London: Dame Helen Mirren fulfilled the wish of a fatally ill young boy, who wanted to meet Queen Elizabeth, by dressing up like the British monarch.

Visiting the Queen at Buckingham Palace topped Oliver Burton`s list of dream activities, but his family was told a meeting would not be possible, the Sun reported.

After Mirren came to know that the 10-year-old cancer patient may have just weeks to live and was unable to meet the real Queen at Buckingham Palace, she invited him to see her London play `The Audience`.

The 67-year-old actress then met the boy backstage while being in character at the `Gielgud Theatre`.
