According to HarperCollins Publishers, the monarch has given her blessing for personal adviser and dressmaker Angela Kelly to write a book about the pair’s close working relationship and ‘unparalleled bond’.

The book is said to include previously unseen photos of Queen Elizabeth from the 25 years that Ms Kelly has spent by her side.
