British Monarch Queen Elizabeth II, who recently turned 94, was celebrated with a private clip detailing a few of her childhood moments on the Instagram page of the Royal family.


Queen Elizabeth II marks yet another remarkable milestone with her new age. Amid the ongoing health crisis, the crown has proven to be healthy, hale, and hearty. 

So it's no surprise that the Royal family deemed it fit to pour out their unwavering support and honor her on the day of her birth. In the clip uploaded, fans of the royal page could see never-before-seen intricacies of the Queen's life.

Her childhood with her sister Princess Margaret was detailed in the post; both girls appeared to have enjoyed a happy and close-knit relationship, as they played in the palace and got acquainted with their surroundings.

While the tribute focused on honoring the celebrant, the royal page extended a heart of gratitude to well-wishers and went on to celebrate those who share the same birthday as the Queen. According to the post:

"Thank you for your messages today on the Queen's 94th birthday…To those of you celebrating your birthdays at home...we send you many happy returns."


Numerous comments bearing goodwill and admiration for the Queen flooded the comment section. The Queen's son, Prince Charles, also honored his mother in an emotional post that featured shots from his childhood with her until the present.

Other cancellations of occurrences include the celebration of the Queen's second birthday.


Even though the Queen decided to self isolate with her husband, Prince Philip, in the Windsor castle following the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, she has welcomed the constant love from fans and family. She explained that with the way things are, it is essential to celebrate privately.

Her grandson, Prince William, and his wife, Kate Middleton, have equally extended their heartfelt wishes to the crown in a touching post. From the palace, however, a credible source hinted that:

"Any calls, video calls, etc with the family will be kept so...There will be no social media posts...there will be no gun salutes...We believe that this may be the first time in her reign."


Emphasis is laid on how crucial it is to observe privacy, and while the usual gun salutes won't be sounded, the bells of the Westminster Abbey Church won't chime for the Queen either.

Other cancellations of occurrences include the celebration of the Queen's second birthday, which holds every June annually. The Trooping the Color, a tradition initiated by King George II, won't take place following the current global health crisis.

The crown has thoughtfully worked out measures to foster self-isolation and social distancing, to help curb the spread of the COVID-19 which has claimed the lives of thousands of Britons.
