Happy Birthday Queen Elizabeth. She became Queen Of England in 1952, was married In 1947 to Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and is blessed with four children: Charles, Anne, Andrew, and Edward. Queen Elizabeth kicked off birthday celebrations on Wednesday in a dutiful display: at a Royal Mail delivery center, where she and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, watched workers sort mail and were serenaded by a choir of postal employees. Today, she is to light the first of more than 900 celebratory beacons. On Friday, President Obama will offer the queen birthday wishes at Windsor Castle. More Pictures after the cut.
