Oliver Burton has cancer for the third time in his ten short years, and doctors are not optimistic.
So the brave little boy made a dying wish- to meet Queen Elizabeth II. But the Queen doesn't do that sort of thing.
Fortunately, The Queen does!
Dame Helen Mirren, who is currently playing Elizabeth in the play The Audience, invited Oliver and his family backstage!
They had tea and played with corgis, and Helen never once broke character! Later she said:
"It was a pleasure and a privilege to meet such a brave young man."
Aww! What an amazing person!
Maybe it's just us, but we'd rather meet Helen Mirren as Helen Mirren!
