It wasn't just the 12,000-strong crowd enjoying the show at last night's Jubilee concert. 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.

After a weekend of duties, the young Royals let loose at last night's Jubilee concert, where they waved flags and sang along to performances

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.
