Queen Elizabeth II is marking her 92nd birthday with a star-studded concert in London.

A 41-gun salute was staged in Hyde Park while other such salutes took place in other locations, as per tradition, the Daily Mail reported.

Sting, Tom Jones, Craig David and Kylie Minogue are among singers performing at the celebration at Royal Albert Hall, billed as the "Queen's Birthday Party".

The queen celebrates two birthdays every year: Her actual birthday on April. 21, which she usually marks privately with her family, and her "official birthday" in the summer.

Prince Harry is expected to speak at Saturday evening's event, in his new role as president of The Queen's Commonwealth Trust.

The queen has led the disparate group, made up of Britain and its former colonies, since she too the throne in 1952.

Sethi - whose mother was born in Guyana - said Charles asked her where she was from and when she replied, said: "Well, you don't look like it!" and laughed.

A non-white writer, Anita Sethi, claimed he joked about whether she was really from the British city of Manchester when they met at a Commonwealth meeting this week.

She wrote in The Guardian that she felt humiliated and angry, adding that "some people, including the prince, urgently need a history lesson about immigration".
