Land Rover Frisco is happy to announce that The British Emporium in Grapevine, Texas will be celebrating Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday and her historic landmark as Britain’s longest reigning monarch with two open house events!
The first event will take place on Saturday, April 23 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m., followed by the second event on Saturday, June 11 to coincide with royal celebrations being held in the UK. Refreshments and a sampling of traditional British foods will be served. Both events are free and open to the public.
Many royal celebrations are taking place to celebrate this special year for The Queen. The Queen celebrates two birthdays each year: her actual birthday on April 21 and her official birthday on a Saturday in June. Official birthday celebrations for British monarchs are often held in the summer, when there is a greater likelihood of good weather for the annual Birthday Parade, also known as Trooping the Colour. At this spectacular event, Her Majesty will be joined by other members of the Royal Family as a military parade moves between Buckingham Palace, The Mall and Horseguards’ Parade in London.
According to Sheela Kadam, “The Queen is a beloved and recognized figure around the world. Steadfast in her dedication and duty, she is an inspiration to us all. We join the British community in North Texas in wishing her a happy birthday, pay tribute to her long reign, and offer a place for expatriate Brits and local residents to come and celebrate this very special royal event with us at the most British spot in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.”
For 24 years, The British Emporium has provided British groceries & gifts and hosted community-related events such as royal celebrations, car shows, Doctor Who parties, meet-and-greets with VIP visitors from Great Britain. Owned by Sheela Kadam, the store is a popular gathering place for expat Brits and Anglophiles alike.
