The royal family has an unusual sense of humor. The Windsors often give each other surprise gifts and joke, experts say.
The writer Sally Bedell Smith spoke about the stories associated with Queen Elizabeth II. It is reported by the British edition of the Daily Mail.
She shared that the Queen of England loves and knows how to laugh at herself. Smith recalled an incident at a party following the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana in 1981. According to the writer, when the queen noticed that she was being shown on TV, she pointed to the screen and said: "Oh, here is my Miss Piggy face!" It's about the hero of the Muppet Show.
Another case is dated 2012. Then Elizabeth II was preparing for her diamond anniversary. Smith said that during the photo shoot, the queen jokingly began to portray professional models and get up in various poses. The photographer and dressmaker who witnessed the performance couldn't believe their eyes, says Sally.
Earlier, confidants told that in the family of Elizabeth II there is a custom - to give each other "strange" and "comic" gifts. At the same time, the queen herself supports this idea. For example, we know about a shower cap and a talking fish on the wall.
In addition, the courtiers of Elizabeth II spoke about her "strange" rules. For example, she strictly ensures that no more than 13 guests are present at the banquet at Buckingham Palace. "Not because she is superstitious, but in case the guests are superstitious," said the close associates.
