More seriously, I would love mentor them so that they enjoy Mathematics, just as I did as a 6-year old child. Everyone can see Mathematics and a game and learning as pure fun " (#Queenat90)
PRINCESS KATE (The Duchess of Cambridge)

On having a daughter, the Duchess of Cambridge said: "It's very special having a new little girl…I feel very, very lucky that George has got a little sister. The Queen was really thrilled that it was a little girl, and I think as soon as we came back here to Kensington she was one of our first visitors here."
PROFESSOR CHRIS IMAFIDON
According to Professor Chris Imafidon, who has lectured at Harvard, Oxford and Cambridge and is chair of the board of ExcellenceinEducation.org.uk "Her Majesty the Queen is the true icon of diligence and dedication to duty. I greatly admire Her Majesty, for her leadership, resilience and her adaptability in using new technology, for example, she sent her first email in 1976, making her one of the most technological of her age, and of any Monarch. She is a true inspiration, and really loves technology, and the application of Mathematics in solving problems". Prof Imafidon, patriarch of Britain's smartest family, congratulated the Queen of being a great grand mother again.
PRINCE WILLIAM (The Duke of Cambridge) ..talking about Her Majesty, as he was growing up, the Duke of Cambridge said: "Growing up, having this figurehead, having this stability above me has been incredible. I have been able to explore, understand, slightly carve my own path. I greatly appreciate and value that protection."
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA - The US president said: "I'm glad to be the very first President of the United States to wish Her Majesty a happy 90th birthday.
For nine decades Her Majesty has been a source of strength and inspiration, not only for the people of Britain, but for millions of people around the world.
And when the Queen hosted Michelle and me at Buckingham Palace we saw the same grace and good humour, that generous human touch, that the people of the United Kingdom have loved for generations.
We often speak of the deep and enduring partnership between our two countries. It is indeed a special relationship.
And Her Majesty has been a vital part of what keeps our relationship so special. The United States is extremely grateful for her steady and energetic leadership and we look forward to Her Majesty's continued service in the years to come. Happy birthday, your Majesty.'
