Too much fun last night Queen is as fresh as a daisy after four days of Jubilee celebrations but the younger royals are looking rather weary
Young royals look heavy-lidded during 75-minute tribute to their grandmother at St Paul's this morning

At last night's Buckingham Palace Jubilee concert, William, Kate and Harry had a whale of a time, waving flags and singing along with gusto.
But this morning as the young royals attended the 75 minute Thanksgiving service at St Paul's Cathedral this morning, they might have wished they'd cut their revelry short in favour of an early night.
As David Cameron gave a bible reading, the three struggled to maintain the enthusiasm that has come so naturally to them across this Jubilee weekend.
Harry seemed to be suffering a wave of tiredness as the service got underway, and William's eyelids seemed to be drooping. Even the Duchess of Cambridge, so practised in her expressions, looked a touch glassy-eyed – although she fared better than the boys.
But only those entirely lacking in sympathy could fault the young Royals for letting their guards slip for a moment. The three, along with all of the royals, have put on a show this weekend that has made millions of Britons proud.

At last night's concert, the three had joined in with the 12,000-strong crowd with boundless enthusiasm. Watching Paul McCartney, Elton John and Jessie J on stage outside Buckingham Palace last night, the young Royals looked as elated as the rest.
Beatrice, Kate, William, Zara and Harry sat alongside the rest of their family in the royal box to watch the spectacular, which ended in a stunning firework display at 10.30pm last night.
The fun foursome sang along with the lively performances, waving Union flags in time to the music.
Buckingham Palace was the backdrop, but sometimes also the stage – Madness took to the roof of the Palace to give a rousing performance that had the crowd on their feet.

The Young Royals cheered along with
the deafening roar of the crowd when Prince Charles took to the stage
with Sir Paul, Dame Shirley Bassey and Elton John, among others, to pay
tribute to his father. Prince Philip, who had been taken into hospital
yesterday with a bladder infection.
After he told the crowd if they cheered loud enough he 'just might hear them,' a resounding round of applause went up, while while Kate, William and Harry joined in and waved their flags.
The Queen, who looked resplendent in a gold gown last night as she appeared at the concert, despite her husband receiving treatment in hospital, seemed visibly moved as her son gave a witty and emotional speech in praise of his mother at the close of last night's concert, and joked that the Duke of Edinburgh might hear the Jubilee
concert from his bed if the crowd shouted loud enough.
He said: ‘The only sad thing about tonight is that my father cannot be here with us because, unfortunately, he’s been taken unwell.’
After the show, the Queen took to the stage to the last of 4,015 beacons lit across the globe to mark her 60 years on the throne.
Today the Royals will appear at St Paul's Cathedral for a thanksgiving service, where the Queen will give a speech to her family and subjects which she recorded in her private rooms last night.
Prince Philip will not attend the service today.
