I would love to see Mr. Hardy on the floor of Buckingham Palace, playing with little ones with special needs, as Her Majesty is hosting some sort of event. Since you've mentioned this happening several times, I don't think anyone bats an eyelash anymore. I think Her Majesty is a reasonable enough person, and understands when it's worth reprimanding someone for breaching the protocol, and when it's better to just let things go. I'd be a little upset if she got irritated with a child that had Autism for lashing out because he/she was over-stimulated but didn't have the words, but I would completely agree with her if she were to say something to a person that was getting a little too familiar for no reason whatsoever (and by that I mean that the person was being touchy-feely, or speaking in disrespectful manner).

@ Daria- Didn't you find it interesting in the above article that RH says, he gets nervous when he speaks? I mean he is a famous actor- I find that somewhat reassuring. Of course anybody who had to speak in front of The Queen, and Queen Mother would be nervous too.
*1- You and me both!
*2- They don't- I think they'd bat an eyelash if it were otherwise- not even Prince Phillip cares! And if someone dare bat an eyelash- H.M. gives them a stern look. RH does not care- just keeps right on going.
*3- I saw her handle this exact situation on a You Tube video. She just sent the little boy over to sit on RH's lap, and have lunch! Problem solved!
*4- Agreed! That is where a bodyguard can come in handy too.....

I would be nervous if I had to speak in front of an audience, royalty, or not, so I can undetstand Mr. Hardy. Speaking in front of a live audience is different than speaking in front of a camera, because with the latter you have a chance of a re-do (unless you're going live). I'm glad Her Majesty and His Highness are so understanding, and make sure that everyone is comfortable and happy. Says a great deal about them as people, and I love that the Queen knew where the distressed little one needed to be. I'd love to see the video of that incident.

It's OK if you can't find it. I understand. I do appreciate your help though.

I remember seeing that picture at the time of the event. Thank you so much for posting it again. Bet everyone enjoyed themselves. I love Charles Dickens' works.

The Queen Mother was also one of my favorite Royals- and Robert Hardy is my favorite actor on the planet- so put them together- I would think I have died, and gone to heaven!
( BTW, just sent you a friend request!)

I'll never understand why royals are so fascinated with celebrities. All well and good to be entertained, but it's as if they bypass ordinary people who have solid honest jobs and prefer people who sell themselves, just because they have a lot of money. As if in fact mney makes a person much better.

Why not socialize with the aristocrats, business people, or people who work at their charities where they are patrons? Mette Marit has more than enough time to jet set to London and spend more time at a party than with entertainers than they do with one engagement. The royals are just being used for social kudos/cachet and it's just degrading to see so much priority given to entertainers, when people who are hard workers are just given attention long enough to count as an engagement.

It's a shame mainly because a lot of the charity workers would be a lot more giving and a lot better influence.

I do not know about Mette Marit, but I read several books about Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip, and a lot of times (please correct me if I am wrong!) it seems neither she nor her husband has any "control" over who they meet. Or maybe I am just jealous that I haven't met the Queen yet LOL!!!!!
