The Mall in London will be turned into a huge street party next year to celebrate the Queen's patronage of more than 600 charities and organisations.

The royal sit-down celebration - also attended by the Duke of Edinburgh, Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry - will include 10,000 guests, and will be the culmination of a weekend of national events to mark the monarch's official 90th birthday.

A service of thanksgiving will be attended by the Queen and Philip at St Paul's Cathedral on Friday, 10 June, with the traditional Trooping of the Colour - also known as the Queen's Birthday Parade - taking place the next day.
