Speaking with Grenada High Commissioner Karl Hood, “[Harry] said the best birthday present would be to have a day off, so she could lie about and do nothing,” Hood told reporters.
Acting High Commissioner for Dominica Janet Charles revealed that Harry said the Queen should be taking it easy – but that she wanted to attend the service of thanksgiving for the public. “He said she should really be putting her feet up, but she wanted to be here for the people,” Charles said.
“He said he hopes there’s many more years of that to come.”

During a different reception, one of the Queen’s ladies-in-waiting, Susan Hussey, said of the church service, “I thought it was beautiful, exactly what the Queen would have wanted. Obviously she had a large input into the proceedings. She would have seen it as a religious service, and that has of course been very important throughout her reign.
“She was literally saying thank you to God.”
