It’s Queen Elizabeth‘s 94th birthday today, Tuesday.

Although she requested that there be no gun salutes to mark her birthday this year, which is happening for the first time since her 68-year reign due to the coronavirus pandemic. Yet, the royal family still found a way of celebrating the queen in a memorable way.

The official Instagram page of the royal family is throwing it back to the queen’s childhood and letting us in on the sweet memories.

The caption says:

Happy Birthday, Your Majesty! ??
