Happy 83rd Birthday Queenie

It's Her Royal Majesty's Queen Elizabeth 2 Queen of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and the other Commonwealth realms 83rd birthday today. Happy Birthday Ma'am.
The common consensus seems to be that she looks good for an 83 year old and i admit that she does look particularly peachy and healthy although she does wear some strikingly silly hats which we could put down to cataracts or failing eyesight. Could be Prince Philip is too scared to say: "Lizzie, that hat makes you look like a dork' but she is the Queen and could have him dropped off onto a inhabited Island somewhere if he ticked her off.
The Royals do tend to live long and healthy lives, much to Prince Charles disappointment, but i know the Royal secret to living to a fair old age and looking an octogenarian picture of health. Do nothing.
That's the Royals secret. They do nothing whatsoever. Wave at the plebs lining the streets every now and then and remember to feed the corgi's while having your every whim seen to by an army of lackeys, but that's it.
Once a year she has to drag herself in front of a TV camera and waffle about her Commonwealth and what a good year it's been for her family and then she has the other 364 days, 23 hours and 45 minutes free to flounce off around the World and read about her Grandson getting drunk.
Happy Birthday Lizzie, and I'm sure you will have many more. Now get a job.
