Can anyone speak the Queen’s English better than Queen Elizabeth II herself? In her own words, ‘nah.’
Yes, while we may think that the reigning monarch always ‘speaks proper’, Queen Elizabeth does sometimes finding herself slipping into slang every now and then.
You can watch the video below.
Who knew that the royals were actually just like us?
In a clip resurfaced from 2006 documentary ‘The Queen’, which followed the now disgraced artist Rolf Harris as he painted a portrait of Her Maj, Queen Elizabeth remarks that she can now see herself ‘ageing’ as she looks in the mirror.
When Rolf asks her whether this bothers her at all, she replies: “Nah. Not really. I’m used to it now.”
The clip has since gone viral on TikTok by user arksteriff, who commented she was 'answering a question like every bloke in the UK'.
And many people flocked to the comments to chuckle at the Queen’s lapse into slang.
One person laughed: “She’s a legend,” while a second added: “Queenie belongs to the streets.”
A third chuckled: “That’s the most relatable I’ve ever seen her,” and a fourth chipped in: “She turned Received Pronunciation off.”
Meanwhile, many others compared Queen Elizabeth II to another British legend, saying she “turned into Phil Mitchell’ with her curt dismissal.
The portrait was commissioned to celebrate the Queen’s 80th birthday.
Queen Elizabeth II is the UK’s longest ever running monarch in history, having ascended to the throne in 1952 aged just 25.
Now 95 years old, the Queen has reigned the country and the Commonwealth for nearly 70 years.
In other royal news, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have announced they are developing a Netflix series through their Archewell production company.
Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex will create and executive produce the new series, which currently has the working title Pearl.
Pearl will be aimed at families and will follow a 12-year-old girl who goes on adventures inspired by different influential women throughout history.
The Duke and Duchess signed a multi-year development deal with the streaming service last year, which will see their Archewell company produce and create scripted TV shows, documentaries and children's programming.
