How will the Queen spend her birthday?

Reports say Her Majesty will have a low-key birthday this year.

The special day comes just four days after the funeral of the Duke of Edinburgh at Windsor Castle.

Ingrid Seward, author of Prince Philip Revealed, told Entertainment Daily!: “I think it will be something very low-key. I don’t think her family will let her [not celebrate].

“They’ll say, ‘We must do something for Ma’ma. We must do something to keep her cheerful.’ I suspect it will be family and very close friends of hers.

“It will be low-key now. The world might celebrate more than she does.”

Meanwhile, the Queen received support from the nation last Saturday as she attended Philip’s funeral at St George’s Chapel.

Due to COVID-19 rules, the Monarch had to sit alone during the service and only 30 guests could attend.

Viewers watching the funeral were heartbroken to see the Queen sitting by herself as Philip’s coffin was brought in.

One person said: “The Queen sits alone, to mourn her husband of 73 years. So sad to see.”

Another wrote: “The shot of the Queen sitting alone has broken my heart.”
