The Queen usually celebrates two birthdays, the day she was born in April and her official one in June. However, this year, the Trooping the Colour ceremony was canceled amid the global novel coronavirus pandemic.

Normally, during the ceremony, a 21-gun salute is fired by the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery from either Hyde Park or Green Park. Then a 62-gun salute follows at the Tower of London by the Honourable Artillery Company.

Monarch has two birthdays yearly

The only major difference was that Charles included a throwback image of himself as a baby with his mother. The Queen’s official birthday each year is a public celebration, while the one on the real date is a more private affair.

She gets a second birthday in June because in April it’s usually rainy season in the UK and by June its summer.
