Who are they at Queens birthday party

Celebrate on the back burner95th birthday: The Queen stays at home, congratulations are sent via Twitter

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II is staying at Windsor Castle for her 95th birthday this Wednesday. The palace announced this via the short message service Twitter. "This year the Queen is staying at Windsor Castle during a royal period of mourning after the death of the Duke of Edinburgh," said the royal family's official account. One photo showed the monarch smiling with a purple hat - apparently an archive image. As usual, there was no portrait photo of the Queen made especially for the occasion this time.

Elizabeth's husband, Prince Philip, died on April 9 at the age of 99. He was buried in a funeral service at Windsor Castle on Saturday. The Queen had arranged a two-week mourning period for the royals. According to the palace, there were no plans for a public ceremony. The monarch had already given up the traditional cannon shots last year because of the coronavirus pandemic. The British news agency PA had reported that the Queen would celebrate her birthday in a modest setting with some family members.

Today is The Queen’s 95th birthday.

Also delivered via Twitter Prime Minister Boris Johnson his congratulations to the Queen. "I have always had the greatest admiration for Her Majesty and her service to this country and the Commonwealth," said the conservative politician.

On the official accounts of various royal members, such as William and Kate or Prince Charles and Camilla, did not, as usual, send birthday greetings. Rather, Prince Philip is still thought of on Instagram and Twitter.

Even in June, when the monarch's birthday is traditionally celebrated with the colorful "Trooping the Color" parade in central London, there will be nothing to see this year. The spectacle, at the end of which the royals actually always present themselves to the cheering crowd on the balcony of Buckingham Palace, was canceled due to the corona. At most there could be a greatly reduced parade in Windsor.

The British, who were last able to admire a celebration with great royal pomp on the 90th birthday of their queen in 2016, will have to wait a little longer before they can celebrate their queen again. Her 70th anniversary of the throne is approaching next year.
