Queen Elizabeth parties with Lloyd Webber
Jul 3, 2012, 12:01 GMT
Britain's Queen Elizabeth spent her birthday with Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber.
The monarch was born on April 21, and instead of a big gathering to celebrate her 86th birthday this year, she enjoyed an intimate party with a cabaret session at the musical maestro's house and had a 'great evening'.
He said: 'She came round to my house and we did the cake there and a small cabaret. She loved it.
'I was tipped off by someone who's quite close to her what some of her favourite songs are, so we put them in the cabaret.
'We had Gareth Malone there, and half a dozen Military Wives and a few friends from racing, so we got their wives and we had the Racing Wives along with the Military Wives. It was a great evening.'
Lloyd Webber recently co-wrote a song entitled 'Sing' with Gary Barlow to celebrate Queen Elizabeth's 60th year on the throne, and he admits their performance at the Diamond Jubilee Concert was a great moment for him as it went so well.
He added to Radio Times magazine: 'Yeah, well, we couldn't have asked for a better result - we were number one by a long chalk and I'm pleased about that because I think we got it right for the occasion.'
