Corbyn: is the Queen an Arsenal fan?

Jeremy Corbyn has joked that the Queen could be an Arsenal fan.

The Labour leader made the suggestion in the House of Commons, while wishing her a happy birthday.

He recalled the monarch's cancelled visit to the Arsenal football ground in 2006.

As the Queen could not attend the opening, the entire squad was invited to Buckingham Palace to meet her.

Now we know the Queen is absolutely above politics. She may be above football too but many locals harbour this quite secret view that she's actually privately a Gooner.

Cameron wishes Queen 'health and happiness'

David Cameron has wished the Queen "health and happiness" on her 90th birthday.

The Prime Minister also praised the Queen for her "extraordinary service" and for opening up the Royal Family to the public.

We are uniquely blessed in our country. Her Majesty's service is extraordinary and it is a joy for us all to celebrate, to cherish and to honour.

In this modern Elizabethan era, Her Majesty has led a gentle evolution of our monarchy.

From that first televised Christmas Day message, over three decades before cameras were allowed into this House, to the opening up of the royal palaces and the invention of the royal walkabout, she's brought the monarchy closer to the people while also retaining its dignity.

– DAVID CAMERON
