Queen Elizabeth news – Her Majesty’s razor-sharp response to Prince Philip when he told her ‘shut up you silly woman’

[ad_1]

THE QUEEN once shut down a cheeky quip by Prince Philip with a SINGLE comment, a royal aide has claimed.

According to an anonymous Buckingham Palace aide speaking to the Daily Mail, Philip was reportedly overheard telling his wife of 73 years “Oh, do shut up, you silly woman”.

But Her Majesty shut down Philip’s quip with a single comment: “I am not a silly woman, I am the Queen.”

The aide added: “They bickered with one another. It was sweet but so unexpected.

It comes after we reported how Philip threatened to throw Queen ‘out of a car’ after ‘yelping’ at him for driving too fast.

A friend and biographer, to the Duke of Edinburgh, Gyles Brandreth has told how the Monarch’s late husband was known to ‘drive fast’.

Mr Brandreth told the BBC Today Programme: “I have been in a car with him and I have to say he drives really well, but he can drive fast. 

“When he was younger he was a dynamo, he did everything fast.  He was a dynamo and he could be impatient. His cousin Countess Mountbatten told me that her father, Lord Mountbatten, was once driving with the Queen and Prince Philip through Cowdrey Park and Prince Philip was going too fast according to Lord Mountbatten.”

The royal biographer continued to say: “The Queen was sort of yelping and drawing in her breath and flinching as he drove so fast. And Prince Philip turned to her and said, ‘Look, if you do that once more I will put you out of the car’. And when the hair-raising journey came to an end Lord Mountbatten asked the Queen why she hadn’t protested, saying ‘You’re the Queen’. But the Queen said, ‘Oh you heard what he said and he meant it.’”

  • Harry and Meghan’s plan to outflank the royal family

    The Sussexes, who took a step back from the working royals, are striving to be seen as the members of the firm ‘who care’ ommentator Eric Schiffer suggested.

    The American PR expert has claimed: “They (Harry and Meghan) are going to own the hearts and minds of Gen Z and millennials. They will be seen as the real royals, who care. They are trying to outflank the Royal Family.

    “They are trying to do the work of what the Royal Family typically is about, which is about optimising society and helping to make society that much more uplifted in many ways – whether that is emotional or culturally.”

    He has also said that their Spotify and Netflix media deals, are ideal to tighten their “relationships with Gen Z and millennials”, something that happens “whenever you can take the mask of celebrity off, especially if you are positioned at a high level and are able to show your heart and speak about things that are true for you authentically”.

    He added: “They have zeroed in on the future of the monarchy, which is the youth of the world.”

  • Queen’s fiery run-in with Putin

    it was revealed she previously had a fiery run-in with the Russian President.

    Her Majesty once spectacularly broke royal protocol to take a brutal swipe at the war-hungry Russian President.

    The graceless tyrant left her waiting for 14 minutes during an official visit in 2003, seeing her reportedly use a dog’s reaction to taunt him.

    According to David Blunkett, who was Home Secretary at the time, his guide dog reacted defensively towards Putin.

    He told the BBC: “The only time I met Vladimir Putin was back in 2003 on an official visit and my then dog barked very loudly.

    “I did apologise to the Queen who was obviously hosting. I don’t think I am giving anything away when I said, ‘Sorry your Majesty about the dog barking.’

    “She said, ‘Dogs have interesting instincts, don’t they?'”

  • Queen makes ‘generous donation’ to Ukraine charity appeal

    THE Queen has made a “generous donation” to a charity appeal providing vital emergency aid to residents fleeing Putin’s invasion.

    Her Majesty made an undisclosed contribution to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal as residents were forced to leave their war-torn homeland.

    The charity thanked the 95-year-old monarch for “continuing to support” their mission in a tweet on Thursday.

    Buckingham Palace said it was a private matter and declined to provide further details.

    According to the DEC, over four million people are expected to be displaced due to the devastating conflict.

    The organisation – made up of 15 charities – launched its appeal on Thursday as the invasion rolled into its eighth day.

  • ‘Exorciating takedown’

    Last month The Sun revealed Charles has told aides he worries his younger son’s book will be an “excoriating takedown” of the Duchess of Cornwall — particularly in the early years of the couple’s romance.

    A source said: “There are concerns about Harry’s recollections of Camilla’s entry into the Royal Family, and how her long-running romance with Charles damaged him from a young age.

    “Harry is fiercely loyal and protective of his late mother and her legacy, and didn’t approve of Camilla sweeping in as the great love of his father’s life.

    “Understandably he found those early years incredibly difficult, and he might publicly blame Camilla for much of what he believes went wrong in his childhood, and the trauma the whole situation caused.”

    The source added Charles is “deeply protective of Camilla” and the “last thing he needs” is an “excoriating takedown of Camilla at a time when people have finally taken her to their hearts”.

  • Continued…

    Asked about Harry’s relationship with the Duchess of Cornwall, she continued: “When I met him he was very nice about her, said she was a wonderful woman and said he liked her very much.

    “Camilla was also very helpful to Meghan when she first joined – took her out for lunch and tried to teach her some of the things she needed to know – the restrictions and the disadvantages as well as the positives.”

    The royal expert went on to claim the book could be a form of “revenge” and be “spiteful” towards the royal family.

    She added: “Prince Charles is very malleable because he loves Harry very much so he might be more inclined to let him have his way, but I think if he reads what he says about Camilla then he won’t do that.”

  • Prince Harry’s book to take ‘revenge’ on ‘kind’ Camilla

    PRINCE Harry’s bombshell book could take “revenge” on Camilla who took Meghan under her wing when she joined the Royal Family, a royal expert has said.

    It is feared Harry’s tell-all biography, due for release later this year, could take a swipe at the future Queen consort.

    The Duke of Sussex, who has vowed to give a “wholly truthful” and “honest” account of his life in the bombshell biography, has not yet publicly addressed the Queen’s decision to hand over the reigns to Camilla when the time comes.

    Sources have previously suggested the duke’s silence “speaks volumes” about his relationship with Prince Charles’ second wife.

    And Royal biographer Angela Levin believes any bad-mouthing of Camilla could appear as a spiteful attack.

    Angela, who spent a year with Prince Harry for an authorised biography, told Talk Radio: “Harry‘s memoir is coming out at the end of the year.

    “Anyone who is anyone is saying it’s going to attack Camilla and make her responsible for [his] mental health and how she stole his father from his mother.”

  • William and The Queen donate to DEC appeal

    The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) has praised the UK’s “astonishing show of support” for those affected by the conflict in Ukraine after raising £55 million in its first day.

    The charity, made up of 15 leading aid agencies, urged the public to keep momentum for the cause going as it revealed that “hundreds of thousands” of people had contributed within hours of the appeal’s launch.

    Among them was the Queen, who made a “generous donation” on Thursday, along with the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge, the DEC said.

    The total figure includes £20 million donated by the Government as part of its UK Aid Match initiative – the largest commitment ever made to a DEC appeal through the scheme.

  • Prince George could face major move

    Educational options are being considered by Kate and William, and could see George find a new school.

    Unlike his father, a move to Eton could now be off the table as the royal couple consider moving the their son to a prep school in Berkshire.

    According to royal reporter Rebecca English, the Lambrook School is widely considered a front-runner for the Prince.

    For George’s siblings, however, they will remain at Thomas’s Battersea for now.

    Writing in the Daily Mail, English claimed that reports suggest Princess Charlotte is “super happy and settled” at the school, and is likely to be joined by her younger brother Prince Louis

  • Philip ‘threatened to throw Queen out of a car’ once

    PRINCE Philip threatened to throw Queen ‘out of a car’ after ‘yelping’ at him for driving too fast.

    A friend and biographer, to the Duke of Edinburgh, Gyles Brandreth has told how the Monarch’s late husband was known to ‘drive fast’.

    Mr Brandreth told the BBC Today Programme: “I have been in a car with him and I have to say he drives really well, but he can drive fast. 

    “When he was younger he was a dynamo, he did everything fast.  

    “He was a dynamo and he could be impatient. His cousin Countess Mountbatten told me that her father, Lord Mountbatten, was once driving with the Queen and Prince Philip through Cowdrey Park and Prince Philip was going too fast according to Lord Mountbatten.”

  • Queen’s sweet sleep-over tradition revealed

    According to Kate Middleton, The Queen has a sweet way of showing her great-grandchildren Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis how much she loves them.

    Kate went on to discuss how the Queen enjoys her time with Princess Charlotte, six, explaining: “The Queen was really thrilled that it was a little girl.

    “I think as soon as we came back here to Kensington she was one of our first visitors here.

    “I think she’s very fond of Charlotte. She’s always watching what she’s up to.”

  • Poppy Factory is a ‘safe space’ says RAF veteran

    Stephen Pleasants began volunteering with the charity after suffering a breakdown, and is now a production worker at the west London factory, manning reception, making wreaths and helping in the warehouse.

    The former RAF member described the factory, in Richmond, as a “safe space” for people.

    He told the PA news agency: “I had a major breakdown about seven years ago, so it took me a long time to rebuild my life, and the Poppy Factory has really helped with that.

    “I was suicidal.

    “I was going to commit suicide and ended up in a psychiatric hospital for a couple of weeks and then did a lot of therapy.”

    He said it had been suggested to him to get involved with the Poppy Factory, and he had found a “purpose” there.

    He said: “I think having a purpose in your day, a purpose in life is so helpful.

    “And having a routine is really good, just getting out of bed and having something to do, a purpose in everything you do, is really important.

  • Prince William got ‘almighty’ telling off from Queen

    Prince William recalled an incident that happened when he and his cousins Zara Tindall and her younger brother, Peter Phillips, were youngsters that got him into deep water with the Queen.

    William recalled the moment in an interview with Sky News for a documentary to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday almost six years ago.

    He explained how he and his other cousins got into trouble after riding a quad bike at Balmoral.

    William said: “We were chasing Zara around who was on a go-cart, and Peter and I managed to herd Zara into a lamppost.

    “And the lamppost came down and nearly squashed her, and I remember my grandmother being the first person out at Balmoral running across the lawn in her kilt.

    “(She) came charging over and gave us the most almighty b******ing, and that sort of stuck in my mind from that moment on.”

    Royal expert Jennie Bond spoke to OK! Magazine about the reasons for her wardrobe update, saying: “Kate is a practical princess and increasingly wears trousers to reflect that she’s ready for business, whether that be kneeling down with kids or sliding down a slide.

    “She wants to appear approachable, one of the people, not an untouchable figure in the prim dress.”
