Elizabeth II: the Queen of England was a “very funny” queen
Mick Delaney told an anecdote that Queen Elizabeth “slapped” him with a spoon. Delaney was then in the country house of the Duke of Westminster. All the staff were downstairs having tea and chatting. A policeman from the Queen started telling them about a game Her Majesty used to play. “Your Majesty, do you remember that game with the spoon? Elizabeth II answered ‘yes’ and asked if the policeman wanted her to play the game of the spoon with the postman.
Queen Elizabeth II of England then sat down in a chair and Mr Delaney came up behind her to hit her head with the spoon he had put in her mouth. “Then it was my turn. She walked around me and hit me on the head with the spoon she was holding in her hand,” he said. Everyone in the room started laughing. Mick Delaney had realized after a few moments that he was “being slapped with a spoon by the Queen”.
