Veteran pop star Donny Osmond left a big impression on British royal Prince PHILIP when he performed at this year's (03) ROYAL VARIETY PERFORMANCE - thanks to his youthful hair colouring.

The former child star, 45, was delighted when the husband of Queen ELIZABETH II sought him out after the musical extravaganza last month (NOV03) and was amused to discover that the Prince was in awe of his brunette locks.

Donny laughs, "Prince Philip, after shaking my hand, said, 'Will someone please give some grey hair to this kid!' I guess that was a compliment."
