Queen welcomes acting royalty at Buckingham Palace

Real royalty comes face-to-face with acting royalty at the Reception for the Dramatic Arts held by Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace. Present were Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and director of "12 Years A Slave" Steve McQueen, fresh from his BAFTA wins the night before. BAFTA fellow, Dame Hellen Mirren, who has portrayed the queen twice, both on the silver screen and on stage, had some apologetic words for the Queen. SOUNDBITE: Actress and BAFTA Fellow, Helen Mirren, saying (English) "I feel like saying "I'm so sorry Ma'am, and I promise you I will stop soon," you know. It's my job and I'm asked to do it." Among the 250 guests were an assortment of other British stars, including Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes, and former 007 Roger Moore. Hollywood was represented by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and actress Uma Thurman -- who were treated to a performance of the students of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts of which the Queen is patron.
