Queen Elizabeth II is celebrating her 90th birthday

When the parents of Queen Elizabeth II visited Ballarat in 1927 , they were greeted by Guides at the Arch of Victory where one of the smallest Brownies presented them with a doll dressed in Guide uniform as a gift for the baby Princess Elizabeth.

HM Queen Elizabeth II is the longest reigning British monarch. She has been described as “one of the most important and influential women in the world”.
