CNN STUDENT NEWS:英国为女王伊丽莎白二世90岁生日举行庆典.jpg 

From North Dakota to southern Vietnam, get ready to go globe-trotting on the "Roll Call".Nedrose High School is up first.From the Rough Rider State, we're looking up to the Cardinals in Minot.Now to the capital of Utah.In Salt Lake City, thank you for watching from the Salt Lake Valley Detention Center.And from the Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, it's great to see our viewers at Starlight International School.

Thanks for your request at CNNStudentNews.com.The queen's 90th birthday is greater than anyone's super sweet 16.Britain's Queen Elizabeth II is enjoying a series of celebrations.The one this weekend involved hundreds of horses and hundreds more musicians, dancers, performers.It's all in honor of the United Kingdom's longest reigning monarch.She reached that milestone last year, exceeding the reign of her great, great grandmother, Queen Victoria.Even though her position is largely ceremonial, the queen does not have much lawmaking power which rests with Britain's parliament.She's a revered person around the world.What took place over the weekend is only one of the celebrations she'll have.

The two birthdays days all the way back to George II in 1748.His real birth, it was in November, and he thought they might get cold and they might get ailed.So, I'm going to move it to June, where fingers crossed, the weather is going better.So, the queen's real birthday, 21st of April, 1926, when she was born.That celebrated with a quiet family celebration and she has her official birthday, usually second Saturday in June, and what we have is trooping the colour, big parades, big celebration, the queen in her carriage, all based in London here at Buckingham Palace.But this year, because she's 90, she has a birthday in May as well, and that's going to be much more fun, pop concerts, more shows.So we have three birthdays, actual birthday, the official birthday, and the fun birthday.

And it's not just in Britain that the queen's birthday celebrated.It's across the commonwealth, including in Canada, where it's a public holiday and Australia, where it defers according to where you are.Some people are saying she's 90, it could be the last big birthday.But her mother did live to 101.So, hopefully, we're going to be celebrating a big 100th birthday in 2026.
