The longest-reigning monarch in British history turns 90 Thursday, but Queen Elizabeth II is not planning a major, fireworks-filled celebration to mark the happy occasion.The queen and the royals have endured some low points in the last two decades, particularly around the time of the death of Princess Diana in 1997, but their popularity has rebounded with the marriage of Prince William to Kate Middleton and the arrival of their two children, Prince George -- now third in line to the throne -- and Princess Charlotte.The milestone 90th birthday is a happy occasion, one the queen is willing to acknowledge and share with the nation.She was on vacation in Kenya at the time, having left Britain as a princess and returning as a queen in mourning, greeted at the airport by Winston Churchill, the first of many prime ministers.The queen may be reluctant to make a great fuss over her 90th birthday, but there is little doubt her favorite time of year is approaching.
