  Millions watch palace pop party
Updated 04 June 2002, 10.30
S Club rock with Sir Cliff Richard
Pop stars like S Club 7 and Will Young rocked Buckingham Palace on Monday night to mark the Queen's Jubilee.

More than a million people gathered in London to hear the concert, and a lucky 12,000 actually saw it from inside the palace grounds.

S Club performed as a seven for the last time ever, and the band said an emotional goodbye to Paul on stage, who's leaving to be with his nu metal band, Skua.

Paul said: "People have been asking me how it feels to be leaving but it hasn't really sunk in yet - the occasion has swamped out any feelings I had.

"There's a feeling of nostalgia because of all the good laughs we've had, but I'm over the moon to be doing what I'm going to be doing."

They were watched by top royals including the Queen, Prince Charles, and Wills and Harry, who seemed to have a great time.

Pop Idol Will Young was a huge hit with the crowds, and his performance with rock band Queen was one of the highlights of the show.

Will said: "It was absolutely petrifying during rehearsals. But on the night it was absolutely electric."
