Queen Elizabeth Celebrates Birthday Tonight With Shawn Mendes

Queen Elizabeth II is marking her 92nd birthday with a concert in London featuring British singers such as Sting, Tom Jones and Jamie Cullum on Saturday, April 21, 2018.

It was decided that instead of forcing everyone out onto the streets in the cold and rain, his birthday celebrations would simply be moved to a time of the year when we could count on the weather being better - or at the very least, not as bad.

Throughout the day, there are three midday gun salutes in Hyde Park, Windsor Great Park, and the Tower of London. The King's real birthday is November 9, 1683, and his other birthday falls on the second Saturday of June.

The Queen - the world's longest-reigning living monarch - will be in the audience along with other members of the royal family. It will be celebrated with a big parade in London called Trooping the Color.

I would have liked to have binoculars to inspect the royal expression when Jamaican toaster Shaggy went walkabout in the crowd, Mr Boombastic toasting the occasion with his lusty dancehall patois, but I think the Queen's mastery of the poker face is fairly well established by now.

Shaggy, Sting, Sir Tom Jones, Craig David and Kylie Minogue are among the artists who will take to the stage at the Royal Albert Hall in central London. While there, RAF planes perform an aerial display above the palace grounds.

While today is her actual birthday, on another date later in the year - usually the second weekend of June - she will celebrate her birthday all over again.

The Queen has led the disparate group, made up of Britain and its former colonies, since she too the throne in 1952.

The concert comes at the end of the week when the United Kingdom hosted 53 countries for the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting.
