Helen Mirren grants wish for dying boy

The Queen of England is a bitch. It’s not a secret. So, would she grant a dying kid’s wish to have tea at Buckingham Palace? It’s unlikely, but Oliver Burton got the next best thing. The 10-year-old has Down’s syndrome and was recently diagnosed with terminal spine and bone marrow cancer. Burton wanted to meet royalty. So, a few charities organized to have Helen Mirren step in. Mirren dressed in full costume and stayed in character the entire time. The two enjoyed tea and sandwiches. Burton’s parents say their son thought she was Queen Elizabeth II and it was a dream come true for a little boy who may only have weeks to live. Mirren deserved the Oscar for her role in the movie “The Queen.” She just topped that performance. Bravo!
