The Queen also has an official birthday in June each year, celebrated with the traditional Trooping the Colour, a spectacular military parade.
Queen Elizabeth II marked her 92nd birthday on Saturday with traditional gun salutes and a Commonwealth-themed charity concert featuring Tom Jones, Kylie and Shaggy.
However the celebrations won't be over when the weekend is because she has another birthday around the corner.
"The concert, known as The Queen's Birthday Party, will be attended by HM [Her Majesty] and other Members of the RoyalFamily and will include performances from leading artists from around the Commonwealth", The Palace announced on Twitter earlier this week.
The queen has been the symbolic head of the Commonwealth since her father king George VI's death in 1952, but its leaders agreed on Friday that her son and heir Prince Charles should succeed her.
This will be broadcast live on BBC1 and BBC Radio 2, starting from 8pm and finishing at 9.45pm.
Organisers say the concert, coming at the end of the week when the United Kingdom hosted 53 countries for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, will have a strong Commonwealth flavour. I suspect that it doesn't stretch to Sting and Shaggy. She has also ruled through the USA presidencies of Harry Truman, Richard Nixon, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, and more.
Her real birthday is today, and she was born on this date, April 21, back in 1926.
Special gun salutes are also being staged midday Saturday in central London to mark the occasion.
