There must be silence for Her Majesty.

Especially when Her Majesty is appearing on stage.

Some street drummers were busking outside the Gielgud Theatre in London’s West End when Helen Mirren stormed out of the theatre, dressed as Queen Elizabeth, to berate them for disrupting her show.

Mirren continues to give her award-winning performance in The Audience, a drama about the weekly meetings between the queen and her prime ministers.

Mirren told the Daily Telegraph newspaper that she used less-than-royal language in her rant at the drummers during Saturday’s intermission.

She said, “I felt rotten, but on the other hand they were destroying our performance so something had to be done.”

The drummers were promoting a gay music festival. A spokesman apologized for upsetting Dame Helen.
