Elizabeth II celebrated her 95th birthday this Wednesday, April 21. Our sources, specialists in the royal family, have made some revelations about the sovereign.
A special day. Elizabeth II celebrated her 95th birthday this Wednesday, April 21. The sovereign has, for the first time in 73 years, celebrated her birthday without the love of her life by her side. Indeed, Prince Philip died at the age of 99 on April 9 and his funeral took place on April 17.
According to our source, the Queen of England blew out her candles this Wednesday morning. “She celebrated her birthday at Windsor Castle this morning, outside, in the gardens,” he said first. In front of him is a replica of the queen’s cake, a Chocolate Royal Cake. “She had exactly this one but with crunchy cookies that she loves,” he then clarifies. And about the gifts? our source admits that he can not answer this question precisely but says that Elizabeth II is particularly fond of “the square Hermes, leather gloves for riding and frames,” he concludes.
For this particular day, Elizabeth II could not count on the presence of some members of the royal family. Indeed, Prince Harry left for Los Angeles this Tuesday, April 20, around 13:30, according to information published by the Daily Mail. “It is true that he should have waited for the Queen’s birthday, the message sent was still quite strong,” said our source.
He then nuances his words by recalling that the husband of Meghan Markle was not the only one absent: “I do not protect Prince Harry, far from it, but know that Prince William was not there either, he returned to London, he is in Kensington, in his palace in London, and Prince Charles was not there either, he is in Wales, “he says. Still, according to the royal expert, she would have spent part of the day with her daughter, Prince Anne, and her son, Prince Edward. “There were the daughters-in-law, too. And apparently Eugenie and Beatrice made an appearance,” he concluded.
