The Queen ‘gets irritated when people avoid her at parties’, royal expert claims

MANY people find parties a struggle, and it turns out the Queen is one of them.

According to Adam Helliker, author of a forthcoming book on the Royal Family, the Queen gets “irritated” when people shy away from her when she enters a room.

He told Fabulous Digital: “Ever wondered what the Queen feels like when she enters a room filled with people, knowing they're all nervous about meeting her?

“Well, an RAF officer who served as an equerry discloses: ‘One summer day she asked me to join her on a walk at Balmoral.

“'She talked about how irritating it was to go into a party and as she put it, watch people peel away, like the water parting as the bow of a ship ploughed through it."'She said she always felt it would be lovely to just slip into a party, wandering around incognito, talking to anyone she felt like.

"But the thing that most irritated her was the 'inevitable hush' that always greeted her when they saw her walking in.”

It’s not just royal fans that get star-struck and shy when they meet the Queen, 93, as Prince Harry, 34, has admitted he gets intimidated when he bumps into his grandma.

In the ITV documentary Queen of the World, Harry said to some Caribbean scholars visiting Buckingham Palace: “Have you bumped into the Queen yet?

“If you suddenly bump into her in the corridor, don’t panic. I know you will. We all do!”

Perhaps people need not worry, as the Queen is said to be rather shy herself.

The Daily Mail’s Richard Kay said of Prince Philip: “He is trying to say the right thing, sometimes it doesn’t come out quite right.

“He’s always taken the view that his role is an ice-breaker. The Queen is actually remarkably shy.”

And if you do encounter Her Majesty, you might want to put down your phone.

Although the Queen has always tried to embrace modern technology, she is said to loathe mobiles when she is out in public.

She is said to have told former US ambassador Matthew Barzun that she finds it “strange” to see the backs of phones and “misses eye contact".

In other royal news, we revealed how friends have ‘stopped inviting’ Meghan and Harry to dinner parties because they ‘frown upon their PDA’.

While the Fab Four split began when Prince Harry ‘read William and Kate the riot act’ for ‘not supporting’ Meghan Markle before their Royal wedding, sources claim.

And Meghan Markle is a victim of cruel ‘mum shaming’ and the Palace need to do more to build up her ‘motherly image’, according to a PR guru.
