Today the Queen is 89. Born the same year as David Attenborough, Fidel Castro, Hugh Heffner, Mel Brooks, George Martin and Chuck Berry… Who weren't invited to her birthday party this evening - the annual networking event organised by British embassies around the world. I've been to a fair few in my time abroad but this was my first in Mexico. And it was fun, attended by 1,200 people who all seemed to have a good time. Music, food, wine and everyone looking their best.
