King vetoes major public events for his 75th birthday: Charles decides there have already been enough recent big royal occasions and wants his own celebrations to be 'minimal' and 'family orientated'
The monarch, who will turn 75 in November, has decided he doesn't want a big fuss for his birthday after more than a year of big royal events, according to royal insiders. In the last 14 months, the nation has celebrated Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee, mourned her death with a state funeral, celebrated King Charles and Queen Camilla's Coronation, and watched the monarch take part in his first ever Trooping the Colour ceremony (right). Instead of a big public event, insiders have said the King is more likely to focus on carrying out engagements while celebrating privately with his family - and a nice cake as well.
