Royal gaffe: Queen creates Twitterstorm after cheeky home item she owns is revealed


The travel and wardrobe options for royals are well known but what is less talked about, is the items that some Royal Family members have in their homes. To mark the 90th birthday in 2016, ITV sanctioned a documentary called ‘The Queen at 90’ which offered a glimpse into Her Majesty’s day to day life.

Every year, the Queen travels to Balmoral to spend the summer with her family.

While filming a segment during the documentary, the cameras caught a moment when the Queen invited then Prime Minister, David Cameron to Balmoral.

As the cameras spanned around the room, they picked up on a cushion that was placed on Her Majesty’s sofa.

On the cushion, it stated, “it’s good to be Queen”, much to the delights of viewers who saw the piece of homeware.

Quickly viewers wrote about their hilarity overseeing the Queen’s cushion.

Geraldine Carr wrote: “The Queen has the best cushion.”

Vic Thompson wrote: “Tonight we have learned that the Queen has a cushion bearing the slogan ‘It’s good to be Queen’. Marvellous.”

Away from how the Queen has styled her own home, it has been revealed how the Queen has put her own health at risk in order to serve the public.

The operation was to remove a torn cartilage from the joining but that did not stop her Majesty from returning to service.

At the time, Buckingham Palace released a statement which read: “The Queen is expected to be fully active again within a few weeks.

“Her Majesty will rest at Sandringham over the next two weeks and will then resume a limited programme of engagements until she has made a full recovery.”

Her Majesty has since had a reoccurrence of the problem but defiantly carried on.

In a statement after Her majesty took some friends to see the Chelsea Flower Show, Buckingham Palace said: “She is incredibly brave.

“People from her and Philip’s generation battle through problems and carry on.

“And Her Majesty doesn’t like to cause any fuss.”

In 2017, Prince Philip retired from royal duties.

The Duke of Edinburgh now spends his time in Sandringham on a cottage on the royal estate.

Philip underwent an operation in 2017 on his hip and has made a full recovery.
