The Queen celebrates her 92nd birthday with a concert

Kylie Minogue, Ladysmith and Shawn Mendes were a few among many performing.

Surrounded by loved ones, Queen Elizabeth celebrated her 92nd birthday in style, with a celebratory concert at the Royal Albert Hall.

The concert breaks the Queen’s usual tradition of a private birthday, with little to no public involvement.

The celebration also marks the end of a week that has cemented Queen Elizabeth’s Commonwealth legacy.

To begin the evening, Prince Charles paid tribute to his mother with a heartfelt speech.

“While all birthdays are special, this year, the Queen’s birthday falls at the end of the week-long Commonwealth Summit in London, which has brought together 53 countries,” he said.

“Tonight we reflect on the pledge made by the Queen on her 21st birthday in 1947 in South Africa, to serve the Commonwealth for her whole life.

With my father, the Duke of Edinburgh, at her side, the Queen has dedicated herself, throughout her reign, to serving the United Kingdom and the other countries of the Commonwealth.

“Tonight we pay tribute to her devotion to duty, her steadfastness in times of uncertainty, and her vital role in uniting people from all walks of life through her enduring strength and humanity.

“With my family, I join you in wishing my mother, the Queen, a very happy birthday.”
