Adele made sure to celebrate Pride’s 50th anniversary in style as she wrapped herself in a rainbow flag for her second epic performance at BST Hyde Park.

The singer shared her love for the LGBT community during the spectacular performance, donning the Progress Pride flag as she belted out her song “When We Were Young.”

Adele, 34, was also seen waving the flag, with many supporters in the crowd waving their rainbow flags straight back at her, just hours after the Pride parade in London.

She told the audience: “Happy Pride. I wore my hair today to try and be a little draggy.

The star has been a long-time supporter of the LGBT community, previously appearing for free on Pride in 2011 and describing the community as her “soul mates” during an emotional speech following the 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting in Florida.

Of course, she was also ordained to marry her close friend Alan Carr to his husband Paul Drayton in 2018.

Adele lit up London’s Hyde Park on Friday and Saturday with her epic performances, which marked her first headlining gigs in the UK since 2017.

It’s been a glorious homecoming for the singer, who released her album 30 earlier this year.

Stars including Tom Cruise, Ant and Dec and James Corden were on hand to support the star, but she probably only had eyes for one person in the crowd – her nine-year-old son Angelo, who was also supporting her.

She was visibly thrilled to be back and burst into tears as she took the stage on Friday.

Another of the most memorable moments came when the superstar was overcome with emotion as he heard fans singing back their iconic hit Someone Like You.

Meanwhile, Adele was also praised for stopping her show to help a fan in the audience who was in need.

She stopped the show after realizing someone in the audience needed help and called security to pull her out of the crowd.

Fans applauded the singer for being so caring, pointing out that not only did she call a steward to save the fan, but she also went over so she could see what was going on.
