The royal family came together to celebrate the Queen – who’s birthday is actually April 21 -- but it was little Charlotte who stole the show. The 1-year-old wore a smocked dress and shoes in pale pink, and her hair was swept to the side by a matching pink clip. But most importantly, she waved to the crowd, just like her big brother did during his Buckingham Palace balcony debut during last year’s annual military parade.

The Queen looked just as smashing, marking her milestone birthday in a vibrant green coat and dress by Stewart Parvin and matching hat by Rachel Trevor Morgan, which was decorated with cerise colored flowers.

The streets of London were filled with more than 1,400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and approximately 400 musicians. The parade route extended from Buckingham Palace along The Mall to Horse Guards Parade, Whitehall and circled back.

Queen Elizabeth has enjoyed several celebrations, including an opulent horse show with many members of her family and a recent visit from Barack and Michelle Obama.

In honor of the Queen’s birthday, Twitter also created a purple crown emoji that pops up when you write #Queenat90 or #HappyBirthdayYourMajesty.

Britain's longest-reigning monarch also landed her second Vanity Fair cover. She shared the spotlight, per her request, with her four dogs, Holly, Willow, Vulcan, and Candy.

Her canine companions were also part of a series of portraits shot for the magazine’s summer issue, which were taken by iconic fashion photographer Annie Leibovitz.
