Queen ‘deeply touched’ by birthday wishes


The Queenmarke­d her 95th birthday yesterday by thanking wellwisher­s and saying that shewas ‘‘deeply touched’’ by their support after the death of the Duke of Edinburgh. She spent the day quietly at Windsor Castle, where shewas expected to be visited by members of her family. The Duke of Sussexwas not among them, however, because he has already returned to California. ‘‘We have been deeply touched, and continue to be reminded that Philip had such an extraordin­ary impact on countless people throughout his life,’’ she wrote.
