CAMELOT had its Broadway premiere at the Majestic Theatre this day 56 years ago on 3 December, 1960. In honour here is a rare pic of a backstage visit paid by one Queen to another.
“NEW YORK A Pair of Queens: Farah (L) of Iran and Julie Andrews, the Guenevere of Broadway’s CAMELOT, get together backstage after a performance of the hit musical. The Iranian Queen was in New York while the Shah was touring US military bases. Note ‘royal’ similarity in position of hands.” (UPI TELEPHOTO, 15 Apr. 1962).
tbh the most emotional part of the entire five seasons of merlin was when the beginning changed from ‘the destiny of a great kingdom rests on the shoulders of a young boy’ to 'the destiny of a great kingdom rests on the shoulders of a young man’
