Queen Elizabeth to Celebrate 92nd Birthday With Performances From Shawn Mendes, Shaggy and More!
By Rachel McRady
There’s nothing holding Queen Elizabeth back! The British monarch is gearing up to celebrate her 92nd birthday next month, and she has a lineup of stars set to perform for her in a live music event with the BBC.
Musicians performing for Her Majesty include Shawn Mendes, Kylie Minogue, Craig David, Sir Tom Jones, Shaggy, Sting, Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Anne Marie. The event will take place at the Royal Albert Hall in London and will air on April 21 -- Queen Elizabeth’s actual birthday!
According to a release from the Palace, “many members of the Royal Family” will be in attendance, though it was not specified whether or not Meghan Markle will be attending ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry.
Tickets are also available to members of the public.
There will also be a BBC One special on Queen Elizabeth’s rule over the Commonwealth for the past 60 years. In the special, newsreader George Alagiah travels the globe to visit many of the Commonwealth’s nations.
“What we see in this film is the transformation of a young, diffident woman into a confident figure able to command the respect of leaders around the world,” Alagiah said in a statement.
Because one birthday is simply not enough, Queen Elizabeth also celebrates her birthday at the Trooping the Colour in June every year. This year she’ll have a new official member of the royal family in attendance – Meghan Markle, fresh off her wedding to Prince Harry on May 19.
April is a busy time for the Royal Family. In addition to celebrating Queen Elizabeth’s birthday, Kate Middleton is also due to welcome her third child with Prince William.
