Helen Mirren as the Queen pulls a semi-LuPone...

Helen Mirren shouts at people disrupting her performance as the Queen. How the real Queen must wish she could do the same Dame Helen Mirren silenced a crowd of drummers promoting a gay music festival.

So often has she played the monarch now that it can be difficult to tell the two apart, or even to expect Dame Helen’s mannerisms to be replicated by the Queen. However, it is unlikely that Her Majesty, hosting a garden party at Buckingham Palace, for instance, would have remonstrated with people on the street outside for making a racket. On Saturday, Dame Helen stormed out of her West End theatre, where she is starring as the Queen in Stephen Daldry’s play The Audience, and in full costume told a bunch of street drummers to pipe down, which they duly did, offering profuse apologies. “She just stomped out and shouted 'Quiet’,” said one of the drummers. Sometimes, the Queen must wish she could do the same.
