Last Thursday night [16th June], Gary Williams had the honour of performing at Buckingham Palace for the His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales. The evening was a formal ‘thank you’ to the American supporters of The Prince’s Trust charity. Celebrity guests.
Backed by John Wilson and his Orchestra, Gary sang a selection of songs from the MGM musicals. He was joined by singer Kim Criswell for ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’ and ‘That’s Entertainment’.
Gary said, “the whole evening was a great thrill! Straight after the concert we were introduced to Charles, Camilla and some of the guests, including Michael Caine and Joan Rivers, who were great fun! They gave us beautiful rooms to change in at the front of the palace – so our view was through the gates out at the tourists on the other side – we even had balconies, but managed to resist the temptation to wave!”
It’s a busy time for Gary. The following day he flew to Dublin for a sell-out Dean Martin tribute concert with the RTE Orchestra and from there to Italy to join Crystal Cruises, then back to London for the Royal Garden Hotel. Grimsby Evening Telegraph
