Britain´s Queen Elizabeth II normally celebrates her birthday with a quiet day at Windsor Castle with her husband Prince Philip and publicly with a June ceremony at Buckingham Palace and officially with the "Trooping the Color" ceremony that is traditionally held in June, when the weather is better.
The King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery will fire a 41-gun salute at noon (1100 GMT) in London's Hyde Park to mark the birthday. An hour later, a second salute will be fired from the Tower of London.
In addition to the festivities, this year photographer Marcus Adams is releasing a rare collection of photos at Windsor Castle from when the Queen was a baby.
