Happy 94th Birthday Queen Elizabeth II

Queen Elizabeth II will quietly celebrate her 94th birthday today, as she’s opted to forgo the gun salute that usually marks her birthday after deciding celebrations are not appropriate because of the pandemic.

Her birthday is officially celebrated in June every year. This celebration is referred to as the Trooping the Colour, which was set to take place on June 13.

This year, however, Buckingham Palace have announced that the event will not go ahead due to the outbreak.

In a statement, the Palace said: “In line with Government advice, it has been agreed that The Queen’s Birthday Parade, also known as Trooping the Colour, will not go ahead in its traditional form.

“A number of other options are being considered, in line with relevant guidance.”

Even though we only get pictures from the waist up from this event, I’m always excited about the pomp and splendour of this ceremony, so I will be sad that it will not be taking place this year.

Kensington Palace release this image today of the Queen alongside the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge which was taken at the Chelsea Flower show back in May 2019.

I was mostly likely neck deep in Cannes Film Festival coverage at the time of this event, so I’m posting this Erdem dress look for the first time.

Erdem is known for embracing floral prints in every collection, so it’s no surprise that the Duchess would choose this frock to celebrate the springtime event.

Casteñer Carina espadrilles and Cassandra earrings completed her look.

The Queen was her usual vibrantly-dressed self, also wearing a floral number, finished with a pastel green jacket, pearls, a botanical brooch, white gloves and a contrasting black top handle bag.

Happy birthday Lizzie.

    Would love to see a “best looks” post devoted to HM.

    I like the Queen’s coat, the great tailoring and the colour, also the detail around the buttons so it looks like a flower.

    A pair of yellow flats would have been a nice to go with Catherine’s dress, which I’m undecided about whether I like it. I hope she ditches espadrilles for 2020.
