When is Queen's Birthday in New Zealand?

The Queen's Birthday holiday is a moveable feast celebrating the birthday of Queen Elizabeth II who is not only Queen of Great Britain but also Queen of New Zealand.

In New Zealand, the Queen's Birthday holiday occurs on the first Monday in June.

Queen Elizabeth's actual birthday was neither in June nor October but in April.

The sovereign's birthday has been officially celebrated since 1748. It is a tradition that if a British monarch has a birthday that doesn't fall in the UK summer months, they can have a second official birthday.

This is because having a summer birthday means a higher chance of good weather during the Trooping the Colour parade for the monarch's birthday.

Elizabeth Alexandra Mary of the House of Windsor was born on April 21st, 1926.

In 1952, after the death of her father, King George VI, Elizabeth succeeded to the throne and was known thereafter as Queen Elizabeth II.

The Queen is the monarch of 16 countries, the United Kingdom and 15 commonwealth realms.
