Joanna is good friends with Camilla Parker Bowles and has often spoken highly about the Royal Family. Previously, Joanna Lumley has revealed her 'down to earth' moments with the Queen and spoken about how the Royal Family are 'good-hearted people.' On the Jonathan Ross show during the promotion of her book, Joanna said, "If you do meet any member of the Royal family, they are so kind and so friendly and so polite and not grand. You’ll find kindly, good-hearted people."

The book Joanna was promoting was actually about Her Majesty and her incredible reign over the past 70 years. The book was released in 2021 and was titled, A Queen for All Seasons: A Celebration of Our One and Only Queen Elizabeth II on Her Platinum Jubilee.
