Rain soaked revellers have celebrated the Queen's 90th birthday with a street party on the Mall for 10,000 well-wishers.

The Duke of Cambridge thanked the guests for not letting "a little rain spoil a good day out" and praised his "granny" as someone "we all look up to in good times and in challenging moments to set an example".
