Party at the Palace: George and Charlotte watch Jubilee concert

Father and son were filmed laughing together after the royal box was urged to copy late Freddy Mercury's iconic shouts. Prince George looked like a mini version of Prince William in a blue suit and tie. The eight-year-old was spotted throughout the show clapping his hands and following the rhythm of the songs performed on stage.

Looking eager and happy to be at the special event, the third-in-line to the throne was also seen waving a Union Jack on multiple occasions alongside his sister. 

Prince George and his sister Princess Charlotte surprised royal watchers with their unannounced attendance at the concert. 

The spectacle, televised by the BBC, saw a crowd of more than 22,000 ticket-holders - and thousands more stood in the Mall. 

Alongside Prince George, Charlotte and their parents, there were some 30 members of the Royal Family in attendance.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were not among them.

A spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced shortly before the beginning of the star-studded event that the pair would not join the rest of the family as they were dedicating the day to their children. 

Indeed, today marks a very special milestone for the family of four, as their daughter Lilibet 'Lili' Diana is turning one. 

Notably absent tonight was also Her Majesty, who watched the show from her home in Windsor.

Nevertheless, the sovereign brushed up on her acting skill and was featured at the beginning of the show by appearing in a heartwarming clip featuring herself and Paddington bear having tea at Buckingham Palace

The concert took place on the doorsteps of Buckingham Palace on three stages linked together to perfectly frame the Queen's residence behind them. 

While it was dedicated to the Queen and her extraordinary 70-year-long reign, the concert also touched on a number of global themes such as the environment, sports and fashion that were born, or evolved, during the breadth of Her Majesty’s reign. 

Musicals were also featured with a performance curated by legendary composer Andrew Lloyd Webber featuring a special appearance by Lin-Manuel Miranda and the members of the casts from The Phantom Of The Opera, Hamilton, Six, The Lion King and Joseph And The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
