Hang on a minute. It's my turn to go first.

0:00:550:00:58

-I won the last game. The winner goes first.

-You went first last time.

0:00:580:01:02

-Because I won the time before that.

-Hmm.

0:01:020:01:04

-I think we should take it in turns.

-We are. It's your turn, come on.

0:01:040:01:08

0:02:090:02:15

Look, there's the dressing up room.

0:02:150:02:18

# Let's play! #

0:02:180:02:20

This is really exciting.

0:02:200:02:22

Let's find out what we're playing today.

0:02:220:02:25

Wow! I've got a firefighter's helmet, a caveperson's outfit

0:02:300:02:33

and clown shoes?!

0:02:330:02:35

That can't be right. Let's try something else.

0:02:350:02:38

Wow! Now, this is more like it! So, what are we playing today?

0:02:420:02:48

Well, I'm wearing an outfit fit for a king!

0:02:480:02:52

We're going to play Kings and Queens.

0:02:520:02:55

Hello. I'm King Sid. I could get used to this!

0:02:550:03:00

So, what do we need to know?

0:03:000:03:02

Royal palaces are very big and have many hundreds of rooms.

0:03:030:03:07

A palace sometimes has a swimming pool, a helicopter landing pad,

0:03:070:03:12

a doctor's surgery and even its very own post office.

0:03:120:03:16

The king or queen of a country is called a monarch.

0:03:160:03:19

Important people from around the world come to visit them

0:03:190:03:22

and sometimes bring unusual gifts, even live animals.

0:03:220:03:26

The animals are always given away to a nice safe home.

0:03:260:03:30

When a monarch attends a posh dinner, people usually don't

0:03:300:03:35

start eating until the monarch picks up his or her knife and fork.

0:03:350:03:40

So, that's everything we need to remember. Do we need anything else?

0:03:410:03:45

Wow! A stick with lots of jewels on.

0:03:470:03:50

Well, I have no idea what this is for,

0:03:500:03:53

but it looks pretty kingly to me. I'm sure it will come in useful.

0:03:530:03:57

We've got everything we need. Let's go!

0:03:570:04:00

-Rebecca, can you guess what we're playing today?

-Wow!

0:04:020:04:08

-Are you playing a prince?

-No. I'm a king, King Sidney.

0:04:080:04:13

-From now on, I'm in charge.

-You most certainly are. You look amazing!

0:04:130:04:19

-Very smart.

-Thank you. Wish me luck.

-Good luck, Your Majesty.

0:04:190:04:24

Come on, let's play Kings and Queens.

0:04:270:04:30

Whoa! Wee!

0:04:330:04:36

So, where are we? Ah! This looks like a palace. But is it our palace?

0:04:410:04:48

Oh, look. Here comes a guard. Let's ask him.

0:04:480:04:51

-Excuse me.

-Yeah.

-Can I ask you something?

0:04:510:04:56

Oh! Yes, Your Majesty! Your Highness!

0:04:560:05:00

I wasn't expecting a royal visit today.

0:05:000:05:03

-We're very honoured to have you, sir.

-Yeah, hi.

0:05:030:05:06

Is there anyone home?

0:05:060:05:09

-Yes, sir. Look at the roof, sir.

-Right... I'm looking at the roof.

0:05:090:05:13

Looks like a roof to me. Why would I look at the roof?

0:05:130:05:15

-Is the king up there?

-The flag, sir. The flag is flying.

0:05:150:05:19

In this palace, if the flag is flying,

0:05:190:05:22

it means the monarch is at home.

0:05:220:05:24

-So the king is home.

-No, the queen, sir.

0:05:240:05:27

The queen's at home. Let's go and see her.

0:05:270:05:29

-Thanks very much.

-You're very welcome, Your Highness.

0:05:290:05:32

Any time I can be of assistance, Your Highn...

0:05:320:05:35

Oh. Oh, he's gone.

0:05:350:05:38

Oh, well. Never mind.

0:05:380:05:40

Excuse me again. Oh, sorry. You look exactly like...

0:05:460:05:51

The...

0:05:510:05:54

-Never mind.

-I did not know we had a royal visitor today.

0:05:540:05:57

How may I be of service?

0:05:570:06:00

Thank you. I was wondering how to get inside the palace.

0:06:000:06:04

-It's a very big place.

-Yes, it is, sir.

0:06:040:06:06

We have over 100 rooms in this palace.

0:06:060:06:09

100 rooms?! Wow! What does the queen need all those for?

0:06:090:06:13

There's one for eating, the dining room, one for sleeping,

0:06:130:06:17

the bedroom, and one for watching TV, the TV room.

0:06:170:06:21

-I suppose there's one for standing around and thinking.

-Yes, sir.

0:06:210:06:24

-The standing around and thinking room.

-Oh.

0:06:240:06:27

-I suppose sir would be wanting to go inside?

-Yes.

0:06:270:06:31

-Sir would like to do that very much.

-Well, you will find the queen inside.

0:06:310:06:35

-She's having her portrait painted.

-Ooh, I'd like to meet the queen.

0:06:350:06:39

If you just go through there, you will find her.

0:06:390:06:43

-Have a jolly good stay now.

-Everyone's so polite around here.

0:06:430:06:46

-Thanks a lot. Bye-sy bye.

-Bye-sy bye, sir.

0:06:460:06:49

Wow! Look at this place. Pretty fancy, or what?

0:06:530:06:57

Wow! These are great. Look at that vase!

0:06:590:07:02

Oh, hello, Mr Knight in Shining Armour.

0:07:020:07:04

I have to say, I'm feeling rather kingly in this royal outfit.

0:07:040:07:08

I wonder what's in here then. Probably loads more cool stuff.

0:07:110:07:15

Oh, hello. It's the queen.

0:07:150:07:18

-Your Majesty. How lovely to meet you.

-Ew, hellew!

0:07:210:07:26

Luh-ly to mee-you too.

0:07:260:07:28

-Pardon?

-I said, how luh-ly to mee-you too.

0:07:280:07:32

-I can't understand what she's saying.

-I am sorry.

0:07:320:07:35

I can't move my lips because I'm having my portrait painted.

0:07:350:07:39

-I've got to keep awfully still.

-Eh? Oh! Right!

0:07:390:07:43

And relax, please, Your Majesty.

0:07:430:07:46

Oh! Thank you! That's much better.

0:07:460:07:49

-Oh, jolly nice to meet you!

-Hello.

0:07:490:07:52

I still can't understand you, though.

0:07:520:07:55

-Oh, that's because I'm ver-posh!

-Oh! Right.

0:07:550:07:58

-And who might you be?

-I'm King Sid.

-Jolly nice to meet you, King Sid.

0:07:580:08:04

It's so nice to meet another royal person. One meets so few.

0:08:040:08:09

Yes. I must say, you're looking very nice with your crown and outfit.

0:08:090:08:13

Thank you ver-much.

0:08:130:08:15

One has to look one's best when one is having one's portrait painted.

0:08:150:08:19

One has one's orb. The trouble is one appears to have lost one's sceptre.

0:08:190:08:26

-Sceptre? What's a sceptre?

-Kind of like a wand. It's made of gold.

0:08:260:08:32

Just like one's jolly old orb here.

0:08:320:08:35

The orb and the sceptre, they rather go together.

0:08:350:08:38

And whilst having one's portrait painted,

0:08:380:08:41

it's very bad form not to have them both.

0:08:410:08:45

Oh. Hold on.

0:08:450:08:47

I think this might be a sceptre. Yes, I think it is.

0:08:470:08:51

Your Majesty, you can have this, if you like.

0:08:510:08:54

Really? Oh, thanks awfully!

0:08:540:08:57

-That's all right. There you go.

-Oh. This is a good one, yes.

0:08:570:09:01

Good sceptre.

0:09:010:09:03

I'm with Her Majesty now. Over and out.

0:09:030:09:06

Hello, Your Majesty. Sorry to bother you.

0:09:060:09:09

How is the portrait coming along? Are you finished yet?

0:09:090:09:13

No, she's still working on my head. I think I'll be here a little longer.

0:09:130:09:18

Oh. Oh, dear.

0:09:180:09:20

Oh, no. what seems to be the problem? Maybe I can help.

0:09:200:09:23

-And you are?

-Sid.

0:09:230:09:25

-No, I don't seem to have a Sid on my list.

-Try King Sid.

0:09:300:09:34

King Sid?! Oh! Why didn't you say so, Your Majesty?

0:09:340:09:38

-How lovely to meet you.

-Charmed, I'm sure.

0:09:380:09:42

The thing is, I have a whole list of official duties for the queen

0:09:420:09:46

to do, all of which must be done today.

0:09:460:09:49

And the queen can't do them, because she's having her portrait painted.

0:09:490:09:52

-Precisely.

-OK, that's easy. I'll do them for her.

-You?!

0:09:520:09:57

-I mean, "you", Your Majesty? Are you sure?

-Yes.

0:09:570:10:01

I'm feeling in a kingly mood today.

0:10:010:10:04

Well, you can start off by doing the royal post,

0:10:040:10:06

and then I have a couple of hundred other things for you to do.

0:10:060:10:10

-There's a lot to do.

-If you'd like to get started on the royal post,

0:10:100:10:13

I'll see you in a tick.

0:10:130:10:15

The royal post?! I don't even know what that means!

0:10:160:10:20

Where am I supposed to go next? I don't want to let the queen down.

0:10:200:10:25

Oh! Yes! I know!

0:10:250:10:27

I remember! Do you?

0:10:270:10:31

Sometimes palaces are so big, they have their very own post office.

0:10:310:10:35

That's where we need to go. We need to find the post office.

0:10:350:10:39

-See you later, Your Majesty.

-Hmm? What? Oh! OK! Thanks awfully!

0:10:390:10:44

Hmm, what a jolly nice chap!

0:10:440:10:47

Right, so this must be the royal post office.

0:10:490:10:53

Oh, she gets a lot of letters.

0:10:530:10:55

I haven't had this much post in my whole life.

0:10:550:10:59

And this is just today's.

0:10:590:11:01

So, you found your way here. Good, good.

0:11:010:11:05

First, I need you to sign all of these birthday letters.

0:11:050:11:09

Right, OK. So she's sending all these ones?

0:11:090:11:12

Who gets a letter from the queen on their birthday?

0:11:120:11:15

Sometimes, people who are 100 years old are lucky enough to get

0:11:150:11:18

a special letter on their birthday.

0:11:180:11:20

Oh! 100 years old! Wow! That's a lot of candles on your birthday cake!

0:11:200:11:25

-< Special delivery!

-Oh, no! What now?

0:11:250:11:29

-I wonder what that could be.

-What on earth is this?

0:11:290:11:32

Oops.

0:11:320:11:35

One parrot. Now who on earth would want to send something like this?

0:11:370:11:41

It says it's from the president of Birdland.

0:11:410:11:44

His name is Henry, and he likes to eat birdseed.

0:11:440:11:47

Who's a pretty boy, then?

0:11:470:11:50

-Good morning, Your Highness.

-Oh! He talks!

0:11:500:11:53

-Nice crown, Your Highness.

-Ha-ha! Brilliant!

0:11:530:11:58

A parrot! What on earth are we going to do with this now?

0:11:580:12:03

Oh. Well, a parrot is a nice gift. But a queen doesn't need a parrot.

0:12:030:12:08

What are we going to do? Oh, I know! I remember, do you?

0:12:080:12:13

Important people sometimes give unusual gifts to a monarch,

0:12:130:12:18

even live animals.

0:12:180:12:19

But they're given away to a nice home where they'll be taken care of.

0:12:190:12:22

-That'll be nice, Your Highness.

-All right, Henry.

0:12:220:12:25

We'll find you a nice home.

0:12:250:12:27

No, a parrot. Not a carrot!

0:12:280:12:31

You can take it? Great! That's wonderful news!

0:12:310:12:35

I'll send it right over. And maybe I'll send over some carrots!

0:12:350:12:40

Hello?

0:12:400:12:42

-So what's the news?

-The bird sanctuary have a home for a parrot.

0:12:430:12:48

They were looking for one of just this type.

0:12:480:12:50

-Especially a talky little bird like you!

-You look lovely, Your Highness.

0:12:500:12:54

-I'm going to miss you, parrot.

-I'm not sure I will.

0:12:540:12:58

That voice is going right through my head.

0:12:580:13:02

Well done, King Sid. You've done a royally terrific job.

0:13:020:13:05

-Thank you.

-It's coming up to one o'clock.

0:13:050:13:09

-I think it's time for the royal banquet.

-Yummy!

0:13:090:13:13

I'm looking forward to some tasty treats!

0:13:130:13:15

Maybe they'll have some carrots!

0:13:150:13:18

PHONE RINGS

0:13:180:13:20

Hello?

0:13:200:13:21

So then the parrot said to me, "Nice crown, Your Highness!"

0:13:240:13:28

-It was so funny!

-And was it?

-What?

-A nice crown?

0:13:280:13:33

Yes, it was the one I was wearing,

0:13:330:13:35

-but what was funny was that the parrot had said it.

-Yes. How lovely.

0:13:350:13:41

Anyway, we can't sit here having fun all day. It's lunchtime. Yum-yum.

0:13:410:13:47

Here goes.

0:13:470:13:49

Ahem.

0:13:490:13:51

AHEM!

0:13:510:13:53

Urm... One welcomes everyone and I...

0:13:530:13:57

One would like to extend a particularly warm welcome

0:13:570:14:02

to our special guest of honour...

0:14:020:14:04

I'm sorry, I've forgotten your name.

0:14:060:14:08

SHE WHISPERS

0:14:080:14:11

Of course. The President of Ladyland.

0:14:110:14:14

APPLAUSE

0:14:140:14:16

Let the feasting begin.

0:14:160:14:19

Let the feasting begin.

0:14:190:14:21

Let the feasting begin!

0:14:220:14:25

Come on, everyone. Get stuck in!

0:14:250:14:28

Oh. What's going on? Why isn't anybody eating their food?

0:14:290:14:33

Do you think there's something wrong with it?

0:14:330:14:36

Oh! I know! I remember! Do you? When a monarch attends a posh dinner,

0:14:360:14:41

people usually don't start eating their food

0:14:410:14:44

until after the monarch has picked up his or her knife and fork.

0:14:440:14:48

Come on, get stuck in.

0:14:510:14:54

Ah, yes. So tell me again about this parrot.

0:14:560:15:00

It said you had a nice crown, but why did it say that, exactly?

0:15:000:15:06

Phoof! Wow! What a day! How have you been getting on, Your Highness?

0:15:130:15:18

It's been jolly tiring, sitting here doing this...all day.

0:15:180:15:24

-But I think the portrait is finally finished.

-Great! You must be pleased.

0:15:240:15:29

-I am. Shall we take a look?

-Yes.

0:15:290:15:32

-Ah!

-Ah!

0:15:440:15:46

-Now, that is...interesting.

-Yes. I was thinking more...

-Unusual?

0:15:460:15:51

Yes, that's the word. Unusual.

0:15:510:15:54

It will go nicely with the others.

0:15:540:15:56

Well, it's been simply wonderful to meet you, King Sid.

0:15:560:16:01

And you've done jolly well doing all my jobs. You really saved the day.

0:16:010:16:06

It was my pleasure. I enjoyed it.

0:16:060:16:08

-And I'd like to give you something to say thank you.

-How kind!

0:16:080:16:12

For you, King Sid.

0:16:120:16:14

-I give you this special medal for all your terribly hard work.

-Wow!

0:16:140:16:20

One has an honour! A medal from the queen! Thank you, Your Majesty.

0:16:200:16:25

Not at all. I actually quite like giving medals.

0:16:250:16:28

Well, it was great fun being a king. We'd never have done it

0:16:280:16:32

without remembering everything we needed to know.

0:16:320:16:36

Monarchs live in royal palaces, and some even have post offices.

0:16:360:16:41

Visitors from around the world sometimes bring unusual gifts,

0:16:430:16:47

even live animals.

0:16:470:16:49

Who's a pretty boy, then?

0:16:490:16:50

The animals are always given to a nice safe home.

0:16:500:16:54

And when a monarch attends a posh dinner,

0:16:540:16:57

people usually don't start eating until the monarch starts.

0:16:570:17:00

Come on, get stuck in.

0:17:000:17:02

Oh! I think it's time one went home.

0:17:080:17:11

-Goodbye, Your Majesty.

-Goodbye, King Sid. Lovely to meet you.

0:17:110:17:15

Oh, not a pair.

0:17:210:17:24

-Oh, neither is that one.

-Hey, Rebecca. Hey, Sid. How did it go?

0:17:240:17:28

Well, if one is honest, one is feeling rather tired.

0:17:280:17:31

"One is feeling rather tired," is one?

0:17:310:17:34

What happened to your voice?

0:17:340:17:36

It's just the way one speaks when one is a king or a queen.

0:17:360:17:39

-What was it like? Did you get to tell everyone what to do?

-No.

0:17:390:17:43

Being a king wasn't about bossing people around.

0:17:430:17:46

It was more about signing birthday letters, posing for pictures,

0:17:460:17:50

entertaining, talking a lot. My face is aching from smiling.

0:17:500:17:54

-That's you, Sid. King Smiley!

-Get off!

0:17:540:17:59

-Oh, what's that?

-Ah, this is a medal. I was decorated.

0:17:590:18:05

But you can have it for being a brilliant best friend.

0:18:050:18:09

Oh, thanks, Sid! Do you fancy a game of Snap?

0:18:090:18:13

All right, then. And you can go first this time.

0:18:130:18:17

Playing Kings and Queens was brilliant fun,

0:18:170:18:20

but what do you like to play?

0:18:200:18:22

I like playing Police Officers and talking on my radio.

0:18:250:18:30

I like catching baddies.

0:18:300:18:33

I like playing Ladybirds and flying round the garden.

0:18:330:18:37

SHE LAUGHS

0:18:370:18:40

I love playing Tennis Players and winning all my matches!

0:18:400:18:44

It's fun to play. Start playing today.

0:18:470:18:51

Go to...

0:18:510:18:54

..and click on Let's Play.

0:18:540:18:56

See you soon!

0:18:560:18:59

Sid steps through the Magic Curtain and finds himself outside a royal palace. Has he got what it takes to be king for a day and help the queen with her duties?
