The Queen's 90th birthday celebrations are shaping up to be an A-list affair. Stars like Kylie Minogue and Katherine Jenkins will perform for the monarch during a special concert at Windsor Castle in May. The event will be hosted by British television personalities Ant and Dec and will be broadcast live in the UK.

More than 900 horses and 1500 participants will join the celebrations, which will tell the story of the Queen's life from her birth in 1926 to her coronation and reign spanning more than 60 years.

This spectacular evening will bring together some of the best known names in the entertainment world who will perform with 900 horses and 1500 participants to mark this very special birthday."


The event is just one of many celebrations planned to mark the Queen's 90th birthday. The monarch, who reaches the milestone age on Apr. 21, will spend the day carrying out two public engagements in Windsor with the Duke of Edinburgh.

After officially opening The Queen's Walkway in the town, the royal couple will greet well-wishers on a walkabout, before participating in a beacon lighting ceremony with Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall on Thursday evening.
