The Queen of England, Elizabeth II, is turning the big 9-0. Well, next year. But you have to plan ahead if you're a royal -- and she's already got quite the bash lined up.

The shindig, scheduled for May 12-15 for 90 minutes a day, is set to include 1,500 performers and 900 horses.

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead called it a "once in a lifetime event."

There will be a member of the royal family at the festivities every night, but the queen herself will only appear on the final day.

Elizabeth became queen when she was 25 years old, and has held the throne for more than 63 years.
