Yesterday marked the Queen's 67th year on the throne, but February 6th has always been a bittersweet day for Elizabeth for another reason.
The Queen never celebrates the 6th of February as it was the day that her father, King George VI, passed away in his sleep following a battle with lung cancer.
King George was only 56 when he died back in 1952 and Elizabeth was just 25.
The Queen honours her father's death by staying at Sandringham Estate and reflecting on events privately.
Though the Queen doesn't attend any celebrations for her anniversary, every year soldiers from the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery perform a 41 shot salute in London's Green Park.
