LONDON – Those attending the celebration party for the 90th birthday of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom will have to pay 150 pounds sterling (about $215) per entry.
The Queen’s grandson Peter Phillips announced on Friday the ticket price and said the party will have a “carnival atmosphere.”
Up to 10,000 guests will fill The Mall, the one-kilometer processional route which runs from Buckingham Palace to Trafalgar Square, on June 12 and the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will be there to hear speeches planned for the occasion, before sitting in the royal box with Prince William and Prince Harry.
Phillips is helping to organize the festival as director of Sports and Entertainment Ltd, an international events agency that had the idea to organize a street celebration.
Most of the profits from the party will be assigned to the hundreds of charities related to the Queen.
