There will be a 62-gun salute at the Tower of London to mark the Queen's birthday.

It will be fired from four 25-pounder guns by the Honourable Artillery Company (HAC) at Gun Wharf (the cobbled path between the Tower of London and the river).

The old girl will be 91 years old this year — and definitely not 21 (again). Like all women, she tries to convince us that she's still 21 (but she's not). But will we finally let her retire and put her feet up for a well-deserved retirement at Windsor Castle? Answer: no.
