Thousands sing 'Happy Birthday' to Queen Elizabeth

While Prince William and Kate Middleton are preparing for the birth of the third child, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, whose nose wedding (before the wedding less than a month!), as representatives of the Royal family took all the responsibility for performing various official duties.

The Queen and members of the royal family are guests of honour at the celebration, which is being billed as The Queen's Birthday Party.

Britain's Queen Elizabeth attended a star-studded special concert Saturday as the world's oldest and longest-reigning living monarch celebrated her 92nd birthday.

Markle may not be an official member of the British royal family just yet - she is set to Wednesday Prince Harry May 19 - but she's already filled her schedule with a slew of royal engagements.

"Your Majesty, Happy Birthday", said Harry, who will be president of the trust.

Charles got an enthusiastic response when he introduced her as: "Your majesty, mummy".

The queen has been the symbolic head of the Commonwealth since her father king George VI's death in 1952, but its leaders agreed on Friday that Prince Charles would eventually succeed her.

Meghan Markle was caught on Saturday looking rather bemused after Shaggy performed his sex reggae number Mr Bombastic for The Queen - although we can't blame her.

Earlier in the day, honorary gun salutes were staged at Hyde Park, the Tower of London, a castle in Wales and the town of Windsor to mark the occasion. Artists like Tom Jones, Kylie Minogue, Sting and Shaggy, Shawn Mendes, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Anne-Marie, Craig David and Donel Mangena took the stage in celebration of the queen.

During the meeting, the Queen made a remark about her preferred successor as the head of the Commonwealth.

The Queen also has an "official" birthday in June, which is marked with a large parade of soldiers through central London, known as Trooping the Colour.
