Helen Mirren could not make her appointment with the Queen as she was filming in South somewhere or other. Darn it girl, you are in charge here - give yourself a few days leave!! The Queen summoned you and you "couldn't make it". When interviewed, Ms Mirren was not at all perturbed by her lack of "royal ettiquette" and had little to say except:
"As I have won an Oscar, (Ms Mirren kissing her golden statue), I do not think it is necessary to grovel at anyone's feet, including that of the queen and having tea with her will not achieve further fame. I am the Queen!" Helen Mirren's rather boastful approach to winning an Oscar and snubbing the queen will not gain her access to the Nobel Prize ceremony or an invitation to the Human Rights Association. Ms Mirren was later seen dashing off to continue filming, yelling at the top of her voice, "I am QUEEN of the world!"
Will she receive another invitation soon? I wouldn't invite you Helen Mirren. I may be a 'queen' but I am definitely not "the Queen".
