It's a very special day on 21 April, as the Queen turns 92 today! Those sharing a birthday with her majesty include Atonement actor James McAvoy and Four Weddings and a Funeral star Andie MacDowell. Take a look at what they have all been getting up to over the past year as we raise a royal glass to everyone sharing a birthday today.

The Queen turns 92

The Queen has had a very busy year, and recently delighted the nation after appearing alongside Sir David Attenborough on ITV documentary, The Queen's Green Planet. The unlikely pair were named "friendship goals" after viewers watched in awe as they walked around the grounds of the Queen's private gardens. Following the much-anticipated wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on 19 May, the Queen will then celebrate her official birthday on 17 June – the same day as the Trooping of Colour Parade.

James McAvoy turns 39

James McAvoy and Anne-Marie Duff shocked fans last May when they announced they were separating after nine years of marriage. However, the couple have remained on good terms, with the X-Men actor talking out about their split with Mr Porter magazine in January, revealing that they were still amicable and "respectful of each other". James will no doubt be celebrating his special day with his six-year-old son Brendan at his home in North London, who will be sure to help his dad blow out the candles on his cake!

Andie MacDowell turns 60

It's a big birthday for American actress Andie MacDowell as she turns 60. The Four Weddings and a Funeral star often talks about growing older in the public eye, and previously told W magazine: "The beauty myth that I'd like to debunk is that you must be young to be beautiful, age isn’t a detriment and we don’t need to chase youth, we should all embrace every moment of our life." A doting mum to grown-up daughters Margaret, Rainey and son Justin, we are sure that Andie will be thoroughly spoilt over her birthday weekend!
