He appeared quite often in the annual Royal Performance produced for the British Royal Family.

I wonder what the Queen Mother had said.

Oh yes... Such a pity...
I guess that the Queen Mother would have said:

"When you old queens stop gossiping down there, this old queen up here needs a drink."

So, he went up (to heaven) to get her drink.

And the Queen Mother said: Delicious !

Great pic, haha
I thought she was more gin & tonic but I was obviously mistaken (grin)

Simply gorgeous picture Nellie, of a simply gorgeous lady. I think this is what endeared the Queen Mother to so many people - she was just so natural and at ease in every situation.

I couldn't believe how young Ken Dodd is in that first pic. you posted. Couldn't see his "tickling stick" though! :lol:

This comic picture was taken during the Prince of Wales' 60th birthday gala. Eric Idle, of Monty Python fame, appeared on stage dressed as you can see and sang the famous "The Bright Side of Life" song.

He altered the third verse, though, and it went like this:

"When you're sixty years of age
and your Mum won't leave the stage
it's good to know that you're still Prince of Wales!"

Needless to say it was a huge success!

Here's another nice one: Princess Margaret at the peak of her beauty and the Beatles at the beginning of their fame.

June 1960 in Hollywood.

Elvis Presley takes a break from shooting G.I. Blues at Paramount Pictures Studios to meet with princesses Margrethe of Denmark, Astrid of Norway, and Margaretha of Sweden (l-r).


The picture is from the Bettmann Corbis Archives.

One wonders what Groucho Marx's cousin is doing behind the Queen.

Very funny, Octavius and thank you for a glorious set of entertainers with royals.

Sabbatical - you have posted a pic I was trying to find.
It's a good one of a moment most royals are warned against being caught doing, I think.

Here is Princess Anne meeting some Pearly Kings and Queens.

Here is myself (grin) greeting Princess Alexandra, haha
