For the first time during her reign, the Queen is marking her birthday without her husband.

Celebrations for Her Majesty’s 95th birthday on April 21 will be scaled back as it falls during the two-week period of royal mourning for the late Duke of Edinburgh.

Members of the monarchy have been supporting the Queen as she grieves for Prince Philip, and some of her family are expected to be with her at Windsor Castle.

The Queen is also likely to seek comfort in her new puppies, a corgi called Muick and a dorgi named Fergus, according to a royal expert.

No photograph to mark the milestone is expected to be released, as the period of royal mourning officially lasts until Friday.

Instead, we’ve rounded up our favourite pictures and memories of Her Majesty glowing on visits across south London.
