The Queen is celebrating her 91st birthday but she can't prove her age on her passport.

There were celebrations elsewhere for the Queen, too.

"Once again, allow me to extend congratulations on Your Majesty's birth anniversary, and wish you and members of the Royal Family continued good health and happiness", President Sirleaf urged.

The royal family celebrated her birthday in a social media way, posting messages with the hashtags #HappyBirthdayHerMajesty #Queenat91 and #QueensBirthday while posting pictures and messages. Earlier this year, on February 6, Queen Elizabeth achieved another milestone with her sapphire Jubilee, serving 65 years on the throne.

Edward abdicated and George, supported greatly by the Queen Consort, rose to the occasion, restoring not only stability and affection for the Monarchy, but also great respect.

It's like taking birthday month to a whole new level, and being an actual birthday princess.

The horse's proud owner, Her Majesty The Queen watched on at the races as she enjoys her birthday weekend away from the palace.

But the ever-popular monarch has begun handing over duties to other royals, standing down as patron of 25 bodies at the end of previous year, including the Wimbledon tennis championships.

Prince Harry delighted his grandmother with the gift on her 90th birthday.

She welcomed her first child, Prince Charles, in 1948.
