Just reading an article in the Daily Mail by its Showbusiness reporter Liz Thomas. Seems quite extraordinary - unless, of course, it's one of those planted stories from a newsagency to check how assiduous newsrooms are at checking stories!
Anyway, anyway. Liz Thomas reports that the Queen and Prince Philip "astonished West End theatregoers by slipping in quietly to see a play - without any sign of bodyguards or aides. The house lights had already gone down at the performance of War Horse and the show was about to start when the Queen, wearing a dark green dress, and her husband shuffled into their seats, muttering apologies.... one member of the audience said she was shocked when she realised who the latecomers were".
It set us thinking - have you ever found yourself sitting next to someone you would least expect to see at the theatre/cinema/show? What would you say if the Queen sat next to you?
