THE DARKNESS - HAWKINS' ROYAL INSPIRATION

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

THE DARKNESS star JUSTIN HAWKINS found royal inspiration for his debut track - British monarch QUEEN ELIZABETH II's granddaughter was his muse.
Princess Beatrice - daughter of the Queen's son Andrew - inspired the first song Hawkins ever wrote in the late 1980s.

He says, "It was a song called Beatrice. I guess it was because I was thinking about Beatrice who had just been born at the time."
