    Queen Elizabeth loves to do the washing up

    The 94-year-old royal relishes the chance to put on some Marigold gloves and start scrubbing pots and pans, according to former royal butler Paul Burrell


    He explained: "She likes to wash up. She puts on the Marigolds and when she goes out to the log cabin at Balmoral she is stood there with her Marigolds on and washes up and the lady-in-waiting dries. She likes to get her hands wet in the sink."

    Paul, 62 - who was Princess Diana's butler - also revealed that the monarch only ever eats tiny portions of food.

    He observed that the Queen has "great self-discipline".

    Speaking to 'The Secret To' ¬podcast, he explained: "She only ever eats very little portions. She doesn’t eat a Christmas dinner like we do where it is piled high and you can’t see each other across the table.

    "She doesn’t eat like that. If you say anything about the Queen, she has something which the rest of them don’t have - she has great self-discipline."

    Meanwhile, Paul has rubbished the suggestion that the Queen and Prince Philip have a stuffy relationship.

    He also dismissed the idea that they sleep alone, as depicted in the hit Netflix series 'The Crown'.

    Paul said: "They both have a suite of rooms. But there is a joint bedroom in the middle and that is the bedroom they use.

    "So to think the Queen is all alone, all the time in this cold, unfeeling relationship is absolutely not true. Prince Philip adores the Queen."

    What's more, the former butler insisted that the Queen dresses much more "elegantly" than the Netflix show suggests.

    He told The Sun newspaper: "She’s an elegantly dressed woman who wore pink, flowing silk to bed."
