Queen Elizabeth II

On 21st April 2021, Queen Elizabeth II becomes the world’s very first monarch to celebrate a 95th Birthday – a remarkable accomplishment which will be commemorated across the United Kingdom, Commonwealth, and further afield. Born in London’s Mayfair in 1926 to the Duke and Duchess of York, Her Majesty never initially expected to become sovereign until her uncle’s surprising abdication. She was crowned in 1952, with her official Coronation taking place in June the following year at London’s iconic Westminster Abbey, and has since become our longest and oldest-serving Head of State in history.
This year, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrate their 10th Wedding Anniversary! On 29th April 2011, Catherine Middleton and His Royal Highness Prince William, our future king, married at Westminster Abbey in a magnificent ceremony attended by 1,900 notable guests. A fairy tale wedding which was viewed by over a quarter of the entire globe’s population, this momentous occasion was also celebrated with an official public holiday in the United Kingdom. Since their wedding, the popular couple have completed numerous royal tours across the world, and have three children together; Prince George, third in line to the throne, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
In 1952, Her Majesty the Queen acceded the throne following the death of her father, George VI. Next year, she will become the very first British monarch to mark a Platinum Jubilee after 70 full years of service! This incredible achievement is set to be celebrated globally, with an extra bank holiday in the United Kingdom, a spectacular festival, and a special ‘Platinum Jubilee’ medal awarded to public service workers. Fittingly, as our sovereign is well-known for her love of nature, the royal event will also be marked with the ‘Queen’s Green Canopy’, where members of the public will be encouraged to plant a tree in honour of the occasion, benefitting the environment and local communities.
