The Queen’s Birthday Reception

The Queen’s Official Birthday (sometimes known as "the Queen’s Birthday") is celebrated as a public holiday in several Commonwealth countries—usually Commonwealth Realms, although it is also celebrated in Fiji, now a republic. The word Queen in the name of the celebration is replaced by King when appropriate.

The exact date of the celebration varies from country to country, and it does not usually mark the real birthday of the sovereign (the current monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, was born on 21 April 1926). Most Commonwealth Realms release a Birthday Honours List at this time.
