In another, she playfully holds a small piece of cloth above her face that reads "The Queen".

In a caption accompanying the picture, the Like A Prayer star wrote to her 11.6 million followers on Instagram: "In case someone forgot!"

Stars from across music, film and television lined up to pass on their birthday wishes to Madonna.

Before the expansive birthday party-expected to take place in the luxurious Riad El Fenn belonging to Vanessa Branson, the sister of British billionaire Richard Branson-Madonna took some time to visit Marrakech's medina (old city). "Bee's fly to the Honey in. the Souk!" tweeted the singer of "La Isla Bonita", who is promising a memorable birthday party. What a force and an inspiration.

The pop icon has always represented the complexity and tension between her namesake (Madonna - the Virgin Mary of course) and being the definition of the "Material Girl".

Singer Lisa Stanfield wrote: "Happy 60th birthday your Madgesty. Long may you reign".

She announced her first single for three years called Beautiful Game in May.
