Three cheers for the Queen! This month Her Royal Highness enters her tenth decade with cake, candles, a party at Windsor Castle and – we imagine – plenty of gin.

The Royal Mint will be releasing a very limited commemorative £5 coin to celebrate, but there’s plenty of other royal memorabilia on sale to mark her special day too. 

Whether you’re looking for something small to be part of her landmark birthday, or adding to your royal collection, these are pieces that you shouldn’t be without…

Temporary Tattoo

Besotted with Her Majesty but can't quite commit to a permanent inking in her honour?

Artist Lydia Leith created these temporary tattoos for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in 2012.

You can make your own with temporary tattoo paper and a steady hand.

Andy Warhol's Tribute

There are few people who are as iconic as the Queen, but pop artist Andy Warhol was one of them.

His work is instantly recognisible - and highly sought after.

This portrait of the Queen was auctioned off during her Diamond Jubilee celebrations with a guide price of £50,000.

Weren't lucky enough to win this regal lot? Snap up the slightly (cheaper print) instead.

Solar-Powered Waving Queen

Her royal wave is almost as famous as that Launer handbag or her trusty corgis.

So, why not perch this Solar-Powered Waving Queen in a sunny spot and let her do her thing all day?

Vintage Champagne

A celebration wouldn’t be the same without bubbles!

Why not pop the cork on a vintage Champagne bottle that Her Majesty gifted to the Royal Household to mark her golden wedding anniversary in 1997?

And if you want to sip in style, snap up the Royal Household’s 2007 Christmas present, too - Champagne flutes and a tray engraved with the Queen’s ‘ER’ cypher.

Commemorative Coin

If you’re not on the list to receive a free £5 commemorative coin (you need to be turning 90 on the same day as HRH so not many people are), then bag yourself the £20 coin instead.

Cast in fine silver and designed by artist Christopher Hobbs to celebrate the Monarch’s love for flowers, it’s certainly fit for a Queen.

Patriotic Waistcoat

Okay, so traditional royalists might not be fans but why not fly the flag for your patriotic side on April 21st in this oh-so-British Union Flag waistcoat?

Not one for the style shy.

Official China

Looking for a potential family heirloom? The Royal Collection Trust is behind the official birthday china – and although their pieces are pricey, they often increase in value as the years go by.

Plates, pillboxes and tea sets from royal birthdays and anniversaries gone by can fetch hundreds of pounds amongst collectors.

Just make sure that they stay out of the dishwasher.

Souvenir Tea Towel

If you can’t quite stretch to the Royal Collection Trust’s cups and saucers, Emma Bridgewater’s tea towel is a more purse-friendly addition to your birthday tea.

Except, of course, you’ll want to hang it on the wall rather than actually wash up with it.

Mini Majesty

Who wouldn’t want to treat their mantelpiece to a mini porcelain version of the Queen?

Just like the official china, these Royal Doulton figurines depicting iconic moments in Her Majesty’s life should be worth a pretty penny in the future.
