LONDON: It is time for celebrations at the United Kingdom's Buckingham Palace as Queen Elizabeth turned 92 on Saturday.

The Queen and other members of the royal family will attend a star-studded concert at London's Royal Albert Hall on Saturday night, according to the official Royal Family Twitter account.

The queen's birthday is celebrated twice a year, once on April 21, which is her actual birth date and later again in June.

The second birthday was started as a tradition in 1784.

Last year it was celebrated on Saturday, June 17. In 2018, it is scheduled for Saturday, June 9.

The Royal Family's Twitter handle released a couple of pictures of young Queen Elizabeth while paying tribute to her.

Earlier on Friday, it was reported that Queen Elizabeth II had announced his son Prince Charles to become the head of the commonwealth nations, an announcement made at the recently-concluded Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in London.

Further, the Buckingham Palace is also gearing up for the much-awaited royal wedding of Prince Harry and actor Meghan Markle later on May 19.
