January 31, 2007 17:29 IST
Shilpa Shetty, whose win in UK's reality television show Celebrity Big Brother has catapulted her to instant fame, is all set to meet the Queen and Prime Minister Tony Blair.
"It is a huge honour. I am humbled," Shilpa told the Daily Mirror in an interview, three days after emerging triumphant in the show.
Shilpa said she planned to extend her stay in Britain, as her mother Sunanda is keen on looking for a match for her.
The actress has been invited to a reception to mark the Commonwealth Day on March 12 where she would come face to face with the Queen. She is also due to meet Tony Blair and other ministers at the House of Commons on February 7, the newspaper said.
Shilpa is tipped to make an estimated 10 million pounds after her new found international fame.
