Queen Elizabeth was on “fantastic form” and had “no regrets” during her final days, a new book has claimed. It shares details about the Queen’s final stay at Balmoral before she died. The royal biography ‘Elizabeth: An Intimate Portrait’, written by Gyles Brandreth and serialised in the Daily Mail, stated the Queen was determined to stay busy after the Duke of Edinburgh died last year in April.
However, when doctors advised her to take things easier later in the year, she was said to have conceded: “I’ve got to be sensible.”
The biography also revealed how the Queen was decisive when she “fired” the Duke of York after the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.
It stated that when Prince Andrew told her his full account of the “saga” involving his friendship with the disgraced financier, she is said to have responded: “Intriguing.”
According to the Right Rev Dr Iain Greenshields, she was in “fantastic form” on the weekend before she died.
He told Brandreth that she was “so alive and engaging”, and how they spoke about her childhood, her horses, church affairs and her sadness over the war in Ukraine.
He said: “Her faith was everything to her. She told me she had no regrets,” he said.
Mr Brandreth wrote: “Her Majesty always knew that her remaining time was limited.
