The Queen all smiles on Prince Andrew’s 60th birthday


While Prince Andrew celebrates his 60th birthday on Wednesday morning with his ex-wife and two daughters, his mother the Queen is busy at the opening of the new premises of the Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospitals in London.

The state-of-the-art facility brings the Royal National Throat Nose and Ear Hospital and the Eastman Dental Hospital together under one roof.

The hospitals are part of University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the two institutions have combined histories of more than 230 years of innovation in healthcare. Both undertake groundbreaking research and develop new ways to treat rare and complex dental, ear, nose, throat, hearing and balance conditions. 

HRH, the Queen for this Royal duty was spotted in a purple coat and matching hat to see first-hand the work being carried out across the facility’s specialities and visit the adult dental treatment floor, the paediatric treatment floor and the auditory implant centre. She also had a meeting with patients who have benefited from the hospitals’ care and meet staff, including dental and ENT clinicians, children and families taking part in creative health play sessions, which are used to prepare young patients for treatment.

Thankfully the reigning monarch and mother took the time to celebrate her son the Duke of York on his  60th birthday. The Royal Family shared a message on their Instagram account alongside a photo with caption that reads: “On this day in 1960, Prince Andrew was born at Buckingham Palace, the first child born to a reigning monarch for 103 years. Happy Birthday to The Duke of York.”
