The Royals appeared on stage at the end of the show for a rendition of Happy Birthday – but one was not amused when her son decided to call her ‘mummy’ in front of everyone.
Taking the microphone Prince Charles first addressed the 92-year-old as “your majesty” before adding with a smirk “mummy”.
As the audience chuckled, The Queen could be seen rolling her eyes in amusement too.
He continued and asked the crowd to give her a hip, hip, hooray – or a “hip, hip” as he called it.
He said: “I have a feeling that in 1948 when you were 22, you didn’t somehow expect at your 92nd birthday to find your son in his 70th year.
“So, just able still to raise a small hip, hip… would you please give your majesty three unbelievably rousing cheers on her birthday.”
The amusing moment didn’t go unnoticed by fans who took to Twitter to comment on it.
One person tweeted: “Even Liz rolled her eyes at Charles calling her "Mummy". #QueensBirthdayParty.”
Another added: “That eye roll from the queen though when Charles called her Mummy ? #Queensbirthdayparty.”
While a third remarked: “The Queen’s eye roll at Charles calling her ‘mummy’ ? #QueensBirthdayParty.”
The Queen was joined by her son, Prince William, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for the star-studded concert, which was billed as The Queen's Birthday Party.
Welsh singer Tom Jones kicked off the show with his hit "It's Not Unusual" shortly before Elizabeth appeared in the royal box of London's Albert Hall, flanked by her family.
Kylie Minogue, Sting, Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Shaggy were among those on the bill, along with stars of the stage and screen.
The event is a break in tradition for the queen who usually spends her birthday privately with little public celebration, although there were nationwide events to mark her 90th.
The concert comes at the end of a week in which leaders and dignitaries from 53 countries came to London for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, and featured performers from the network of mostly former British colonies.
Elizabeth also has an "official" birthday in June, which is marked with a large parade of soldiers through central London, known as Trooping the Colour.
