In case you can't make it, check out our interview with Peter below.

Q. This looks like an incredibly fun photo shoot. Describe the experience on the day.

A. It was the most surreal experience of my life - sitting in a palace in England with the royal family & a bunch of corgis - I swear I suddenly behaved myself like I was around the real Royal Family! It was like being a very glamourous fly on the wall in Buckingham Palace.

Q. Tell us about your personal affinity with the monarchy?

A. I do love the Royal Family - I personally think they bring a lot to society as far as respect for one's history & traditions of the past. Everyone is so eager to move forward, but one should never forget where we came from.

Q. What can the royal-enthusiasts of Brisbane expect to see on April 22?

A. The unofficial Royal tour! You will be able to take a selfie with "Will & Kate" and play mind tricks on your friends through social media.
It will be a royally good time with laughs, special offers & discounts in-store, and great photo ops.

Q. Who's your favourite real-life royal, and why?

A. I love Harry's cheekiness but I have grown to admire Camilla's transformation into a respectable royal, however Kate is her royal hotness!

Q. Dachshunds or corgis?

A. The Queen has the right answer to that. She has "dorgis", a mix of the two! Seriously she has.
Sorry but I can’t get past a sausage dog - they just make you smile!

Q. Tell us about your royal fashion blunder? (As in, terrible style you tried to pull off in the past.)

A. I was a teen in the 80s so there has been many! Pirate shirts, knickerbockers, head bands; you name it, I committed the fashion crime!
