See some reactions on social media:

The Notting Hill Carnival kicked off its first celebration in 1966 and was organized by activist Rhaune Laslett, whose intention was to create a celebration that brought together different cultures and encouraged integration in the neighbourhood's diverse community.

Meanwhile, some months ago, Adele left jaws hanging after she took to social media to share a new photo of herself.

The Hello music star turned 32 on May 5, 2020 and marked her birthday with a new Instagram photo. However, fans were more excited about her new look more than her new age.

Posing in a cute mini black dress, the singer showed off her incredible seven stone weight loss. She shared the photo, thanking her fans for the birthday love, urging them to remain safe.
