Queen Elizabeth II is 96-years old on Thursday, April 21, 2022. She is the oldest living monarch, who is also celebrating her Platinum Jubilee this year. The monarch has been in power for seven decades. She will have a quiet birthday celebration at a cottage in their Sandringham estate in Norfolk. She has faced a few health conditions including COVID, with which she was infected, earlier this year, in February.

Although the Queen is having a quiet celebration, there will be gun salutes to commemorate the occasion. The Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, will play Happy Birthday, to honor her on this day. Her family and her close friends will celebrate the day with her.

The royal family Twitter account released a photo of the Queen standing between two fell ponies, who are called Bybeck Katie and Bybeck Nightingale. The Queen has been fond of horses throughout her life. The account states that the photo was taken in March, on the grounds of Windsor Castle, where the Queen has stayed at, after falling ill with COVID. Buckingham Palace also posted a cute picture of Princess Elizabeth, when she was two-years old, in 1928.

Many family members, dignitaries, politicians and world leaders wished the Queen on her 96th birthday. They included Prince Charles and Camilla, Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the leader of the opposition Sir Keir Starmer and many others.

Toymaker Mattel has released a Barbie doll which features a young Elizabeth. It has partly captured a likeness to the Queen. The doll is dressed in an ivory gown. It has a blue sash across with pink and blue ribbons that represent the ones given to her by George VI, her father and George V, her grandfather, according to the toy company.

The doll is also wearing a tiara that was worn by Queen Elizabeth II, when she married Prince Philip. The doll has been released today, April 21, which is her 96th birthday. It was made to commemorate her Platinum Jubilee, another momentous occasion in Queen Elizabeth II’s long and eventful life.
