Don’t be afraid to post fun facts surrounding the Queen’s rule in England!
o For example: According to Royal.UK, the Queen was born on April 21st and celebrates privately with several gun salutes.
o Her public birthday is held on the second Saturday of June. So why the separation? BBC states, “The double birthday tradition was started more than 250 years ago by King George II in 1748.” This is due to weather complications. King George II’s birthday was in November when a public and outdoor event could probably not be hosted. So, instead, he decided to “combine it with an annual military parade in the summer,” to ensure good weather for an extravagant and public birthday party.
