Britain’s Duchess of Cornwall has visited the set of the TV series “The Killing,” where she was greeted by Danish actress Sofie Graaboel in her trademark off-white-and-black sweater.

Miss Graaboel plays police detective Sarah Lund in the popular Danish crime series, which inspired an American remake.

The Danish palace said Camilla had asked to visit the film set during her and Prince Charles’ third and final leg of their Scandinavia tour, the Associated Press reports.

Camilla and Denmark’s Australian-born Crown Princess Mary wore headphones Tuesday as they watched the shooting of the third season on a monitor.

Meanwhile, Prince Charles and Crown Prince Frederik, heir to Europe’s oldest monarchy, visited a carbon-neutral kindergarten and an activity center for the elderly near Copenhagen.

McBride to sing for wedding on Country Music Awards

Martina McBride is taking on a new role at the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday: wedding singer.

She will perform her new single, “Marry Me,” with Train lead singer Pat Monahan while a couple from New Jersey gets married onstage. According to the Associated Press, Miss McBride handpicked Christina Davidson and her fiance Frank Tucci to tie the knot during her performance in Las Vegas.

They both lost their spouses in 2009 and met at a support group for young widows and widowers that Ms. Davidson started in their community. Their friendship grew as they dealt with the challenges of being single parents and the struggle to keep their spouses’ memories alive.

The ACM Awards will air live on CBS on Sunday.

Netflix abandons talks to revive ‘Terra Nova’

“Terra Nova” officially is extinct, at least with Netflix.

Just weeks after the company expressed interest in picking up the recently canceled Fox dinosaur drama, the streaming service has opted to pass on salvaging the series, the Hollywood Reporter has learned, as Netflix and “Terra Nova” studio 20th Television were unable to come to terms to revive the series.

Netflix’s name first surfaced early this month after Fox canceled the pricey drama from executive producer Steven Spielberg and 20th Television, but talks ultimately broke down.

Despite international appeal for the series, which starred Jason O’Mara and Stephen Lang, Fox canceled “Terra Nova” in early March after spending an estimated $10 million to $20 million on its twice-delayed two-hour premiere, with 20th Television announcing it would shop the series elsewhere.
