How old is the Queen and why does she have two birthdays?

The Queen turned 95 on April 21.

The tradition of the British monarch of celebrating two birthdays goes back to 1748.

It first happened during the reign of King George II.

Since his birthday was in November, the weather was not suitable for a large public celebration.

So he decided to combine it with an annual military parade in the summer when hopefully the weather would be nice.
