Reason number 352 why Helen Mirren is awesome.
Helen Mirren is fantastic and we all know it. It’s not a secret (nor has it ever been), but she’s really outdone herself this time. A 10-year-old boy who is battling cancer wished to have tea with the Queen at Buckingham Palace.
I’m not sure why this didn’t happen, but Helen wasn’t allowed to let it go down like that, so she invited him backstage at The Audience and, dressed as the Queen, had tea and introduced the kid to her corgis.
