The Queen once reportedly made a sad confession sparked by the “isolation” brought by living a life of duty.
According to writer Andrew Morton’s recent book, the Queen is recognised for her dedication to her people, and she reportedly confessed that she would have liked to “mix” with them as part of her daily life in a sad admission.
Andrew claimed, “She’s lived with those four letters, duty, throughout her life. She’s also tried to make some sense of what she’s had to do – the isolation and the loneliness of the job.”
During a conversation with Billy Graham, the famous American preacher, Her Majesty was reportedly asked, “Wouldn’t you like to mix with the people?”
They were staring out the window of Buckingham Palace, as the Queen sombrely replied, “With all my heart.”
Traditional meetings aren’t necessarily what the Queen prefers, as Andrew pointed out, “She’s a matriarch to the nation but she’s also distant as well.”
While Her Majesty wishes to mingle with Brits even more, she will be celebrated over four days of huge events next week to honour her Platinum Jubilee.
While she is predicted to “pace herself” with her attendance at the Jubilee celebrations, the Queen is expected to appear on the balcony of Buckingham Palace for the Trooping the Colour parade, with Prince Charles, Duchess Camilla, Prince William, Kate Middleton and other key members of The Firm to join her for the iconic moment.
