Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her 86th year with the royal family on Saturday at Windsor Castle. The Queen was born on April 21, 1926, but her birthday is always celebrated officially in June to take advantage of a more lenient meteorology.
This year’s celebration will be June 16, with the traditional military parade “Trooping the Colours”. On Saturday morning, BBC will begin their program in honor of the queen, with the anthem “God Save The Queen”.
“The queen will spend the day with her family and celebrate her birthday in private,” said a spokesman for Buckingham. The Queen is at Windsor Castle, where she usually spends her weekends. Queen Elizabeth II, who enjoys excellent health, attended the Friday afternoon races at Newbury (Berkshire, west of London), where they were competing two of their horses. The queen is known for her passion for riding, like her daughter, Anne and her granddaughter, Zara, who are riding champions.
The queen marks the year with festivities, with the Diamond Jubilee celebration that marks her 60 year reign, as well as the opening of the Olympic Games in London scheduled for July 27. On Wednesday, she will be in Greenwich, on the banks of the Thames, for the inauguration of the “Cutty Sark”, a ship built in 1869. The vessel, which was burned in 2007, has been completely restored and reopened to the public on Thursday.
