Queen Elizabeth II marked her official birthday with the Trooping of the Colour, the annual military procession and Royal Air Force fly-by, on Saturday, according to BBC News.

While the duchess of Cambridge made her final public appearance before her expected due date in mid-July, Prince Phillip was unable to attend the yearly event after surgery on his abdomen earlier this month.

According to the Telegraph, the queen visited her husband after the event in a meeting that officials described as "as “quiet and private."

Watch highlights from the event in the video above.
