Let me share you something interesting about the Queen’s birthday: The Queen has two birthdays!
Why does she have two birthdays?
Her real birthday: on 21 April 1926.
Her second birthday: on the second Saturday of June. (The official celebration)
The Queen usually spends her actual birthday with her family and celebration with the public in June.
There is a reason behind. Official celebration to mark a King or Queen’s birthday in the UK royal monarchy have been held on a day that isn’t their real birthday in the past.
The tradition started with the Queen’s great-grandfather, King Edward VII. He was born in November which is not known in the UK for its good weather. However, King Edward VII would like to have a big public celebration and he understood the November wasn’t a good time to do it. And he decided to combine his birthday celebration with an annual military parade in the summer when the Weather would be nice.
The Queen has had a heartbreaking year in 2021. Wishing she the best on her birthday and have a blast in 2022!
