The whole world is celebrating Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday, from the U.K. to the U.S. to the Hundred Acre Woods to Legoland.
The Windsor, U.K. location of the LEGO-themed amusement park threw Queen Elizabeth a miniature street party fit, appropriately enough, for a Queen, set up in front of the park’s perfect plastic recreation of Buckingham Palace, built using 35,000 LEGO bricks.
The party was made entirely of LEGO, and it took over 30,000 of them to create the festive street scene complete with a feast, British flags, bunting, and 600 attendees. They even included a mini version of the Royal Family, including Prince Charles, The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Harry and Princesses Anne, Beatrice and Eugenie, and, naturally, the Queen’s corgis. (Hard to tell if any of the LEGO critters are dorgis, the Queen’s beloved Corgi dachshund hybrid).
The party took Legoland’s model making team 650 hours to build. The Queen will celebrate her birthday on June 12, but the Lego birthday party will continue to be on display at Legoland Windsor until November.
