Queen Elizabeth celebrates 92nd birthday

Queen-92-Birthday-02

Queen Elizabeth II, celebrated her 92nd birthday on Saturday at a Commonwealth-themed charity concert featuring Tom Jones, Kylie Minogue and Shaggy.

The highlight of the event was that the monarch took to the stage herself at the end of the show at the Royal Albert Hall, where her son and heir Prince Charles led the crowd in a birthday "hip hip hip hooray". Her grandsons Prince William and Prince Harry, accompanied by his fiancee Meghan Markle, also watched performances by stars from around the Commonwealth, the 53-nation grouping which held its summit in London this week. The queen usually celebrates her birthday in private, saving the pomp for her official birthday in June, but the concert was held in aid of a new youth charity, The Queen's Commonwealth Trust, reports said.

Earlier, the queen's birthday was marked by a traditional gun salute in Hyde Park and the Tower of London, while at Windsor Castle, the band played "Happy Birthday" during the changing of the guard.
