"I’m very sorry he’s going to miss the concert because he’s really part of the celebration," said Canadian tourist Marielle Demorsce. "He’s part of the 60 years, he’s put in a lot of work with the queen to appear all over the world and we love him too so very much."

The jubilee was being marked around the world in members of the 54-nation Commonwealth of former British colonies.

At the end of the concert, the queen lit the last in a chain of more than 4,200 commemorative beacons that have been set alight in Britain and abroad.

One beacon was lit in Kenya at the Treetops Hotel, where Elizabeth was informed of her father’s death in 1952, making her the queen.

Although not everyone has embraced the jubilee — anti-monarchists have protested, and some 2 million Britons used the four-day holiday weekend to leave the country — many said it gave them a sense of pride.

"Sixty years on the throne is a remarkable achievement," said 47-year-old Dean Caston, who joined the crowds outside the palace on Monday. "People knock Britain and how depressed we are, but this weekend you can see we have got a lot to be proud of."
