After Viscount ignored her, Elton John claimed he saw the Queen ‘lightly slap nephew’s cheek.
ELTON, SIR JOHN claimed to have witnessed The Queen and her nephew, the Earl of Snowdon, engaged in a seemingly heated dispute.
Sir Elton John has made no secret of his personal friendship with members of the British Royal Family, even performing at the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales. The singer now claims to have been in the front row during a brawl between the Monarch and her nephew.
The Queen lightly smacked him across the face when he [Linley] sought to deflect her attention.
Sir Elton John is a British singer-songwriter and musician.
David Anthony Armstrong-Jones, Earl of Snowdon, is Her Majesty The Queen’s sole nephew and his mother Princess Margaret’s sister.
Her Majesty has a close relationship with her sister’s children, with the Earl walking behind Prince Philip’s coffin during his funeral and her niece Lady Sarah Chatto appearing beside the monarch on various occasions.
Because of his friendship with the late Diana, Princess of Wales, Sir Elton John, 74, has been fortunate enough to see the strong ties between members of the Royal Family through the years.
The I’m Still Standing singer, on the other hand, was taken aback by an occurrence at a royal celebration.
Elton claims to have observed The Queen getting into an argument with the second Earl of Snowdon in his memoir, Me.
Her Majesty, 95, is claimed to have asked the Earl to check in on his sister, who was sick at the time and couldn’t attend the function.
David, on the other hand, supposedly did not want to do this.
“When he [Linley] tried to fob her off again, the Queen lightly smacked him across the face, screaming ‘Don’t’,” Elton wrote. – slap – ‘debate’ – slap – ‘against’ – slap – ‘with’ – slap – ‘me’ ‘I’ – slap – ‘am’ – slap – ‘THE QUEEN!” – slap
After the heated conversation, David did as he was ordered and went to see Lady Sarah, according to the singer.
However, Elton noted that behind closed doors during private family time, the Queen “could be” rather amusing.
“I know the Queen’s public image isn’t exactly one of wild frivolity, but… she could be amusing in private,” he wrote.
Elton has maintained a close friendship with Diana’s two sons, Princes William and Harry, since her death.
He, too. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
