Patricia Ford - The Queen Lookalike | London(no reviews)
Based In: London
The Fake Queen is happy to attend:
I am more than happy to read out a speech you have prepared. Please note that I am not a professional 'soundalike'.
I occasionally open a charity fete, giving my services free.
Please let me know of any special occasion that you have in mind and I will do my best to fit in appropriately.
I began impersonating the Queen after strangers started commenting on my likeness to her. I joined several agencies and have worked at many different locations over the past 11 years. I thoroughly enjoy all I am asked to do, and I try my hardest to dress and act as impeccably as Queen Elizabeth II does. I am always happy to read out a prepared speech, although I do not profess to sound exactly like the Queen.
I will consider any kind of engagement, at any distance, and my fee will vary on the times I am needed to attend, both in terms of duration and lateness of the hour. I do not charge tr ... avelling expenses (although I would need a plane ticket provided!!) My normal charge is £500, but additions or reductions can apply, depending on distance, time of day, length of duty etc. Please contact me, however vague your plans are. It's useful to have a chat.
I have auditioned for the TV series Double Take and have appeared in a comedy sketch show on Welsh TV. I appeared on a recent Basement Jaxx CD. I appear at many different functions such as Champagne evenings, theme park occasions, charity openings and private parties.
I think you will find that I am a very amenable, patient and cheerful 'Queen', happy to enhance your particular function.
Please contact me. I shall look forward to hearing from you.
Filming for the Sun newspaper today was great fun; perhaps it'll be shown on YouTube.

My latest wedding invitation was an absolute joy - lovely guests, superbly organised and made me wish I could do it all over again.............
I did enjoy being with the whole Roy ... al Family to make a short video clip for Visit Britain. We really let our hair down!
Attending a grand function at Gleneagles Hotel in Scotland, with so many different nationalities involved, was a great honour, accompanied by Pippa Middleton, Daniel Craig and Sean Connery (almost them............)
Was welcomed enthusiastically at Stratford Town Hall at a function to thank all the people who had volunteered so magnificently for the Olympics.
Delighted to join Theo Paphitis in a sketch; particularly enjoyed the ride in his swish comfortable car. A very likeable gentleman.
Such fun to be in Wallsend and wander round the shopping mall (more shoppers than shops, almost) and talk to so many friendly people. A good sense of humour goes a long way in a conversation!
The Jubilee photograph, in front of the marvellous cake, was taken by the marvellous David Hodgkinson Photography.
Like the Queen with her Jubilee days all round the country, I have continued travelling up and down endless motorways, thankfully broken by going to New York for 2 days to attend a private party.

BBCTV and ITV have been shooting me at home preparing for an engagement, and then following me on my visit to a local Home.
The Diamond Jubilee Year is proving extremely busy; all sorts of celebrations are incorporating the Queen and I am enjoying meeting so many people. Trentham Gardens was a marvellous place to visit and I was welcomed in the Shopping Mall. The following day I went to Marlowes Shopping Centre in Hemel Hempstead and enjoyed joining in the fun with the children's activities. Then it was up to Wakefield to The Ridings Shopping Centre where the Yorkshire shoppers were so welcoming and generous; the Yorkshire Market really impressed me. The stallholders are fantastically talented people.
Saga magazine are featuring me soon.

Have spent a very happy few days at the Gaming Show at Earls Court with a nice bunch of New Zealanders......who seemed content that I added to the success of their stand.

Just back from visiting three restaurants in the same chain in Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds. I can highly recommend them - superb food and decor, with such friendly and attentive staff, who produce wonderful varied meals.
The children at a Birmingham School welcomed me to tell them about my life and to ask lots of questions. They were so well behaved and a real credit to the school and their parents.
The week of the Royal Wedding has been really busy; I visited Homes in Lancashire and Yorkshire and was pleased to celebrate with them. I visited the Goodyear Blimp (airship) in Essex and experienced flying in that marvellous machine. Then on The Day I was in Bucklebury and was interviewed live on the breakfast shows on BBC1 and ITV, and by Australian TV for their 5pm News coverage. Later on the green at Chapel Row I joined in the festivities and was interviewed live by just about every newspaper in the country and by countless worldwide TV stations. Rex Images and PA also photographed me, and Birmingham Radio subsequently telephoned for an inclusion in Danny's programme.
