The Sydney Morning Herald puts a wondeful spin on the Queen's English today, as Betty turns four-score years. Prince Andrew reports: "The Queen is a great mother and a great parent, and so too is the Duke of Edinburgh".

For those keeping count, she still has nearly a decade to go before surpassing Queen Victoria's 63+ years on the British throne, although she only has 2 years to go to outlive her great-great-grandmother.

Tonight, Chris and I are going to survey the life of another old bird, the 'diva of din': Florence Foster Jenkins, through Maureen Lipman's portrayal in Glorious! It ends its run at the Duchess Theatre tomorrow.
