Britain's royals usually exchange small gifts on Christmas Eve, a practice popularized by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. The queen typically frowns on extravagant gifts, and many of the presents are novelty items.
The 92-year-old Queen joined her son and heir to the throne Charles, grandsons William and Harry and their wives Kate and Meghan at the Royal Albert Hall in central London at an event organised to pay tribute to all those who have died.
Meghan Markle recently attended the Young Leaders Awards clad in a pastel shaded ensemble by Prada. Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth picked a light green, floral printed ensemble. Take a look at the photos here.
At the birthday event of Queen Elizabeth II, the audience at Royal Albert Hall got a rare treat Saturday — the chance to sing "Happy Birthday" to the longest reigning monarch in British history.
