Birthday cheers for Queen at service.

THE Queen has been treated to an impromptu rendition of the song Happy Birthday, following an Easter Mattins service at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

This year, the monarch's 93rd birthday coincided with Easter Sunday, the most important day in the Christian calendar. The Queen wore a green coat and a matching hat as she was joined by members of her family at St George's Chapel.

Following a service, the Queen was presented with two posies by two little boys, before being treated to the celebratory chorus by crowds.

Royal family members who attended the service included the Princess Royal, her husband Timothy Laurence, Zara and Mike Tindall, Princess Beatrice, the Earl of Wessex, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and the Duke of Sussex.

Harry's pregnant wife Meghan was absent, as was the Duke of Edinburgh who has retired from royal duties.

Meanwhile, reports have claimed Harry and Meghan could be set to move to Africa after the birth of their first child, with a major new international job offer.

The "bespoke" role could involve work on behalf of the Commonwealth and charity engagements, and would help promote the UK.
