Dame Shirley Bassey has been awarded with the freedom of the city of her hometown of Cardiff

The Welsh singer, 82, looked thrilled as she was presented with the accolade by the Lord Mayor of Cardiff during a special ceremony at Cardiff's City Hall.

Shirley was born in Tiger Bay and grew up in Splott. She now resides in Monaco.
The musical legend smiled and waved to the crowd as she arrived at the venue for the event.

Speaking to waiting press and photographers, she said it was a 'proud day', adding that she was 'emotional' and 'nervous.'

She also told ITV Wales that the honour was 'up there with getting her Damehood'.
The Diamonds Are Forever hitmaker looked elegant in a patterned midi dress, which she teamed with a chunky silver belt, a black blazer and heels.

As ever, Shirley was the picture of glamour with her perfectly coiffed hair and make-up applied to perfection.
