For the first time in decades, the Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth will be spending a birthday without her long-time husband, Prince Philip who passed away "peacefully" in his sleep earlier this month.

The Queen who is turning a great old 95 years, is still in a two-week-long mourning period following her husband's passing which makes her birthday this year an even sadder and somber occasion.
