Why does the Queen have 2 birthdays?
The Queen has two birthday celebrations each year: one on her actual birth date 21st April, and the other on her “official” birthday usually beginning of June. The reason for this is down to the temperamental British weather!!!!! The tradition for monarchs to have two birthdays was started by George II back in 1748. George was born in November and it was felt that it was too cold to host an annual birthday parade at that time.
