No gun salutes for Queen’s 94th birthday

The Queen’s birthday will not be marked by gun salutes in what is believed to be a first due to the coronavirus crisis. The monarch turns 94 on Tuesday but she is said to have decided gun salutes would not be “appropriate” at this time. A Buckingham Palace source said her birthday will not be marked in any special way, adding that any phone or video calls she has with family will be kept private.
