The Queen's 95th Birthday

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth is 95 today.  There will be no gun salute to mark the Queen’s birthday as she continues to mourn the loss of her beloved husband of 72 years, the Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

The "Year of celebration" event which included 95th Birthday coins from the royal Mint and collectables, all planned before the death of the Duke, are now understood to have been cancelled.  It is the first time that the Queen's Birthday will not be acknowledged or celebrated in any official form.
