Queen Elizabeth II has celebrated her 92nd birthday with a Saturday night concert in London featuring British singers such as Sting, Tom Jones and Jamie Cullum.

Gracious throughout, Queen Elizabeth acknowledged the crowd with a smile and her trademark royal wave.

During the concert, Harry took the stage to wish his mum a Happy Birthday: "Tonight we are celebrating the Queen's Birthday, but, Your Majesty, if you do not mind me saying, you are not someone who is easy to buy gifts for".

Ahead of her celebration, the queen formerly named Prince Charles her successor, putting an end to speculation that she may choose to skip him in favor of his son, Prince William. At first, Prince Charles called her "Your Majesty", but then he got personal.

Elizabeth became queen on February 6, 1952 after her father, King George VI, died.

Bogdanovic scored 15 in the fourth quarter as the Pacers took a 2-1 lead in the series, with Game 4 on Sunday in Indianapolis. I could go on and on about what Milwaukee needs to do better to get back into this series but the message is pretty simple.

Prince William was also in attendance, riding in the vehicle with Harry and Markle, but his wife Kate Middleton, pregnant with their third child, opted to stay home. All rights reserved.

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. The couple will Wednesday May 19 at Windsor Castle.

The Duchess of Cambridge was noticeably absent as she awaits the birth of her third child any day now. Because of this announcement, Prince Charles will likely represent the queen in an honorary capacity at future commonwealth gatherings.

The show featured contemporary tunes, but included songs from earlier eras, including selections from "My Fair Lady" - one of the queen's favorites - and a sentimental rendering of "Wonderful World".

The royal couple in the making, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, on Saturd, ay attended a televised concert at London's Royal Albert Hall on the occasion of Queen Elizabeth's 92nd birthday celebration.

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.
