Per People, Queen and Lambert will open the BBC's Platinum Party At The Palace concert.

Their return to the palace comes 20 years after guitarist Brian May performed God Save The Queen on Buckingham Palace's roof during a show marking the Golden Jubilee.

Of the invitation, May said: "Twenty years after playing the Queen's glorious Golden Jubilee, we're very happy to be invited again … there was a moment when I wondered, 'After Buckingham Palace roof, where can you go?' Well, you will see!"

The event will conclude with a performance by Ross - her first UK live performance in 15 years.

Of her upcoming performance, she said: "I have had the honour of meeting the queen many times throughout my life, including when I was with my family.

"Her Majesty has and continues to be such an incredible inspiration to so many across the world, and I was absolutely delighted to receive an invitation to perform on such a momentous and historic occasion."

Special appearances will also be made by Sir David Attenborough, Emma Raducanu, David Beckham, Stephen Fry, and Dame Julie Andrews.
