Barlow To Organise Queen's 85th Birthday?
Singer GARY BARLOW is to organise British monarch QUEEN ELIZABETH II's 85th birthday party and the 2012 Diamond Jubilee celebrations after royal aides requested his help, according to a U.K. report.
The Take That star has been asked to lead plans for the bash after successfully arranging several concerts for charity Children In Need at London's Royal Albert Hall and organising a celebrity climb up Mount Kilimanjaro for Comic Relief.
Barlow has already had a meeting with aides to the Queen, who turns the landmark age next April (11), to discuss how to mark her birthday, as well as another bash the following year (12) to celebrate her 60 years on the throne, reports Britain's The Sun.
A source tells the publication, "Gary's got the power to pull in some big names and ensure it's a party to match the occasion. The timing means he can get the ball rolling early and start ringing his contacts."
