It is presenter and comedian Alexander Armstrong, who is making a documentary about the queen later this month on the occasion of her 95th birthday. He reveals a strange anecdote about him, in which he can be seen The queen and her cousins. The queen is said to have written hilarious letters in which she pretended to her dogs, the famous Korgis.
When Alexander went to the toilet with the late Sir Blair Stewart-Wilson – the queen’s former aide – he found handwritten, framed letters on the wall. In the letters, the queen apparently pretends to be her colleague’s Jack Russell writing her corgis. According to the documentary maker, he was ‘hilarious’ and ‘a perfect portrayal of the queen’s strange style’. “He wrote a letter from his Jack Russell to Coregis and the Queen wrote back,” Alexander said in the documentary. “I wish I could remember what it said. I remember holding my stomach and crying with laughter because they were so funny.”
For the new documentary, he traveled all over the UK to meet many of the Queen’s nieces and nephews. What is it like to be a part of this extraordinary family? He spoke with, among others, the Russian princess Olga Romanoff, a grand niece of the queen, but also Lord Ivar Mountainton. She married her husband in 2018, making them the first openly gay couple in royal history.
In 1969, millions of Britishers saw how Queen Elizabeth and her family tried to brighten their tarnished image through a stunning documentary. Yet the documentary was banned, most recently … after more than fifty years, it suddenly appeared on YouTube. You see it below.
