Royal Family LIVE – Queen ‘loses temper with Prince Charles for not swallowing his pride over Prince Harry and Meghan’

QUEEN SPEAKS PUBLICLY FOR FIRST TIME SINCE PHILIP’S DEATH

The Queen joked about her age in a video call as she spoke publicly for the first time since Prince Philip’s death.

The monarch, 95, described feeling “very proud” at becoming the first young person to receive a lifesaving swimming badge – but quipped “that’s terrible” when learning it was 80 years ago.

er Majesty spoke about her teenage years growing up in the Second World War and recalled her pride earning a Junior Respiration Award from the Royal Life Saving Society.

She was 14-years-old when she joined sister Princess Margaret for swimming lessons at the Bath Club, a gentleman’s club in Dover Street, Mayfair, in 1941.

Speaking on a video call with the Royal Life Saving Society released today, she said: “I didn’t realise I was the first one. I just did it, and had to work very hard for it.

“It’s a very long time ago, I’m afraid, I think it’s changed a lot.”
