The Queen has had to contend with several challenges over the past two years, including the death of her “beloved” husband Prince Philip and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to step down from their roles. Her Majesty also had to shelve long-standing fixtures of her agenda because of coronavirus restrictions and has spent a long time separated from her children and grandchildren until recently. But according to royal biographer Ingrid Seward, the Queen’s hobbies have been a lifeline and helped her “keep on going.”

Speaking with Nigel Farage on his Talking Pints segment on GB News, the editor-in-chief of Magesty magazine talked about the Queen’s ethos. 

She said: “I think that she was brought up in an era where you never, ever showed emotion.”

“She’s stoic, behind the scenes she has a wonderful, waspish sense of humour, which people have seen a bit now.”

“She’s very funny, she’s always been surrounded by gay staff, and she’s so quick, so funny.”

“She has huge interests; racing and her horses really keep her going.” 

“I think the Queen, a bit like her mother…if there’s something that she can’t deal with, she just doesn’t.”

Farage says: “It’s going to be a big year next year isn’t it.”

“It’s going to be a big year for her and it’s going to be very tiring.”

Prince Harry ‘wanted out of royal family a long time ago’ says Seward

She ended with: “She will be determined that she’s going to get through it and enjoy it.”

2022 marks the monarch’s Platinum Jubilee, where she will become the first British Monarch to celebrate seventy years of service.

Her Majesty acceded to the throne on February 6 1952 when she was 25 years old.

Plans have recently been announced for the event, and reports state: “There will be year-long Platinum Jubilee celebrations throughout the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth and around the world as communities come together to celebrate The Queen’s historic reign.”

The Government have also announced that “the nation will come together over a four-day Bank Holiday weekend to celebrate The Queen’s 70-year reign.”

Their website states: “The May Bank Holiday Weekend will be moved to Thursday 2 June and an additional Bank Holiday on Friday 3 June will see a four-day weekend to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s  Platinum Jubilee – the first time any British monarch has reached this historic milestone.”

All senior members of the Royal Family are expected to take on a leading role in helping the Queen celebrate the special occasion.
