Why Does The Queen of England Have Two Birthdays?

The present queen of England was born on April 21, 1926, but her official birthday is in June.

In fact, whether England has a king or a queen in charge, and no matter what month they are really born, their official birthday is always celebrated in June. The reason is to give everybody a good time.

June is a lovely warm month with lots of sunshine, even in England. And, since everybody in England likes to celebrate the king or queen’s birthday, they wanted to have it in nice weather.

In 1959, the British Parliament decided that the royal birthday party would always be held in June.
