Helen Mirren: I’ll marry William and Kate
Dame Helen Mirren is considering dressing up as the Archbishop of Canterbury so she can marry Britain’s Prince William and Kate Middleton.
The couple will tie the knot on April 29 at Westminster Abbey in London, and excitement about the nuptials has reached fever pitch across the globe. Helen is one of those who is looking forward to the wedding, but can’t believe she hasn’t received an invite. She would like to see the ceremony first hand, so has joked she might take drastic action.
“I wasn't invited. I tried bribing people, I even tried finding a way in over the back of the Abbey,” she laughed.
“I've even tried to get myself an Archbishop of Canterbury outfit because I thought I might kidnap him and do the actual ceremony, because I do a lot of these gender-bending roles.”
A lot has been made of William’s decision to marry his partner of around eight years as she comes from a regular background. The pair met at university, and the marriage is unusual as royals often marry members of the aristocracy. Helen insists too much is being made of Kate’s background though, and thinks she’s a great partner for the prince.
“I've got a good feeling about Kate because she's a working class girl,” she told talk show host Jimmy Fallon.
