The Queen's birthplace to receive 100th Green Plaque

The birthplace of the Queen is to be honoured with the Westminster City Council's 100th Green Plaque. Queen Elizabeth was born at Bruton Street in London in 1926. The building is now an office. The Green Plaque is one of the ways the local authority is marking Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee.

The plaques recognise people who have made lasting contributions to society. The first one marked the life of Sir Winston Churchill. Other people whose lives have been highlighted by the honour, include Jane Austen, Oscar Wilde, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Edward Elgar, Jeremy Bentham and the Bee Gees.
