Did you know that His Royal Highness Prince Charles enjoyed acting when he was a young man? You learn something new every day, my Grandmother telling me that, following the Prince of Wales surprise appearance on RSC’s Shakespeare Live!
Adding to the BBC’s stellar line up of British acting royalty, but the surprise appearance of HRH alongside David Tennant, Dame Judi Dench, Sir Ian McKellan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paapa Essiedu and more in tackling the acting dilemma to how to deliver Hamlet’s “to be or not to be” speech. Many stressed different interpretations of what word to stress, some even bringing out a skull. Oh poor Yorick.
