Yesterday, Her Majesty The Queen, along with several members of the royal family, celebrated her 92nd birthday with a concert at the Royal Albert Hall. She was joined by Prince Charles, Duchess Camilla, Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Prince William, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, and Lady Louise in the royal box.

The concert’s roster of artists included Sir Tom Jones, Kylie Minogue, Craig David, Anne-Marie, Shawn Mendes, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Sting, and Shaggy. But the main highlight of the night was Prince Charles’ heartfelt turned amusing birthday message to his mum.

To end the night, Prince Charles took the stage for a speech and said: “Your Majesty, mummy...,” which left the Queen wide-eyed and the audience, as well as the perfomers onstage, amused. He continued, “I have a feeling that in 1948, when you were 22, you didn’t somehow expect that on your 92nd birthday to find your son in his 70th year. So just able to still raise a small hip hip. Would you ladies and gentlemen? Would you all give Her Majesty three unbelievably rousing cheers on her birthday?”
