Queen has a surprising talent that shows off her ‘wicked sense of humour’

There's very few people who can say they personally know Her Majesty The Queen, aside from the rest of the royal family.

While the public know a great amount about the royals, and some interesting facts about Queen Elizabeth, there is only a small circle of close confidants who know Her Majesty personally.

One of those closest to the Queen is her aide and dresser, Angela Kelly, who has known the monarch for over 30 years.

Angela, 64, began working for Her Majesty in 1993, and is solely responsible for how she looks in public, making her the brains behind some of Queen Elizabeth's most iconic looks.

Angela has grown extremely close to the monarch over the last 30 years, and previously lifted the lid on their friendship, giving a rare insight into what the Queen is like behind closed doors.

Liverpudlian Angela claimed that Her Majesty is a great mimic, who can successfully mimic her Scouse accent and do great impressions of other people.

In a rare interview in 2007, Angela revealed: "We have a lot of fun together. The Queen has a wicked sense of humour and is a great mimic.

"She can do all accents — including mine."

Fashion designer Angela was previously given the Queen's seal of approval for her tell-all book, The Other Side of The Coin: The Queen, The Dresser and the Wardrobe, which was released in 2019.

It marks the first, and only known, instance where the Queen has given a book the green light, proving how highly regarded Angela is by Her Majesty.

Angela's most notable looks during her career include the Queen's yellow outfit she wore to Prince William and Kate Middleton's royal wedding.

She was also the designer behind Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie's outfits for Zara Phillips' wedding, and was the designer behind the replica of the royal christening gown, worn by most royal babies.

There's no doubt Angela will currently be busy creating Queen Elizabeth's looks for the festive period, as she gets ready to celebrate Christmas with the rest of the royal family.

While concerns surrounding the Queen's health have been rife over recent months, she has reportedly told her family she is feeling better and looking forward to the traditional royal festivities she annually hosts at her Norfolk estate.

A source told The Mirror: “The Queen has told everyone she is feeling far better of late and is very much looking forward to welcoming them for Christmas.

“Like many other families, this will be the first time Her Majesty can gather with her extended family after being kept apart for so long due to the coronavirus pandemic.”
