Queen’s Birthday 2018

Sir Tom Jones started off the event with It's Not Unusual before Her Majesty took up her seat in the Royal box at London's Royal Albert Hall.

A Royal Family statement on its Twitter page read: "As we celebrate your 92nd birthday this evening and in recognition of your incredible life of service, I am delighted to say that the Queen's Commonwealth Trust has now been launched to support young leaders around the Commonwealth".

This genre-defying, sexy Stiggy duo was deemed worthy enough to perform at Queen Elizabeth's 92nd birthday party in London this weekend, where they jammed out to their sultry track "Don't Make Me Wait", much to the confusion of some attendees.

At the event, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepped out in matching blue ensembles.

The audience at Royal Albert Hall got a rare treat Saturday - the chance to sing "Happy Birthday" to the longest reigning monarch in British history.

Bookmaker Coral said that there is 2-1 from 5-1 odds that Queen Elizabeth II will be abdicating the throne sometime this year.

Meghan's outfit matched with her future husband, who also wore navy for the occasion.

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.

As is customary with monarch's birthdays, soldiers from the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery and the Honorable Artillery Company fired gun salutes in London's Hyde Park and the Tower of London earlier on Saturday.

Today honored the actual day of her birth, and a separate celebration in the summer is slated as a public party for her "official birthday" when she takes part in the Trooping the Color military parade in London.

She later joined Prince Charles on stage for the show's climax and was presented with a gift by a boy named Mason from west London, who was also celebrating his birthday.

The hilarious moment was caught on camera during the coverage of her star-studded birthday bash, which included Aussie golden girl Kylie Minogue.
