Royal collector and Wembley resident Margaret Tyler joined pupils at Byron Court School in Spencer Road, as they celebrated Queen Elizabeth 11 90th birthday party.

The pupils, who were encouraged to dress in red, white and blue, enjoyed a picnic on the school field while listening to the melodic sounds of famous pieces of English music.

They sang a rousing version of happy birthday and the National Anthem.

Fiona Khalfi, a teaching assistant at the school, said: “During the week the children learnt about the British Royal family and their place in history, during the holidays some children created beautiful regal works of art including a corgi, a royal crown fit for the Queen and a Lego Prince William.
