The world’s oldest and longest-reigning living monarch, Britain’s Queen Elizabeth, has celebrated her 92nd birthday.
And she’s done so in style.
The event, which took place at London’s Albert Hall on Saturday night, was a break in tradition for the Queen who usually spends her birthday privately with little public celebration.
Aussie icon Kylie Minogue delivered a stunning performance. So too did many other international acts, including Sting, Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Shaggy, with Queen Elizabeth watching on from the royal box, flanked by her family.
At the end of the night Queen Elizabeth joined the stage with her son, Prince Charles.
He joked that she could not have predicted in 1948, when Charles was born, decades later a 92-year-old Queen would be sharing a stage with her 70-year-old son.
Charles then led a round of cheers from members of the audience. The Queen acknowledged them with a smile and her trademark royal wave.
Queen Elizabeth was born on April 21, 1926, and became Queen in 1952 at the age of 25, meaning she has now reigned for more than 66 years.
