Let's first start off with the most important fact: When is the Queen's birthday? If you didn't already know, her birthday is April 21. She will be 92 years old this year.
The Queen technically has two birthdays. The day she was actually born was April 21, and her "official" birthday is the second Saturday in June.
Why the two birthdays? According to BBC, the "official" observance is "to mark a King or Queen's birthday in the UK have often been held on a day that isn't their actual birthday." This has been a tradition for more than 260 years which was started by King George II in 1748.
If you remember last year, the Queen puts on a sensational live concert for her birthday. This year, “it promises to be a spectacular evening of entertainment destined to bring the whole nation together,” said Lewis Carnie, who is Head of BBC Radio 2.
Her birthday will be featuring legendary performers such as Sir Tom Jones, Craig David, Kylie Minogue, Shawn Mendes, Anne Marie, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Sting, and Shaggy, plus more!
The party promises “a fun and vibrant evening of contemporary hits, songs from classic musicals, unique collaborations and stars from around the Commonwealth.”
With that line-up, the extravaganza should be one to remember. If you would like to attend, you can purchase tickets from the “Royal Albert Hall” website. The tickets range from $32 to $83, and there is a limit to four per booking.
The concert will begin at 8 p.m. and broadcast live by BBC One and BBC Radio 2.
