What do you get for the beloved monarch who has everything? How about a star-studded concert? That could work. And that's exactly what London is doing for its own beloved monarch/birthday girl, Queen Elizabeth II.

Tonight, in honor of the Queen's 92nd birthday, Royal Albert Hall in London hosted a massive concert event. Takeaway: Queens don't do low-key birthdays, in case you were wondering:

While the very-pregnant, due-any-day-now Kate Middleton was, understandably, not able to make it, Elizabeth's grandsons, Prince William and Prince Harry made a point of coming out for the big night. Also in attendance? Harry's fiancée, Meghan Markle, who is clearly already a part of the royal family, even though her wedding is still close to a month away.

Meghan, on the other hand, opted for a look that managed to perfectly straddle the line between demure and daring. The navy blue, crew neck dress by English fashion designer Stella McCartney. The daring part? The dress has a cape. Meghan completed the look with navy, suede Manolo Blahnik pumps and a Leo Zodiac clutch by Naeem Khan.

According to a post on Kensington Palace's Instagram Stories (what a very 2018 sentence), Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, also joined the Queen at her birthday concert, making it a true family affair.
