Today is The Queen’s 95th birthday. Her Majesty was born on 21 April 1926 at 17 Bruton Street in London, the first child of The Duke and Duchess of York.

This year The Queen remains at Windsor Castle during a period of Royal Mourning following the death of The Duke of Edinburgh.

The Queen released a statement earlier today thanking people across the world who have sent tributes and messages of condolence following the death of The Duke of Edinburgh.

Her Majesty wrote:

“I have, on the occasion of my 95th birthday today, received many messages of good wishes, which I very much appreciate.

“While as a family we are in a period of great sadness, it has been a comfort to us all to see and to hear the tributes paid to my husband, from those within the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth and around the world.

“My family and I would like to thank you all for the support and kindness shown to us in recent days. We have been deeply touched, and continue to be reminded that Philip had such an extraordinary impact on countless people throughout his life.”

The touching message is signed, “ELIZABETH R.”
