Discovery Education today announced it will broadcast an exclusive virtual field trip for students around the world on June 10 at 9:30 A.M. EST celebrating the 90th birthday of Queen Elizabeth II. Students will be virtually transported to Windsor Castle in England for a unique exploration of The Queen’s life and a special celebration of Britain’s longest reigning monarch.
Happy Birthday, Your Majesty will take students inside the historic royal residence of Windsor Castle, which has served as the family home of British kings and queens for nearly 1,000 years. The interactive broadcast will examine important moments in The Queen’s life and reign, shine a light on her role in the British constitution, and explore Her Majesty’s connection to the Commonwealth, a voluntary association of 53 countries that work together in the common interests of their citizens for development, democracy and peace.
The event will be streamed live on Discovery Education’s website, and schools can register by visiting www.discoveryeducation.co.uk/HMQ90.
