With British officials on high alert Sunday at London's Wembley Stadium, a different kind of chaos broke out. A massive celebration was held to honor the life of Princess Diana, ten years after her death.
Elton John opened the massive memorial concert for Princess Diana, singing his hit "your song."
Diana's sons planned the concert to mark the tenth anniversary of her death and to remember her charity work.
"This evening is about all my mother loved in life. Her music, her dance, her charities, and her family and friends," said Prince William.
Among the long list of international stars, the Princes' and Diana's favorite performers played for a crowd of 60,000 at Wembley Stadium in London.
The concert was also beamed around the world, to 145 countries.
Security was tight due to Britain's heightened alert level. The princes didn't mention the recent terrorist acts, instead Prince Harry remembered his army unit, currently serving in Iraq.
"I wish I was there with you. Sorry I can't be," said Prince Harry.
To remember the woman who did so much for so many, proceeds from the event will go to Diana's favorite charities.
