About HM Queen's Birthday
The Queen's Official Birthday sometimes known as "the Queen's Birthday" is a public holiday which is celebrated in 53 Commonwealth countries, usually Commonwealth Realms. The Queen's Official Birthday does not usually mark the real birthday of the sovereign. The current monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, was born on 21 April 1926. The exact date of the celebration varies from country to country. Under the Sovereign's Birthday Observance Act of 1952, the birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second is observed as a public holiday not on her birthday, but on the first Monday in June. The word "Queen" in the name of the celebration is replaced by "King" when appropriate. On this day it is customary that the Queen will attend the military parade held at Buckingham Palace. This is called Trooping the Color or Queen’s Birthday Parade. Trooping the Color is a military ceremony performed by regiments of the Commonwealth and the British Army. In the United Kingdom, Trooping the Colour has become closely identified with the Queen's Official Birthday. Trooping the Colour in London is an important national occasion in the Queen’s Birthday Celebrations.
