The Queen's epic eye roll when Prince Charles calls her 'mummy' during her birthday concert is priceless
The Queen's birthday concert saw performances by Sir Tom Jones, Kylie Minogue, Craig David, Anne-Marie, Shawn Mendes, Ladysmith Black Mambazo and more
The Queen surely had an epic weekend celebrating her 92nd birthday with her very own concert, but the royal also ended up as a meme, courtesy a playful exchange between her and her son Prince Charles. The monarch celebrated her 92nd birthday party at Royal Albert Hall Saturday night and also managed to become an Internet meme, thanks to a very sassy eye roll.
At the concert, the Prince of Wales raised three cheers as he wished his mum a happy 92nd birthday on Saturday night. Addressing the Queen, he primarily referred to her as “Your Majesty”, before switching to an embarrassing but familiar “Mummy”.
But the Queen, who is known for her subtle digs at people every now and then, could be seen rolling her eyes in amusement as the audience in front of her chucked and cheered on.
Prince Charles took to the stage alongside his mother, and said, "Your Majesty, mummy, I have a feeling that in 1948 when you were 22 you didn’t somehow expect that on your 92nd birthday to find your son in his 70th year," but the Queen could only resort to a sassy eye roll.
The 69-year-old told the audience in front of him: "So, just able still to raise a small hip hip, would you ladies and gentlemen all give her Majesty three unbelievable rousing cheers on her birthday," as he raised his hand in the air.
The Queen's birthday concert saw performances by Sir Tom Jones, Kylie Minogue, Craig David, Anne-Marie, Shawn Mendes, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, along with a special appearance by Sting and Shaggy.
The year is going to be a handful for the long-standing monarch, with her grandson Prince Harry getting ready to get hitched to his lover Meghan Markle in May this year, and his other daughter-in-law Kate Middleton expecting her third child with Prince William any day now.
As soon as the video of the Queen rolling her eyes at her son went online, people went gaga over the reaction that only mums are capable of, and took to social media to express their own views.
