The Queen's message to President Obama:

"I was deeply saddened to hear of the loss of life and devastation caused by yesterday’s tornado in Oklahoma. Prince Philip joins me in offering our heartfelt condolences to the victims and their families at this difficult time. Our deepest sympathies go out to all those whose lives have been affected, as well as the American people."

I dont know which thread to put this on - so please feel free to move. And apologies if it is a duplicate.

This is an article on the upcoming exhibition at BP for the Coronation. There are some lovely photos - a couple I've never seen before

Thank you for this article . The pictures are absolutely beautiful. Her Majesty's Coronation Robe was fit for well, a Queen, and it suited her quite nicely. She looked the part, and I think the regalia just added to it. Anne and Charles looked absolutely precious.

I don't Know if this is the right place.

The Queen (Will Helen Mirren Dressed as the Queen) fulfills a boy (with Down Syndrome) wish to meet the Queen and have Tea.

Helen Mirren gives royal welcome to boy with Down syndrome, terminal cancer
Randee DawnTODAY contributor

Dame Helen Mirren all by herself is pretty terrific. But put the 70-year-old Oscar winner in the outfit of the Queen, and she wears it like a superhero.

Recently, she stormed outside mid-performance of her London show "The Audience" (in which she plays Queen Elizabeth II) to unload on noisy drummers (and later publicly wore a handmade T-shirt supporting their cause). But her latest deed goes one step further: Last week, she agreed to have tea with 10-year-old Oliver Burton, who has Down syndrome and has been battling cancer for much of his short life.


Burton was diagnosed with leukemia in 2006, and was recently given a terminal diagnosis, according to a Facebook page set up to support him. But he had one dying wish: To have afternoon tea with the Queen and visit Buckingham Palace, as reported by the Leicester Mercury.

A national trust designed to support cancer-stricken children requested the actual Queen Elizabeth II -- who couldn't work it into her schedule.

So Mirren stepped forward to invite him to the Gielgud Theatre to see her play the Queen -- and invited him backstage to share tea and cake and to meet the corgis who star in the play with her. There were even footmen.And naturally, she was in costume the entire time.

"Our incredibly brave Ollie has Tea with The Queen!" the National/Regional Children's Tumor Leukaemia and Cancer Trust posted on their page.

His mother Catherine told the Mercury, "Dame Helen was brilliant. She stayed in character the whole time and spent a lot of time talking to Oliver and drawing him out of himself. She signed his British flag, which he waves all the time."

She also knighted him, with her hand. Now, that's royal behavior.

If she granted everyone of these requests she would be inundated with them. I am not disappointed but fully understanding of this situation - and in all likelihood The Queen herself was never even informed as this would have been dealt with by staff who get 10000s of requests to do things every year that they turn down for all sorts of reasons.

This made my day- love Helen! And she so looks like the Queen! They should have had an actor along to play Phillip..... The perfect person comes to mind....
No, not James Cromwell!
Later- I did not realize this took place backstage at " The Audience"- How I wish "Mr. Churchill" had been there!

Nope... not James Cromwell. As good as a serious drama actor he is, I see him and automatically see Stretch Cunningham from All In The Family.

The Daily Mail has some fantastic photos if anybody could post the article. Helen sat in Ollie's wheelchair- he sat on her throne- I could cry!

This was such a kind of gesture! Yes, it would have been great if Her Majesty could have made this visit, but she may have had engagements that could not be rescheduled. I bet if she could, she would have been there. In any case, it looks like Oliver had a blast, even if he didn't meet the 'real' Queen.

Oliver would have been in heaven then. Who knows? Maybe 'Mr. Churchill' will cross his path in the near future, along with Her Majesty.
