Status Quo rocker RICK PARFITT was proud to meet British monarch Queen Elizabeth II, even though she had no idea who he was. The SWEET CAROLINE guitarist recalls the Queen was so amazed when she found out Status Quo had been performing for four decades, she forgot she had been married to her husband, Prince Philip, for 59 years. Parfitt says, "The Queen's lovely. She's always had this beautiful smile. She was so pretty. I still think she is. "She said, 'You've been together 40 years? Crikey, that's longer than I've been with Philip.'"
