Queen celebrates 91st birthday

Press Association logoPress Association 4 days ago By Tony Jones, Press Association Court Correspondent

The Queen will celebrate her 91st birthday privately.

After her 90th birthday last year, which saw national festivities held in her honour, her birthday on Friday will be subdued.

But royal gun salutes will still echo across the capital later, fired by the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery and the Honourable Artillery Company.

The Queen is thought to be at Windsor Castle, where she traditionally spends a month-long residence, known as Easter Court.

In Hyde Park at midday, 41 volleys in honour of her birthday will be fired by the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery.

Then an hour later the Honourable Artillery Company will fire a 62-gun salute at the Tower of London - an extra 21 for the City of London.
