The Queen of England, full name Elizabeth Alexandra Mary, turns 94 next Tuesday.

According to MSN Europe,  the Queen did not want gun salutes to mark her birthday as it would be “inappropriate in the current circumstances”. Buckingham Palace said the Queen did not want any special measures in place to allow gun salutes when she turns 94 on Tuesday.

It is believed that this would be the first time in her reign that gun salutes are absent from her birthday celebrations.

It has already been announced that there will be no Trooping Of The Colour (the Queen’s annual birthday parade in June).
