The Queen will celebrate her 87th birthday tomorrow privately, Buckingham Palace has said, with Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh believed to be staying at Windsor Castle.
The monarch's milestone - in a year which in June marks the 60th anniversary of her coronation - will be honoured across the UK with traditional gun salutes fired in celebration.
But as her birthday falls on a Sunday this year the military tributes will be held on Monday.
Queen Elizabeth II has two birthdays - her actual birthday celebrated on April 21 and her official one in June, which is marked with the Trooping the Colour parade.
