Britain's Queen Elizabeth is celebrating 60 years on the throne this year, and Bono was among a group of superstars that attended an arts event in London to pay tribute to her reign.
Bono praised the Queen for her trip to Ireland last year, the first time a British monarch visited the Irish Republic.
"I wanted to take this opportunity to acknowledge the extraordinary magic that you made on your trip to Ireland,” Bono told a room full of stars that also included Paul McCartney, Roger Daltrey and Annie Lennox.
"And the queen spoke Gaelic, I can't even speak Gaelic,” he added.
