Sunday, April 21 marked what would have been Queen Elizabeth II's 98th birthday. It was also the long-reigning British monarch's second birthday since she died in 2022. So, how will the royal family celebrate her big day?

Former royal butler Grant Harrold, who worked for King Charles III and Queen Camilla from 2004 to 2011, shed light on what the royals likely have planned.

"They won't publicly do anything. Privately, I have no doubt they'll raise a toast to her in the evening. I'm sure the day will very much be spent reflecting on the late Queen," Harrold told Slingo, per People.

He continued: "I can almost guarantee that if you were to go to Windsor Castle that day, it's very likely there'll be some flowers on the tomb that have been sent by the family members. Sometimes on royal anniversaries, flowers are sent to royal graves. It's very possible there will be flowers on the tombstone."
