Britain's Queen Elizabeth can't wait for the Diamond Jubilee Concert on Monday.

The 86-year-old monarch is celebrating 60 years on the throne this year and from Saturday until Tuesday, the UK is enjoying a long public holiday weekend, which the whole royal family is excited about.

And the queen is especially looking forward to the star-studded concert which is being organised by Gary Barlow in front of Buckingham Palace on Monday evening.

The Take That frontman said: “You can really feel the anticipation for the Jubilee celebrations building now and I know the royal family are feeling it, too. They're gearing up and getting very excited - the queen is really looking forward to the whole weekend. They're all going to be there for the gig, which is fantastic.”

Gary says he's loved organising the concert, which features performances from the likes of Stevie Wonder, Robbie Williams, Sir Elton John, Jessie J and Kylie Minogue.

He said: “Bring put in charge of the line-up for this concert has been a dream for me because I'm a punter when it comes to music and I genuinely love every act we've got on.” - BANG Showbiz
