Queen crisis: How Queen Elizabeth II emerged as ‘unifying symbol’ after ‘tough year’

“The Queen’s official birthday will be marked by a royal salute at 11am and a small contingent of the Welsh Guards and a reduced group of the bands of the Household Division will be involved in the ceremony, which will not have stands for spectators to watch it from.”

A Buckingham Palace spokesman confirmed: “There will be a small, brief, military ceremony at Windsor Castle to mark The Queen’s official birthday.”

Prince Philip will mark his 99th birthday on June 10 and is expected to do so in private with the Queen.

The couple usually spend the summer months in Aberdeenshire at the Queen’s Scottish estate Balmoral.
