The Oscar-Winning "Queen" to be Invited to Tea with the Real Queen

Helen Mirren, who won the best actress Oscar for playing Queen Elizabeth II in "The Queen," may be invited to tea with the real queen.


Playing the role of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in "The Queen" is an honor. Helen Mirren does it very well that the role successfully wins her a Best Actress Oscar at the 79th annual awards show Sunday Feb 25th. Greater than all, the role would probably bring the senior actress to meet the real Queen.

A Buckingham Palace rep confirmed Monday Feb 26th that the Oscar-winning queen is likely to be invited to tea with the real Queen. Prior to the confirmation, however, the film's director, Stephen Frears, has already suggested that he, Mirren and screenwriter Peter Morgan would visit the queen at the palace next month.

"It is speculation but we are looking at a number of options," a Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said in a statement adding that "the queen will be pleased" about Mirren's big win at Oscars.

"The Queen" is a drama flick retells the aftermath of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, in a car crash 10 years ago. Accepting her award Sunday, the 61-year-old Mirren saluted the Queen for maintaining "her dignity, her sense of duty, and her hairstyle" and acknowledged, "If it wasn't for her, I most, most certainly would not be here."
