On 12 June, the British Ambassador to China welcomed more than 800 British and Chinese guests to the Queen's Birthday Party celebrations in the gardens of his Residence in Beijing.
This year marks the 62nd anniversary of HM Queen Elizabeth II. In 2012, the U.K. celebrated her Diamond Jubilee that marked 60 years on the British throne. She is only the second monarch in British history to reach this milestone.
At the event, guests were able to have their photos taken next to the waxwork model of The Queen, which was provided by Madame Tussauds. Madame Tussauds recently opened a flagship store in Beijing.
This year, the event was sponsored by CBI members including BP, Shell, BG Group, and the Royal Bank of Scotland. In addition, CBI member Diageo helped provided drinks at the event.
