The queen turns 95 (again)
Although she technically turned 95 back in April, on Saturday it was the Queen’s ‘official’ royal birthday, a tradition which is said to have dated back to Edward VII who wanted another birthday in June when the weather is better so there could be more public celebrations. We don’t blame him! Double the birthday means double the cake, and who could say no to that?
