'Rather surreal!' Queen could 'recite some one-liners' from her favourite TV show

2 mins read


Tributes have poured in after Queen Elizabeth II passed away peacefully at Balmoral last Thursday. Many people who met Her Majesty also recounted conversations they had with her and revealed certain details about her 70-year reign.

In a piece for the New Statesman, journalist Phil Jones even claimed the Queen told him all about her favourite TV programme during a visit to Buckingham Palace in 2001.

Mr Jones had previously decided to keep the contents of this conversation secret for over 20 years but recently brought it to light as he left BBC Radio 2.

He claimed the late Queen’s favourite show was The Kumars at No 42.

Mr Jones even said Her Majesty was such a big fan of the show that she could “recite some of the one-liners” from it.

He wrote: “In 2001, I was invited to a media function at Buckingham Palace.

“We chatted for ages, which I can tell you is rather surreal.

“My brain kept saying, ‘Bloody hell I’m talking to the Queen and I can’t think of a single thing to say!’

“In the end, I alighted on, ‘What’s your favourite programme?’
