Katherine Jenkins kicks off Diamond Jubilee by singing for Queen
Classical singer Katherine Jenkins kick-started the Diamond Jubilee celebration on Saturday by performing for the Queen.
The Welsh star belted out the national anthem at the Derby at the first major event of the weekend's festivities to mark the monarch's 60-year reign.
Crowds of well-wishers waving Union Jacks cheered as the Queen was accompanied by her husband, Prince Philip, in a royal motorcade across the world-famous racecourse.
She was also treated to a display by the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, and a performance by the Army's parachute team, the Red Devils.
Gun salutes were also held in London, Edinburgh, Cardiff, and Belfast on the anniversary of the Queen's coronation in 1953.
The celebrations also include a star-studded concert in front of Buckingham Palace, featuring Sir Elton John and Sir Paul McCartney, as well as a boat pageant on the River Thames, while thousands of street parties and outdoor fairs are being staged.
