Cape Town – Britain's longest reigning monarch celebrates her 93rd birthday on Sunday, 21 April.

To celebrate the occasion, Buckingham Palace shared a montage video of Queen Elizabeth including "a photograph from each decade of the queen’s life."

Followed by the video were posts by the queen's two grandchildren, Princes William and Harry on their respective social media accounts.

The queen typically celebrates two birthdays every year: Her actual birthday on 21 April, which she usually marks privately with her family. And her "official birthday" that usually falls on the second Saturday in June, when she joins the Trooping the Colour military parade in central London.

The monarch is expected to attend a church service at St George's Chapel on Sunday morning to celebrate Easter.
