An aide close to the Queen has revealed that Her Majesty has an impressive talent that she uses to impress guests with.


The Queen is known for a lot of different things but her reputation for her 'wicked sense of humor' is relatively unknown. However, an aide close to her Majesty, Angela Kelly has revealed that the Queen has a hilarious hidden talent that she uses to make her friends laugh.

Reportedly, Her Majesty is great at mimicking accents and has even impressed Angela, her dressmaker with her ability to copy her scouse accent.

Angela said, "We have a lot of fun together. The Queen has a wicked sense of humor and is a great mimic. She can do all accents—including mine."

Princess Diana's former butler Paul Burrell also previously confirmed that the Queen enjoys mimicking accents. 

Paul said, "She has a great sense of humor and a guttural laugh. When she travels through the country she loves to hear regional accents."

"She loves to hear a Scouse accent or a Birmingham accent or a Welsh accent or a Scottish accent. She will come back and she'll do the accent. She does a great Scouse accent," the former butler added.

Alongside having a knack for impressions, Her Majesty has many other talents that have been revealed to fans over the years.

Her Majesty's photography has been applauded on many different occasions and although many think of the Duchess of Cambridge as the budding photographer in the royal family, the Queen has also showed off her talents with previous photography before.

The Queen also has impressive language skills and speaks a variety of other languages conversationally, as well as fluent French.

The Queen is also an expert racehorse breeder and owner and has been awarded numerous prestigious honors in recognition of her ability. As well as breeding thoroughbreds for racing, the Queen has also taken on the burden of preserving some pony breeds.

Her Majesty breeds Shetland ponies at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, Fell ponies at Hampton Court, and in 2007 she opened a full-time Highland pony stud at Balmoral to enhance and preserve the rare breed of pony.
