Birthday of H.H. The Pope and H.M. The Queen of Denmark, 2010 (plus our own Queen's birthday today)

I was pleasantly surprised to discover that last Friday, April 16., was the birthday of both H.H. The Pope and H.M. The Queen of Denmark, their eighty-third and seventieth, respectively. As far as I know there were no extraordinary celebrations for His Holiness, while there was a busy schedule of special events for Her Majesty's milestone of the big seven-oh (go hither for more information about the latter celebrations, and hither for a magnificent, interactive panorama of the highlight of those celebrations, the Gala Performance at The Royal Theatre, April 15., 2010). And I see in today's edition of The Sydney Morning Herald that today is the eighty-fourth birthday (natural, rather than official, birthday, that is) of our own (civic) Sovereign, H.M The Queen. Long may all three continue gloriously to reign, their respective shortcomings notwithstanding.
