These Days People Want the Grand Performance

So said the Queen in the movie The Queen, where the Queen was played by someone who was a Queen for a day.

Enough articles and uses of the word “Queen” for now?

Well, today Helen Mirren makes her first appearance on my blog.  Today she was Queen of Harvard, receiving the Hasty Pudding Theatrical award for Woman of the Year.  Receiving the award involves being paraded through the streets of Cambridge like a true Queen, which Ms. Mirren is.  May I also add that she’s much more elegant than the Queen she played and was very gracious to everyone.

Here she is being escorted by an entourage of queens (small letter):
