On the 21st April, the Queen turned 92 – a fantastic achievement for the long-reigning and much-admired monarch who has devoted her life to the service of the country. And with the royal wedding of Harry and Megan still very much fresh in our minds, there are plenty of opportunities to indulge in royal fever and take advantage of the superb weather with a garden party.
