Pop princess Kylie Minogue has been added to the bill of the show for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert in London.

The show is a celebration of the Queen’s 60-year reign and will be attended by Her Majesty as well as the Duke of Edinburgh and other members of the Royal Family.

“I’m honoured to be invited to perform at the Diamond Jubilee Concert,” Kylie said.

“To share the stage in front of Buckingham Palace with music legends including Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Tom Jones and Elton John in celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee is very exciting.”

Kylie has experience of performing in front of royalty, having sung for Prince Charles.

Stevie Wonder has also been added, prompting speculation that he will perform his worldwide hit Happy Birthday at the show, which takes place on the Queen’s official birthday.

“It’s an honour to celebrate The Queen. It’s an honour to celebrate Great Britain. The time is overdue that I meet Her Majesty,” he said.

Other performers - including Sir Paul, Sir Tom and Sir Elton - were announced three weeks ago.

There will also be a specially written song created by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Gary Barlow.

Members of the public can still apply for free tickets until Friday at www.bbc.co.uk/diamondjubilee.

The concert will be broadcast live on BBC1 and on BBC Radio 2.
