Default London Palladium Question

Ok, so I just hung up one of my favorite posters of The Beatles. I did a little research into the show, and of course I'm more confused than I was before. Here's the framed poster...
http://www.beatlelinks.net/images/temp/palladium.jpg

It clearly says "London Palladium/Royal Command Performance 1963" on the poster.

But...in 'The Beatles Chronicle,' it has these two listings...

October 13, 1963 - London Palladium. This was the big show that was broadcast as "Val Parnell's Sunday Night At The London Palladium." The show supposedly proved they were for real to the rest of Britain. Some newspaper dude coined the phrase Beatlemania for the next day's newspapers, and the rest is history.

November 4, 1963 - Price Of Wales Theatre. This was the Royal Command Performance show in front of the Queen Mother & Princess Margaret. You know, the one where John said his famous "rattle your jewelry" line.

So my question is, which is which? The Royal Command show was NOT at the Palladium, so what's going on? And does anybody know if that picture is really from the day of either show?

My guess is that it was taken the somewhere around the day of the Royal Command Performance. The London Palladium Show would not have taken a photo of them so soon.

But they were pretty huge by October 1963, so a picture of them is definitely not out of the ordinary. They were already a #1 band in England.

Yea, that's true. But if you look closely at their hair, it seems longer than when they played at the Palladium. Just my opinion.

Not sure about the specifics, but this is my favourite Beatles poster too. I wouldn't mind finding an original from '64 (has 'The Beatles' in black as opposed to the ones in red, which have been 'bootlegged') in mint condition. Here's an early 1975 reprint of the original, nice close-up pic...

He informs me that the photo was apparently taken in Argyll Street outside the Palladium not long before the actual performance, however said that this could not be 100% confirmed.
