The Queen’s 95th birthday was Wednesday, April 21, 2021.

Twitter was alive with fond memories of her previous birthdays, celebrated in springtime colour.

She has celebrated with family and friends:

In her later years, more public celebrations took place:

May the Queen’s quiet, dutiful leadership be an example to them all for many years to come.
