The royal family was ready to rock!
Kate Middleton and Prince William brought their eldest children Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 7, to the star-studded BBC concert outside Buckingham Palace to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee.
The children, the youngest of the Duke and Duchess’s three, were all smiles as they and around 20,000 other attendees enjoyed music from Adam Lambert and Queen, Rod Stewart and Diana Ross, as well as performances by ‘Andrew Lloyd Webber, Lin Manuel Miranda, and the London casts of ‘Hamilton’, ‘The Phantom of the Opera’, ‘The Lion King’, ‘Six and Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat’ – the latter featuring the one of the show’s most famous leads, Jason Donovan.
George and Charlotte and their parents waved small British flags during the show, officially titled Platinum Party at the Palace. They seemed excited as Lambert and Queen performed “We Are the Champions.” With Kate and
William, the children sang while Stewart performed a cover of Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline.” The Duchess and her daughter were also spotted signing with Ross and she performed ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’.

The Queen herself, who suffered from mobility issues, did not attend the show, but appeared in a pre-recorded skit with popular children’s character Paddington Bear.
A few hours before attending the concert, Kate, William, George and Charlotte visited Cardiff Castle in Wales. The Cambridges met fans, including performers and crew members involved in the Platinum Jubilee Celebration Concert which later took place on the castle grounds.
Earlier this week, the four, plus youngest child Prince Louis, 4, joined the Queen and other senior royals on a balcony at Buckingham Palace to watch the Trooping the Color Parade, a belated celebration of the ceremonial monarch’s 96th birthday. The event was also part of the Platinum Jubilee festivities, which mark the 70th anniversary of the Queen’s accession.
