The Queen is said to be spending her 95th birthday quietly following the death of her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh. who was beside her for the last 73 years.

Her birthday commenced while still in official royal mourning, but typically it officially happens on June 12.

For the second year in a row, the usual 41 and 21 gun salutes fired in Hyde Park and the Tower of London have been cancelled.


No media release or photos will be taken on the day.

Only those that are close family members will be joining, such as the Duke of York, the Earl, Countess of Wessex and Princess Eugenie.

thisquality understands that there was originally no plan for the empress’ annual celebration from the Royal Family this year due to organising Philip’s 100th birthday that would have took place on June 10.
