I should add that at the celebration of the birthday of the Queen of great Britain was not the only 97-year-old Prince Philip – the husband of Elizabeth II, which is annually attended the great event. We can assume that he is not feeling too good, which was forced to miss the celebration.

Why Elizabeth II twice birthday?
The story of a double celebration dates back to 1748 and has its explanation. King George II has sought to combine a military parade carrying the flag on the occasion of his birthday, but in November people did not want to freeze, so refused to come to the event. This has to take into account subsequent British monarchs. Therefore Elizabeth II chose the second Saturday of June for magnificent parade, which attracts the entire Royal family and people from around the world.
