The Queen’s aide and close friend Angela Kelly, who has known her for more than 30 years, previously revealed Her Majesty unusual skill
Very few people can claim to really know the Queen and her hidden skills and talents.
But one of them is her dresser Angela Kelly, who is said to be very close to Her Majesty.
And she once revealed that the monarch is actually a great mimic, and can do hilarious impressions of other people’s accents.
In a rare interview in 2007, Angela Kelly even divulged that the Queen mimics her Liverpudlian accent.
She said: “We have a lot of fun together. The Queen has a wicked sense of humour and is a great mimic.
“She can do all accents — including mine.”
Angela, who was the daughter of a dockworker in Liverpool, was given The Queen’s support for her tell-all book – The Other Side of The Coin: The Queen, The Dresser and the Wardrobe.
The decision to support the book is unprecedented, proving just how highly regarded she is by the Queen.
After starting in 1993 as a dresser, Angela is now solely responsible for how Her Majesty looks in public and has even made several of her most memorable looks.

And who knows, maybe Angela is busy at work making some outfits for the Queen to wear this Christmas?
That’s because the monarch has told her family she is well enough to host Christmas at Sandringham this month after recovering from a back sprain.
The 95-year-old assured them she is feeling “far better” and is “looking forward” to the traditional festive get together at her Norfolk estate.

Concern for the Queen’s health has been heightened in recent weeks after she pulled out of a number of major engagements.
But a source said: “The Queen has told everyone she is feeling far better of late and is very much looking forward to welcoming them for Christmas.
“Like many other families, this will be the first time Her Majesty can gather with her extended family after being kept apart for so long due to the coronavirus pandemic.”
Royal fans will be hoping to return to the estate on Christmas Day to catch a glimpse of the royals as they walk en masse to and from the 16th Century St Mary Magdalene Church on the Sandringham property.
The Queen is said to be “determined” to attend church with the rest of the family, but will as in previous years be driven to the church to save her walking the short distance.
Christmas guests will include Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children.
