Her keen sense for fun is perhaps best illustrated by a series of letters uncovered by broadcaster Alexander Armstrong. Mr Armstrong has produced a new documentary for ITV to mark the Queen’s 95th birthday, called ‘The Queen and her Cousins’. While visiting the home of the late Sir Blair Stewart-Wilson, a former equerry to Her Majesty, the broadcaster came across hand-written notes hanging in the downstairs toilet.

The letters reveal a ‘correspondence’ between Sir Blair’s Jack Russell and the Queen’s corgis, part of a hilarious spoof.

Mr Armstrong told the Daily Telegraph that they were a perfect example of the Queen’s “wicked sense of humour”.

He said: “He would write these letters from their Jack Russell to the corgis and the Queen would write these letters back.

“And they put this series of letters up, and they are so funny.

“I wish I could remember them.

“I remember holding my stomach, howling with laughter because they are wickedly funny.”

As quick as a flash, she replied: “No.”

Then she pointed to her body guard and said: “But he has.”

In another incident recounted in the book ‘The Wicked Wit of Queen Elizabeth II’, Her Majesty was watching a TV programme involving her cousin-in-law Princess Michael of Kent.

When the Princess told her interviewer that she would like to shoot the Queen’s corgis, the British sovereign shot back: “They’re better behaved than she is.”
