Queen Elizabeth marks 95th birthday, days after husband s funeral

Britain s Queen Elizabeth, the world s oldest monarch, turns 95 on Wednesday (April 21), but there will be no public celebrations of an occasion that comes just days after she bade a sad farewell to her husband of seven decades at his funeral. Prince Philip, whom Elizabeth married in 1947, died on April 9 at the age of 99. The royals paid their final respects to the family s patriarch at his funeral on Saturday at Windsor Castle. Because of Covid-19 restrictions, the queen sat alone during the sombre service for Philip, who she had described as her strength and stay . Elizabeth, who is also the world s longest-reigning monarch, will be at the castle for her birthday, which traditionally passes off with little or no ceremony.
