Like us, Russell Brand was one of the disappointed many who didn't receive an invitation to the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton next month.

However, he has joked that he might gatecrash anyway and has come up with a novel way of doing so, Access Hollywood reports.

The comedian said he could dress as the Queen and be so convincing that he will even be able to get close up to the happy couple.

"Then I'll lift my skirt and I'll have no underwear on and everyone will go, 'The Queen's willy!' Get your laughing gear round that," Brand added.

He didn't say what wife Katy Perry thinks of his plan, although she's probably used to his antics by now. He recently put a photograph on Twitter of her with no makeup, but then swiftly took it down again, presumably after she gave him an earful!
