Queen meets Narnia stars in snow


The Queen meets Liam Neeson at the Royal premiere of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh braved the snow to attend the Royal Film Performance of The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader.

The Queen donned a pair of 3D glasses to watch the film – the third of the fantasy series based on the children’s novels by C S Lewis – in London’s Leicester Square.

The wintry weather in the Square mimicked that of the first Narnia film, The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe, and snow fell on the heads of stars who arrived on the red carpet.

The Queen, who was wearing a long-sleeved blue evening gown trimmed with shimmering crystals, arrived with the Duke of Edinburgh in their burgundy Bentley.

She met the film’s stars and last year’s X Factor winner Joe McElderry, who sings on the film’s soundtrack.

McElderry said: “I respect the Royal Family very much, so to meet the Queen was fantastic.

“The song is a big epic ballad, it’s a really emotional song.

“I sang it to the crowd outside and it went down really well.”

The film, directed by Michael Apted, features 15-year-old Georgie Henley, from Ilkley, West Yorkshire, who plays Lucy Pevensie, and Skandar Keynes, 19, who plays Edmund Pevensie.

Georgie curtsied to the Queen and said: “It is lovely to meet you, Ma’am.”
