advisory Committee, as well as a panel of industry experts, so it was a great privilege to be selected.
Cecile said of the award; “It is a huge honour to receive this award and a tribute to how Britain nurtures and encourages entrepreneurship and international trade. Seraphine has gone from strength to strength over the past few years in pioneering fashionable maternity wear, and we can’t wait to continue this growth in years to come.”
Happy Birthday Ma’am!
