The Queen's actual birthday is April 21.

And his older cousin, Savannah Phillips, seven, was even forced to put her hand over his mouth to keep him silent in hilarious footage which aired on screens all around the country.

The Queen looked on as the celebrations for her birthday took place on the Mall in central London. His absence had nothing to do with his recent hip surgery. The couple got hitched in a dreamy ceremony on May 19, 2018, at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, bringing alive the magic of fairytales for many. He will celebrate his 97th birthday Sunday.

Of course, the littlest royals Prince George and Princess Charlotte also made an appearence on the Buckingham Palace balcony to watch the traditional RAF fly-past.

Princess Kate, who has been on maternity leave since giving birth to Prince Louis, left the newborn home.

This marks George's fourth time at the annual event, while this is three-year-old Charlotte's third appearance.

Waving to crowds alongside the Duchess of Cornwall, Kate looked radiant in a frock from one of her favourite designers, Alexander McQueen. At just six weeks old, Little Louis also had to miss out on Uncle Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle last month. Such was the case during Meghan and Harry's return to Buckingham Palace, when she could be seen trying to keep her hair in some semblance of order.

It's Queen Elizabeth II's special day!
