Guests at the British High Commission snapping photos enthusiastically yesterday during the pipes and drums performance by the Gurkha Contingent at the start of the Queen's Birthday Party 2017, held at Eden Hall, the High Commissioner's Residence.

Queen Elizabeth II is 91 this year.

The birthday party comes at the end of a month of royal visits by Prince Harry and Prince Andrew, the Duke of York. It celebrates UK-Singapore ties, and this year's party showcases the best of British design.

Guests included ambassadors, military attaches and social leaders.
