If you don't bop along with Stevie Wonder then there's something wrong with you.

Yeah, I'm not sure why they were singing happy birthday - kind of embarrassed for them. Obviously someone in their camp didn't do the research.

It looked like the Queen enjoyed Stevie's last song.

These video projections on Buckingham Palace are really cool.

The Queens 'official' birthday is a week on saturday. This event is for the Diamond Jubilee, celebrating 60 years on the throne. Not a birthday, so Happy Birthday is no where near appropriate.

Maybe they're sorta celebrating Trooping at the same time? Since it is next week but I know it's not officially her birthday. My mom is making excuses saying maybe they're saying happy birthday to her 60 years of reign I'm like that still doesn't make sense oh well

They are not.
The Queen's official birthday, along with Trooping the Colour, is on a Saturday in June.

How cool it must be, singing up there on the roof of the Buckingham Palace.

Thanks, I've forgotten the date it is to take place this year; too many exiting events in June!

Don't get hung up on the mistakes, folks. It's all done in the right spirit. I'm sure HM is gracious enough to appreciate the sentiment.

Her offical birthday is the anniversary of her coronation which is this weekend. The only reason the Trooping of the Colour (not her offical birthday) has been moved is because of this celebration on her accession to the throne (on the date of her coronation)

Don't think it was a mistake, just another form of tribute. Grace Jones now was a different matter.
According to DM, the Queen is wearing ear plugs - and I don't blame her.
