Queen rolls her eyes during Prince Charles’ speech at her star-studded 92nd birthday bash
The Queen was seen comically rolling her eyes when Prince Charles called her ‘mummy’ during her star-studded 92nd birthday bash at the Royal Albert Hall last night. As she joined Charles, 69, on stage for the show’s live climax he addressed her as ‘Your Majesty’ before using the familial term.
The crowd roared with laughter as the Queen momentarily broke the formality at the event to mark her birthday. She broke out into a smile as Charles encouraged the crowd to give her three ‘unbelievably rousing cheers’. He said: ‘I have a feeling that in 1948, when you were 22, you didn’t somehow expect that at the age of your 92nd birthday, to find your son in his 70th year.’ The event also saw Prince Harry, speaking for the first time in his role as president of the newly formed Queen’s Commonwealth Trust (QCT), joke that Her Majesty was ‘not someone who is easy to buy gifts for’.
The concert tops off an already very busy week hosting 53 countries for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting. At another concert held during the summit, the Queen couldn’t hide her resting bitch face when a singer nearly fell off the stage at Buckingham Palace. But at last night’s birthday celebration Sir Tom Jones, Kylie Minogue, Sting and Shaggy and Craig David all took to the stage. The Queen sat in the Royal box alongside Prince Charles and the Duke of Cambridge, Prince Harry appeared alongside his bride-to-be Meghan Markle. But the Duchess of Cambridge was noticeably absent as she awaits the birth of her third child any day now. In another unusual collaboration, Frank Skinner, Ed Balls and Harry Hill performed George Formby’s signature song When I’m Cleaning Windows especially for the Queen, who is said to be a big Formby fan. The Queen had left her seat by the time Sting and Shaggy returned for a medley of their biggest hits, including Mr Boombastic, Angel and Every Breath You Take. Stay sassy, Your Majesty.
