Speaking earlier today the Governor said  On the occasion of Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th Birthday, I am very honoured to have been the Inspecting Officer for today’s 21-gun salute.

 "This kicks off a series of events in Gibraltar celebrating Her Majesty’s Birthday, leading up to and beyond the celebration of Her Majesty’s Official Birthday in June.  This includes this evening’s lighting of a beacon, and of course the Queen’s Birthday Parade and Garden Party on 9th June.
