Queen Elizabeth II is celebrating her 92nd birthday with a concert at the Royal Albert Hall featuring a range of stars.

She will mark Saturday with a birthday concert at London's Royal Albert Hall.

Welsh singer Tom Jones kicked off the show with his hit "It's not Unusual" before Elizabeth appeared in the royal box of London's Albert Hall, flanked by her family. Today honored the actual day of her birth, and a separate celebration in the summer is slated as a public party for her "official birthday" when she takes part in the Trooping the Color military parade in London.

In the evening, the monarch and her family were due to attend a concert with performers from around the Commonwealth, the 53-nation grouping which held its summit in London this week.

To celebrate her milestone birthday, we gathered nine of her most memorable quotes of advice and wisdom.

The queen is head of the Commonwealth. Prince Harry is expected to lead tributes to his grandmother in his new role as president of The Queen's Commonwealth Trust.

She ascended to the throne in 1952, after her father's sudden death.

She still carries out official engagements but her husband Prince Philip, who spent 10 days in hospital this month for a hip replacement, retired from public life past year.

Horse-drawn guns fired 41 times in Hyde Park and 62 times at the Tower of London, while at Windsor Castle, the band played "Happy Birthday" during the changing of the guard.

But many on social media were left confused over how two comedians and a man who had a chance at becoming Prime Minister ended up singing at The Queen's 92nd birthday party.
