In a recent interview, Julie also opened up about meeting the late Queen Elizabeth II. She said, “I met her and I sang for her at two Royal Command Performances for Her Majesty for a very, very good cause. The first one I did when I was 13. … I was honored to be made a Dame by her (in 2000), which was quite extraordinary. I have really lovely memories and I’m a great royalist. She worked so very, very hard and was very dedicated.”
