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. The major beneficiary of Saturday's event, televised live on BBC TV and radio, will be the Queen's Commonwealth Trust youth charity, of which her grandson Prince Harry was appointed president this week.

"Today, we join millions of people in Canada and around the world to celebrate the 92nd birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of Canada".

Hyde Park, the Tower of London, and the town of Windsor staged honorary gun salutes to mark the special occasion.
