Queen Elizabeth II turns 90 on Thursday (April 21), and ahead of nationwide celebrations, she shared the spotlight with another British institution: the Royal Mail.

The postal service is marking its own 500th anniversary, and launching a collection of ten new stamps in honour of Britain’s longest-serving monarch.

On the eve of her birthday, the queen visited a Royal Mail delivery office near her Berkshire castle. She was accompanied by her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh.

As she left the postal depot, which was renamed in her honor, the crowd joined in with two choirs to sing ‘Happy Birthday’.
