Deep down, I’ve always imagined Queen Elizabeth II to be a little like my Nan. A good person at heart, but just a tiny little bit politically incorrect.
SHE DOESN’T MEAN IT.
But she sometimes says things that are outdated by approximately three decades.
And that’s okay.
Except when it’s… not.
According to a Palace insider (no srsly are these people real it’s incredibly important that we know), the Queen had thoughts about her granddaughter-in-law’s wedding dress.
In an exposé for the Daily Mail about how ‘Hurricane Meghan is shaking up the Royals,’ with such crazy antics as waking up early and texting people, Polly Dunbar writes that the Queen was “surprised” by Meghan’s choice of dress.
According to royal sources, “The Queen is said to have expressed surprise that Meghan, a divorcee, wore quite such a white dress for her wedding”.
That sounds exactly like something my Nan would say. While also maybe pointing out how important it is to a) wear a sensible shoe and b) not show too much shoulder.
