You’ve seen many photos of Queen Elizabeth being very serious and formally dressed because she is carrying out an official engagement. She always looks perfect, because she must, she is a ruling monarch.
The Royal family has very strict rules when it comes to dressing up at public events. And, there are rules about how you should behave at official engagements. So, it is normal that Queen Elizabeth is following those strict rules. But of course, there are times, when the Queen is at her home and that’s the time when she can relax a little bit. Maybe you think that Her Majesty is very formal at home too, but that’s not the case. Her Royal biographer says that she is much funnier than everybody thinks, she likes to relax when she’s home, and she is just a normal person.
It can be very difficult to be so formal at all time
It is normal for the member of the royal family to follow certain rules when they are attending official events, and some days there is more than one event that they need to attend. That can be very stressful and hard, so it is normal for everyone, even the Queen to relax when the day comes to an end.
Like most of the people when the day is over, she likes to relax and just be herself.
Her Majesty likes to joke
Maybe you don’t see Queen Elizabeth laughing that much often, but she does enjoy a good laugh and a good joke. In her inner circle, she is known for telling great jokes. And she also loves hearing a good joke.
This may sound unrealistic, but Queen Elizabeth loves to amuse people that she is around with, but of course only when there are no cameras present.
She likes to give everybody nicknames
We know that members of the royal family go by their royal titles, but again that’s only for the public. They don’t call each other ‘Prince’, ‘Duke’, ‘Duchess’, etc. And Queen Elizabeth loves to give nicknames to everybody. Apparently, she has a nickname for everyone. And the nicknames are funny and cute.
Her grandchildren, Prince William, and Prince Harry call her ‘Granny’, and Prince William’s son Prince George calls her ‘Gan-Gan’.
She likes to have fun
The Queen is not a robot and it is perfectly normal that she likes to have fun. When she is not at a formal engagement, she does let her guard down, and she shows the real side of her. And her real side is funny and humble, she likes to joke, and she likes to have fun. And she definitely deserves it.
What does Queen Elizabeth like to talk about?
Maybe to you, it seems that what Queen Elizabeth does is pretty easy. But, it’s not. She has a full-time job and it is a very serious job. Her Majesty has one big passion, and that’s horses. She loves horses, so when she talks to someone she likes to talk about horses. And that’s something that she will talk about even on her official engagements.
And something that is really interesting is that The Queen is always using her handbag to send different signals to her staff and her guards. So, we can say that Queen Elizabeth can speak a secret language. And this sign language helps her keep everything in order.
Her Majesty is also a great advice giver, Prince Harry said that he goes regularly to her for advice about his personal life.
So, we can say with certainty that Queen Elizabeth is someone that takes her job and responsibilities very seriously, but she is also a great mother, grandmother, family member, and a friend. She can be serious when she needs to be, but she can also be funny when she wants and when she can. And another important thing is that The Queen loves helping other people and she always makes sure that others are having a good time when they are with her.
