2 SEPTEMBER 2003
Gwyneth Paltrow and Joseph Fiennes were reunited on Monday, as the stars of Shakespeare In Love performed at the Globe Theatre in London. Prince Charles and his long-time companion Camilla Parker Bowles were guests of honour at the event, which was staged to raise money for his charity.
The audience was treated to some Shakespearean romance, as Joseph and Gwyneth performed a selection of scenes from Romeo And Juliet.
Theatre buffs paid up to £300 each for a seat at the event, which also boasted some of Britain's most revered theatre actors. Paul Schofield and Timothy West starred in an excerpt from The Tempest while Dame Diana Rigg recited the "All the world's a stage" speech from As You Like It.
There was also some light relief as Sanjeev Bhaskar, from The Kumars at No 42, performed the role of Bottom from A Midsummer Night's Dream.
But it was Gwyneth and Joseph that stole the show, as they reprised the "gallop apace" and "Romeo's Farewell" scenes, which both featured in Shakespeare In Love. And their collaboration will help build a better future for some of Britain's most needy young people, as over £100,000 was raised for The Prince's Trust charity.
