Queen Elizabeth II was born on April 21, 1926. She celebrated her birthday earlier this year privately with the members of the royal family. According to People, since her birthday also fell on Easter Sunday, she also attended the royal church service with her family.
According to the royal regulations, it is customary to celebrate a sovereign's birthday publically on a day during summer, preferably when the weather is pleasant.
It is believed that the tradition started during the reign of King George II in 1748. While The king was born on October, an annual 'Trooping of the colour' became a celebration dedicated to the king, as well as the armed forces.
