Prince William Steps in For Queen at Investiture Ceremony

Per BBC royal correspondent, Peter Hunt, the Queen pulled out of today’s investiture ceremony at the last minute due to “minor discomfort” in her ankle. In her place, Prince William knighted 67-year-old comedian and actor, Tony Robinson. Apparently Sir Robinson got the future monarch to agree to a cameo in Blackadder if it ever were brought back for a new season. From the BBC:

“I said to him ‘would you be prepared to be in it?’ He said ‘yes’ like a shot,” Sir Tony said.

“I managed to do a bit of casting while he was awarding my knighthood. I think that is probably a first,” he added.
