Her Majesty looked at ease on the balcony as she leaned on her stick, now a routine aid following her mobility issues.
The national anthem was then played, as celebrities including Sir David Jason, Harry Redknapp, Sir Cliff Richard, Sandie Shaw and Felicity Kendal joined in a mass rendition of God Save The Queen.
