Helen Mirren has promoted her involvement with The Prince’s Trust and its upcoming awards ceremony on today’s Good Morning Britain. She also talked about the pressure on young actors today because of the scrutiny of social media – so it’s quite telling that GMB chose to go with “Helen Mirren ” as their video headline. Go figure! Mirren explained it’s been amusing to run into the family since The Queen was released, and that Harry and William, in particular, seem to enjoy the oddness of it all. She said, “Prince Charles is very, very tactful. Harry and William have mentioned it to me and have been very funny and very cool about it.” Harry, she noted, likes to make jokes about it: “I think Harry once said, when I was at an awards ceremony, he said, ‘And Granny is here.’” How does Mirren feel about being called acting royalty? Of her reaction when faced with that description, she said, “Maybe for the first one second and then very quickly I disabuse them of that fact!” Screencaptures from the programme have been added to the photo gallery and the video has been archived as well.
