Alicia Keys pulled out all the stops for her performance at Queen Elizabeth‘s Platinum Jubilee “Party at the Palace” on Saturday.

On Monday, the Grammy winner shared a behind-the-scenes video on Instagram chronicling her preparations for the big show, which celebrated the 70-year reign of the Queen, who “personally” requested the setlist.

“Telling the boys that the Queen requested the songs that I’m singing,” Keys shared in the clip as she sits with her sons in the back of a golf cart. “And they were like, ‘You can’t refuse the Queen.'”

“You can’t refuse the Queen. It’s against the law here,” her 11-year-old son Egypt responded.

Keys opened up about how she planned to celebrate powerful women with her performance.

“We here at Buckingham Palace. We are about to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee, which to me is for all the queens,” she said with a wink.

Keys also shared her own excitement about performing in front of Buckingham Palace ahead of her performance.

“Today was amazing, just to see where we’re performing. The content that would usually be placed on a screen is all going to be projected onto the palace,” she revealed. “I can’t wait to see how it looks, just sprawled with those beautiful songs, that 80-piece orchestra, the music, now with this look together with Moschino. It’s about to be crazy.”
