The Queen’s Birthday 2019.
The Queen was born on the 21st April 1926, and her Birthday is therefore the 21st April, so why is her birthday on a different day?
In Queensland, her birthday in 2019 is celebrated today, 7th October 2019 with a public holiday.
In most of the UK it is usually celebrated on the second Saturday in June, but without a public holiday. In 2019 it was on the 8th June, and in 2020 it will be the 13th June.
In Australia, every state has a public holiday for the Queens Birthday, with most States having the 10th June 2019 (8th June 2020) as the date to celebrate her Birthday with a holiday.
There are two exceptions to this:
Queensland has chosen 7th October 2019 (5th October 2020) as the holiday date.
Western Australia has chosen 30th September 2019 (28th September 2020) as their holiday.
