Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her 88th birthday today, marking the occasion privately at Windsor Castle. I was interviewed by Janet Davison of CBC.ca about the Queen at 88. Although the monarch’s children and grandchildren are assuming a larger number of official engagements, especially overseas tours, the Queen continues to have a full schedule. If she matches the longevity of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, she may still be an active public figure for years to come.
