This video has excellent views of Harry & Meghan exiting the vehicle, entering the venue, going through the receiving line, and entering the theater's royal box. Meghan got out of the car and accepted flowers from someone in the crowd, which was unplanned, and probably unexpected by the security team...

Royals rotate their attendance at the event, I dont believe Henry has attended on his own before so to say it was his year to attend is quite slim. Theyve obviously decided to be put into the rotation now hes married, certainly dont think William attended before he was married.

I really dont see whats bad about the RVP, its a great event to raise money for charity.

When I think of the Royal Variety Performance, it makes me think back and how many times in old movies and shows that I've seen people billed as "performing for the crowned heads of Europe". The RVP, as we know it today, used to be the Royal Command Performance and dates back to the time of Queen Victoria where the "best of the best" would be commanded to perform for the Queen (or King and Queen). It was "the" feather in one's cap to perform and those that attended wore their very best glad rags and jewels.

So actually its tradition that states that there be British royals at this performance. Gone are the days of it being "commanded" and the jewels remain in their vault but its still a grand honor to be asked to perform for this show.

Thanks for providing a bit of the history of this traditional event, dating all the way back to Queen Victoria. Of course, even Queen Elizabeth I was known for her love of hosting plays and entertainments at court.

Makes me realize just how far we've come. It used to be that if you were invited to attend a royal performance, it was something special and for the performer, one that boosted his/her reputation as one to see. Now when there's a performance, we wonder how soon we can stream it, view it on YouTube or order the DVD and view it wearing our blue, fuzzy slippers sipping coffee and eating donuts.

From 1848 to around 1912 though, and intermittently after the Prince Consort's death in Victoria's reign, the Performances tended to be well known actors of the time performing successful West End plays. Besides Shakespeare plays, Gilbert and Sullivan operas and later some revues and musical comedies were popular with the royals

. It wasn't until 1912 that there was a Variety show, with music hall artists performing before King George and Queen Mary, and regular annual variety shows before royalty weren't established until after World War One.

Thanks!

ETA: I hope there is at least a partial that'll end up on Youtube, because it keeps getting stuck.

This year was one of the better years IMO and I didn't expect the performance to be this good. My favourite act was the Britain's Got Talent winner Lee Ridley (I'm glad that there are more people with disabilities on television and in the media).
