LONDON - Britain's Queen Elizabeth will step down as patron from a number of national organisations in the coming months after she turned 90 in April, Buckingham Palace said in a statement on Tuesday.

Her patronage of charities such as the NSPCC, Save the Children and Barnardo's, as well as sporting groups like the Lawn Tennis Association and the Rugby Football Union, will be passed onto other members of the royal family in due course.

"Her Majesty will continue to serve as Patron to hundreds of charities and institutions but will now share this work with her family," the statement said.

Elizabeth is the world's longest-reigning living monarch.
