Happy 94th birthday Queen Elizabeth II!

In honour of Her Majesty's special day, we're throwing it back four years to when Slideshow Metamorphosis created this incredible video looking at the 90 years of our Queen's amazing life.

While the world's longest-reigning monarch typically celebrates her birthday in style, this year things will be different.

Royal birthdays and anniversaries are traditionally marked by ceremonial gun salutes, in which blank rounds are fired from various locations across London, but the queen felt it would be inappropriate to allow this to go ahead given the circumstances.

• Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis share sweet "thank you" video to medical workers

She instead plans to celebrate the day over Zoom with the royal family.

According to the Daily Mail, the Queen's children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren all plan to have a video party with her to mark the celebration instead.

How lovely!

Watch above as the Queen morphs from a little girl into a 90-year-old monarch in one minute.
