Winnie-the-Pooh meets Prince George (and Queen Elizabeth too!) in new book

It took them only nine decades to meet, but the encounter was worth the wait.

Queen Elizabeth meets Winnie the Pooh in a new book celebrating the pair’s milestone birthdays: both turned 90 this year.

In "Winnie-the-Pooh And The Royal Birthday," Disney celebrates Queen Elizabeth's 90th birthday and Winnie-the-Pooh's 90th anniversary.

In “Winnie-The-Pooh and the Royal Birthday,” the newest story featuring one of the most iconic children’s characters, the beloved Pooh travels from the Hundred Acre Wood to London to deliver a birthday poem to the monarch. He is joined on the journey by his friends Christopher Robin, Eeyore and Piglet.

Disney, which owns the rights to the childhood series, released the new book "to celebrate 90 years of two much-loved British icons," it said in a news release. An audio version of the story is narrated by Oscar-winning actor Jim Broadbent.

Author A.A. Milne created the Winnie-the-Pooh stories, basing them on a stuffed animal he bought for his son, Christopher. Milne's 1926 book, "Teddy Bear and the Other Songs from When We Were Very Young," was also dedicated to a then-Princess Elizabeth upon her birth.
