Lilly Langtry, actress, & lover of King Edward VII
As well as presenting Doris Visits and playing Doris Shades in Shades Of Bad I have a one woman show; Royal Mistresses. I actually perform many Royal Mistress characters and also have a historical rundown of their background including films. I have found the places where they got up to whatever they did!
Rules Restaurant in London
Lillie Langtry is famous and focussed on the highlife. In this first film I visit London to specifically find places where she met with King Edward VII and I discover one of London’s oldest restaurants that is still open for business. Rules Restaurant. Amazingly they let me film and helped me with information. I could not have been more excited. The film also includes the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.
Lillie plays Edinburgh
I also took a trip to Edinburgh and whilst the film is also a quick tour of that cruise port, Lillie also played there. She was so popular with the audiences that the students would shout for her return at any point in the play when her character was not on stage!
King Edward VII pretends to play golf at the Royal Cromer Golf Club
Finally a place which is definitely not a cruise port, Cromer. Here I visit to find where Lillie went and stayed with the King while he pretended to be playing golf. I discover the Hotel that he is claimed to have used on the sea front and another one inland.
I also discover an interesting story about Winston Churchill. Cromer was a very famous English seaside town, it has a pier and a fantastic beach.
For actress Jean Heard’s one woman show, she can be booked via Jennie Storr at The Speaker’s Agency. Click here for page.
Jean performs on a number of the cruise ships. If you have never cruised, and we are mainly a cruise site, then click here to see how to look at what cruising is.
Why not have a look at the LATE DEALS over a coffee from your arm chair? Doris Visits allows you to SEE THE CRUISE BEFORE YOU CRUISE THE SEA. We have videos of many of the cruise stops you might make from Miami to Tahiti, from Bruges to St Maarten. Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter and share.
