Well, that’s it. Four days of pomp and celebration to commemorate Queen Elizabeth’s birthday. Here are five ways they mixed it up in 2016 to keep her birthday fresh.
Tourists were agape to see the Queen bouncing away in a Bounce House situated in front of the Palace.
Is that the Queen busking for change and pound notes thrown in a guitar case? Indeed it is! Play “Fire and Rain” your Majesty!
She almost couldn’t see over the top of the sidecar she rode in from London to Edinburgh and back. In one day!
The Queen was quickly identified by her username QueenBeeLizzie during her birthday online video game experience playing League of Legends, Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto. Her constant cries of, “Time to die!” peppered her play.
The Queen got major props from skaters and action sports athletes by uploading Snapchat videos while skateboarding through Piccadilly Square. Skillz!

What do you buy when you are an internationally famous movie star and you already own 23 homes in 17 countries?
Many Hollywood celebs are jumping on the latest real estate craze- State Capitol buildings. Cash-strapped states are selling their Capitol buildings to stars looking to stay one step ahead of their rivals.
Here are seven state Capitol buildings owned by movie stars:
Ohio State Capitol Building
Picked up in 2010 for a song, Madonna spends 2 months every year on the upper floor where she has cut her last 3 albums.
Oregon State Capitol
Purchased by Clint Eastwood in 2008 for a potential movie about Oregon trappers who take over Canada in the 1800s. The movie was never made, so he made one wing into a practice putting green.
Missouri State Capitol
Channing Tatum bought the Missouri Capitol in 2009, using portions of it as an art center, theater and marionette training school.
Florida State Capitol
Recently bought by Mila Kunis for tax reasons, she installed a bounce house in the back yard to practice stunts for the movie “Jupiter Ascending.”
New York State Capitol
Now owned by Sean “Diddy” Combs, the New York State Capitol is a famous recording studio. It was the site where he recorded his wildly popular “Shake Ya Tailfeather.”
Massachusetts State Capitol

Alabama State Capitol
The Alabama State Capitol will be the site of the next Real Housewives franchise. “Real Housewives of Montgomery” is going to be shot at the State Capitol which was bought by Andy Cohen in 2012. Since he owns the building, Bravo Network will save money on production and location costs. It is slated to air in 2017.
