The Queen of England and some of the Commonwealth will be 88 years and 41 days of age tomorrow. as per 21-4-26. Q E 2 was eleven weeks and one day of age when I was born on a Friday which coincided with the start of the Muslim year 1304 or 622 years later in the Christian calendar, The year 622 was when Mohammad took flight from Mecca to Medina, pity he wasn't on M 307. I hope I haven't lost you. it does become confusing to the lesser thinkers, the first rpt, first atom bomb and the launch time of the Apollo 11 Brit S/T 2100 also coincides. my hatching date, but later. 19 and 43 years later.
Since this Royal birthday fiasco began in the 18th century, only QE2/s grand daddy King George V born June 3 1865 on a Saturday became the closest to this imaginary date of the first Monday in June for celebrating the Monarchs birthday.
However there seems to be no ending to the number of occasions that this peculiar ritual takes place, maybe it was conceived with the belief that presento's for the monarch from wealthy name droppers would give a rise to the number of shekels in the Royal piggy bank
What do you reckon? Also interesting go to, Queen's Official Birthday Google.
