The Queen has a special anniversaries officer who helps send out cards on birthdays and dates such as diamond wedding anniversaries.
In recent years, demand for her 100th birthday telegrams have been soaring because of the ageing population.
The DWP Centenarian team, based in Newcastle upon Tyne, contacts people approaching their 100th, 105th and every subsequent birthday who are in receipt of State Pension.
Those not in receipt of State Benefits can make a direct application to Buckingham Palace to receive a celebration card.
Twitter users were bowled over when they learned the woman in the picture was 100-years-old
