THE QUEEN (TO PAUL): How long have you been together now?

PAUL: Oh, for many years.

RINGO: Forty years.

THE QUEEN (TO RINGO): Are you the one who started it?

JOHN: No, we've been on a holiday.


OUTSIDE BUCKINGHAM PALACE, OCTOBER 26, 1965


PAUL: We've played so many palaces including Frisco's Cow Palace. But never this one before. It's a keen pad and I liked the staff. Thought they'd be dukes and things, but they were just fellas.

QUESTION: What about the Queen?

PAUL: She's lovely, great. She was very friendly. She was just like a mum to us.

QUESTION: Were you nervous?

JOHN: Not as much as some of the other people.

QUESTION: How did the other medal recipients act towards your award?

JOHN: One formally dressed middle-aged winner walked up to us after the ceremony and said, "I want your autographs for my daughter, but I don't know what she sees in you." So we gave him our autographs.

QUESTION: How did you know what to do during the ceremony?

JOHN: The big fellow drilled us. Everytime he got to Ringo he kept cracking up.

QUESTION: What will you do with your medals?

PAUL: What you normally do with medals. Put them in a box.
