HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOUR MAJESTY!
SATURDAY JUNE 11TH: Royal Open House to Celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's Official 90th Birthday
Her Majesty Elizabeth II, Britain's longest reigning monarch, turned 90 years old on April 21. Traditionally, her official Birthday is celebrated on June 11th, with "The Trooping the Colour" military parade in London. We'll be celebrating in Grapevine with some very special guests:
At 1PM: an Official Proclamation signed by The Mayor of Grapevine will be read by Grapevine City Councilwoman Sharron Spencer, followed by a toast to The Queen, and a gathering of Corgis. Inside the shop we'll be screening her life story.
Have you met Her Majesty? Come and share your stories with retired Grenadier Guard and longtime customer, Colin Cresswell! Add your greetings to our special Birthday Card which will be sent to Buckingham Palace.
Bring your Corgis for our outdoor parade, dress them up and you may win a prize for "Best Costumed Corgi".
We offer collectible Ulster Weavers' Tea Towels, Dunoon bone china mugs, Tea Tins, 90th anniversary flags, and many more commemorative items to celebrate the occasion!
