The Queen meeting Lady Gaga at the 2009 Royal Variety Performance (Sky News)

The Queen and Prince Phillip are to miss this years Royal Variety Performance with Prince Phillip saying he is tired of the annual extravaganza and The Queen not wishing to attend without her Husband.


The Queen and Prince Phillip have in recent years been alternating with Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess Of Cornwall but despite only having to endure the several hours of performances every two years it seems it is still too much for Prince Phillip who has never hid his dislike of the event.





Although The Queen missing the event is considered unusual since her accession to the throne she has only missed the event twice in 1991 and 1992 it is considered understandable considering the long trek to Salford the new HQ for the BBC as well as the advancing ages of both The Queen and Prince Phillip


The event will instead be attended by Princess Anne which will this year be presented by Peter Kay on December 5th.
