Queen Elizabeth took the throne at the ripe age of 25 fast forward 60 years later and you find a whole country celebrating her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee!

The celebration came to a close yesterday with more than half a million people at a concert honoring her this past Monday night.

Some of the performers included – Sir Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Sir Paul Mc Cartney, Kylie Minogue, Sir Tom Jones,(I had no idea he too had been Knighted) and many more. Oh and apparently they also previewed the new Whitney Houston song too!

Even though the Queen is not a huge fan of Pop music she still hung around and enjoyed the festivities as much as she could despite her husband, Prince Phillip not being at her side as he is still recovering from a bladder infection and was taken to the hospital.

You can catch the whole shindig tonight on ABC - Concert for The Queen: A Diamond Jubilee Celebration with Katie Couric 9/8c
