It's her majesty's 90th birthday today, and to celebrate this huge milestone we'd thought we share some facts with you that perhaps you didn't know about her Royal Highness during her reign as Queen. 
Tea for two 

Throughout her majesty's reign there have been 10 different prime ministers, some of these including Winston Churchill, Margaret Thatcher, Tony Blair and now of course, David Cameron. During this time, she has met with every prime minister during their reign every Tuesday, whilst she's in London, for Tea and a chat on current affairs and other royal and parliamentary chit-chat .   

The Queen has two birthdays! 

We all wished and asked our parents if we could have more than one birthday a year but we were always told we couldn't. However, the Queen can do what she wishes; she is the Queen after all. Her real Birthday is today (21st April) where she enjoys a private celebration. But there is a ls a more public event in June called Trooping of the Colours.
Over the years the queen has received some rather strange gifts, from animals that are now cared for by the London Zoo to a Pineapple, a box of snail shells, 7kg of prawns and some eggs. How bizarre! 

That's a lot of Birthday Cards!  

During her reign the Queen has sent approximately 110,000 telegrams to centurions and around 520,000 telegrams to couples celebrating their diamond wedding anniversary. In 1917, the Queen sent 24 telegrams but in 2007, the figure was recorded to have risen to 8,439, now that's a lot of cards! 

She's a popular lady!

Every year the Queen receives around 1,000 invitations! It would be impossible for the queen to accept all these invitations, considering she is only human! Instead, other members of the Royal Family can be called upon to attend. In your application you can state which royal you'd prefer to have visit. The royal family receives and answers to 100,000 letters every year and as a whole undertakes 2,000 official engagements, they're a busy bunch!

No queuing at passport control! 

The Queen doesn't require a British passport or a driving license! Because passports are issued in the name of her majesty, it would be a bit strange, to allow herself to issue one for herself, wouldn't it? 

Making Art History 

The image of The Queen we're all so familiar with on the postage stamp is the most reproduced work of art in history! Arnold Machin designed the image of her majesty in 1967 and since then has remained unchanged and it has been produced over 200 billion times! Imagine if an artwork of you was produced that many times! 
Back in the day not many people would have seen their King or Queen, therefore, having the monarch's head on the coin or note was useful way to spread the likeness, especially considering they din't have TVs back then! So far, we've seen there have been four representations of the Queen circulating on the coin. 

The hip Queen! 

The royal family feel like an old relic from way back in the past, at times, but they are actually embracing technology! Her Majesty launched Buckingham Palaces' first official website in 1997 and the Queen even sent her first email back in 1976! I wonder if her email address was as embarrassing as ours. 

Everyone here want's to wish her Majesty a belated 90th Birthday! Long live the Queen!

The Grand National is an annual horse racing event that's held at Aintree racecourse in Liverpool. Every year millions of punters will place bets in hope that their horse makes it around the racecourse and finishes in first. In celebration of this historic sporting event, we thought we'd show you 8 facts about the historic horse race that perhaps you didn't know. 

The First Grand National 

The first Grand National was officially held in 1839 but it started two hours late after confusion over weighing procedures. Eventually the race started and the winner was won by 5-1 favourite Lottery and was ridden by Jem Mason, who was know for his exquisite dress sense.

The Obstacles 

The first 5 Grand Nationals included one jump that was a stone wall, where the water jump now stands. The Fence "Becher's Brook" earned its name when a top jockey, Captain Martin Becher, fell off his horse and had to take shelter in the brook. The tallest fence on the course is named "The Chair" and it stands at a mighty 5ft 2in, and is proceeded by a 6 foot wide ditch! 

That's a lot of Alcohol! 

It's been said that there will be roughly 77,000 people at Aintree to watch the Grand National. To cater for all these punters, there's over 80 bars at the venue and it's believed they will consume a quarter of a million pints of beer, 38,000 and 5,000 cocktails. On top of all that, punters will also enjoy 75,00 cups of tea and coffee, as well as 3,500 rumps of lamb! 

The Least and Most Finishers

The greatest number of horses to finish the Grand National was in 1984 where 23 horses finished the race, and was won by Hallo Dandy and was ridden by Neale Doughty. The least amount of finishers was in 1928 where just 2 horses finished the race! The winning horse was Tipperary Tim who was a 100-1 outsider and it was said the jockey riding the horse heard a friend shout " Billy Boy, you'll only win if all the others fall". How right he was.

Moiffa, The Disappearing Winner

The winner of the 1904 Grand National, Moiffa, had an unusual build up to his eventual success at Aintree. A year before the Grand National the horse had disappeared. It was thought that he went down with the ship that was carrying him from New Zealand to Liverpool and had to swim 50 miles to shore! However the horse was picked up from an uninhabited island by a local fishing boat and returned back to the mainland, where his trainer reclaimed him and he went on to win the National! Some say that it was a different horse arriving from New Zealand that was stranded and won but we'd like to believe the legend! 

The Youngest and Oldest Winners

The youngest winning jockey to win the Grand National is Bruce Hobbs who won it in 1938 at the age of just 17 years of age! The oldest winning jockey is Dick Saunders, who was 47 years old in 1982. 

An Unwanted Record

Richard Johnson holds the record for the most rides in the Grand National without a win, a record he's probably not too happy to hold. His best effort was on What's Up Boy's where he finished in second place. This year it'll be his 20th attempt for a win and we all hope he finally breaks his duck.

Red Rum

The horse to win the most Grand Nationals is Red Rum. The record-breaking horse won the National three times, in 1973. 9174 and 1977. He also finished in second place in both 1975 and 1976. Red Rum is therefore rightly buried at the winning post at Aintree. The perfect resting place wouldn't you agree? 

Everyone here at Gadget Inspector hopes you enjoy the race and please gamble responsibly!
What a year 2015 was! It's fair to say we had plenty to celebrate. From an eclipse to finding out that Kanye West is running for president in 2020, it's been pretty crazy overall. Sure we may have had to deal with lunacy of Donald Trump's presidential campaign, but we also got to welcome the triumphant return of Han Solo and Chewbacca to our cinema screens! 

As we've just started a brand new year, we thought it would be appropriate to take a look back at the weird and wonderful moments that made 2015 so great!

Is it Blue and Black or White and Gold? 

In early 2015, we saw the formidable Dress debate unfold across social media. Was it black and blue or white and gold? No one could decide, and it had everyone debating from your postman, to the guy that sells the apples down the market! It even had Kimye arguing over it, which well and truly proved that it had taken the world by storm! Thankfully the owner of the dress came forward and confirmed that was it is in fact black and blue (see, told you so)!

Space Accomplishments 

It was a great year for space, with plenty of interesting activity and new discoveries in 2015! There was a Total Lunar Eclipse in September, which produced a stunning red colour in the early hours UK time, as well as a Total Solar Eclipse in March (which we all got excited for but could barely see in the UK thanks to the clouds!). We also discovered that flowing water exists on Mars, and with flowing water comes life! But before you get all excited and starting packing your bags to visit, we also discovered that the atmosphere isn't locked inside the rocks, but instead has been lost in space! We do have some good news though, astronauts also discovered that you can now grow lettuce in space! Does that mean we could be seeing space allotments in the near future? Who knows? We're just hoping it doesn't taste like rocket. (Sorry for the terrible space pun).

Unusual Presidential Candidates

Strange, potential candidates for the role of future US president was something of a theme in 2015. We found out that businessman Donald Trump would be attempting to represent the Republican party, giving us plenty of controversy to follow in the news! Kanye West also raised everyone's eyebrows at the 2015 VMA's, by announcing that he would be running for president in 2020. Could this be the first steps of Kanye's complete world domination?

Top Sporting Moments 

There were plenty of great sporting moments in 2015 but we managed to pick a couple of our favourites. We'll start with Japan shocking the entire world by beating South Africa in their first game of the World Cup, something that no-one thought would ever be possible. New Zealand also became the first team to retain the World Cup in the history of the tournament, which isn't quite as surprising considering their excellent form (we only thought that they would have done it sooner)! There was also some great moments in athletics, with Jessica Ennis-Hill winning the world championship after not competing for 3 years prior to the event due to injury and pregnancy, what a comeback! Greg Rutherford also became only the fifth ever Briton to hold all four major athletics titles at the same time! In tennis, Great Britain also won the Davis cup for the first time since 1936, with Andy Murray achieving the greatest ever individual run in the competition's history, by winning 11 games! There really was no stopping the Scotsman! 

We say 'Hello' to Adele Again 

In 2015 we saw the return of the hit machine, Adele, with her number 1 single 'Hello' and the release of her new album, 25. Both of these absolutely smashed the records almost straight away, making this the absolute comeback of the year! On another note, although she is still a number 1 hit machine, we also found out that she still uses a flip phone! 2015 was also a great year for Drake, who managed to equal the Beatles' 50 year record, with 14 singles in the Hot 100 chart. This was later beaten by Justin Bieber,  who had 17 hit singles in the hot 100! Another memorable moment for Drake in 2015 was the release of the music video for his single 'Hotline Bling', which went viral due to his *ehem* questionable dance moves. Let's face it, even your dad wouldn't try to pull those off, but you know what they say; "Any publicity, is good publicity", right?

Bruce becomes Caitlyn 

In 2015 we witnessed Bruce Jenner transform into Caitlyn Jenner. Before making the official transition and changing her name, Jenner gave one last interview on 20/20 with Diane Sawyer, which managed to get 20.7 million viewers! This made it television's highest-ever rated news magazine telecast, among adults 18–49 and adults 25–54. Jenner's emergent identity was then revealed in a Vanity Fair interview, where she featured on the front cover. She later went on to become American GLAMOUR's 'Woman of the Year, and set setting a Guinness World Record for amassing one million Twitter followers in just four hours and three minutes!

Spoilers lie ahead! 

2015 was a great year for TV, with plenty of great moments that left us speechless. We had to say some sad farewells, from final episodes to character deaths, with all sorts of emotions taking hold of us! We'll start with season five of Game of Thrones, which had plenty of moments that left fans with their jaws wide open (even those who had read the books!). One of this season's highlights was the episode 'Hardhome', which left Jon Snow and all the GoT fans feeling rather hopeless with regards to the White Walker situation.. This season also left us on a major cliffhanger,  as we wondered whether or not Jon Snow was really gone for good (FYI he's not). We also had to say a sad farewell to some great shows, including Parks and Recreation, which left us with the closing the images of cast and crew members in an adorable group hug. We also had to say a sad farewell to Mad Men and Parenthood, as well as Brian Fuller's Hannibal (which we hope will return in the not-too-distant future). 

Han Solo and Chewbacca Return! 

2015 was a great year for movies, and there is only one place to start, Star Wars! We saw the much anticipated return of Han Solo and Chewbacca, along with many other new and familiar faces.This long awaited movie didn't disappoint fans, absolutely smashing box office records thanks to a hoard of repeated viewings. This wasn't the only dose of childhood nostalgia that we got to experience, however, as we also got a brand new instalment of the Jurassic Park franchise in Jurassic World!  We also got to see what might prove to be Daniel Craig's last shot at Bond, in new film Spectre

There were plenty of great moments last year, and we're hoping there will be plenty more in 2016!
