Fans loved the sweet family photo – although some were divided over Rod's performance at the palace, with a number questioning why he had chosen to sing a cover of Sweet Caroline rather than his own songs.

"Why Sweet Caroline??? You have so many of your own hits… sorry was disappointed," one wrote. A number of fans came to Rod's defence, however, with one explaining: "The nation was encouraged to sing Neil Diamond's Sweet Caroline to celebrate the Queen's Platinum.

Sir Rod performed at the Platinum Party at the Palace on Saturday

"The song was chosen by listeners of Zoe Ball's Radio 2 Breakfast Show because it is an uplifting and happy melody. Sir Rod was asked to perform this song. I loved his version of Sweet Caroline. Did you notice the crowd? Looked happy to me. Great job, Sir Rod."

The star with his five eldest children

Rod, 77, is a proud father to eight children by five different mothers. He has been married since 2007 and together they share sons Aiden, ten, and 16-year-old Alastair.

The star previously credited his wife as the key to holding together his blended family. "She is a remarkable talent for [keeping everyone together]. It was hard coming up with all the other kids, they didn't know if it was another woman trying to get hold of dad's money… far from it.

With all four of his sons

"She won them all over and they all adore her now. We just had a wonderful holiday all together in Florida. Florida won't be the same since the Stewarts were there."
