Prime Minister David Cameron paid tribute to the queen as “a rock of strength for our nation” and her son and heir Prince Charles marked the occasion by reading Shakespeare verses in a special broadcast on the BBC radio.The sovereign, who last year overtook her great-great grandmother queen Victoria to become Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, will meet well-wishers near Windsor Castle later to mark the day.
