Rod Stewart plays UK prince's 60th birthday bash

LONDON (AP) - Singer Rod Stewart has headlined a star-studded birthday bash for Britain's Prince Charles.

The pop star performed at a party given by Charles' wife, Camilla, at their Highgrove estate home in southwest England.

Comedian Rowan Atkinson, known to most as "Mr. Bean," was among the first guests to arrive. Others included actresses Dame Judi Dench and Joanna Lumley, as well as Camilla's former husband, Brigadier Andrew Parker Bowles.

It was the third celebration in a week for the prince, who turned 60 on Friday.

His mother, Queen Elizabeth, held a dinner party and concert at Buckingham Palace Thursday. And yesterday, the prince was honored with a 41-gun salute in London's Hyde Park and a celebration with young people sponsored by his charity.
