- It’s almost a responsibility for all the people of the United Kingdom, regardless of race, color or creed, and an understanding that you have an individual connection with each and every one.
- Sarah will talk to me about someone and I don’t know who she’s talking about, but if she talks to my mother, the two of them will know exactly – and across several generations, too.
- The Queen’s intelligence network is a hell of a lot better than anyone’s in this palace. Bar none. She knows everything. I don’t know how she does it. And she sees everything.
- You, I, we all encounter behaviors that we might say, I wouldn’t do that. But she has a huge amount of contact with how people live. She sees more hospices and sink estates than most people.
- When the question arose whether I, as a member of the royal family, should take part in active combat in the Falklands, there was no question in her mind, and it only took her two days to sort the issue.
- Her friends say she is very funny. At a family dinner, she stood to go, and the footman very properly pulled her chair away. At that moment I asked her a question and she sat down again, except there was no chair. Everyone, including the Queen, laughed and laughed.
- I’ll tell you where the injustice is. It’s with the person earning £12,000 to £15,000-a-year who is being asked to be restrained by their business or employer. Yet the taxpayer has bailed out the banks, so why are they not showing restraint?
- I’m in a privileged position and I’m going to do my utmost to use that privileged position on behalf of the U.K., its citizens, its businesses and people.
- It would not be a bad idea if bankers were to go and sit occasionally with politicians in their political surgeries, where they might get a sense of the injustice that some of the community feel about the banks.
- It’s slightly complicated for people to grasp the idea of a head of state in human form.
- We’ve had American TV shows in Britain for years and that hasn’t affected our culture at all.
- I look at Canada like a second home.
- People say to me, ‘Would you like to swap your life with me for 24 hours? Your life must be very strange.’
- People say to me, Would you like to swap your life with me for 24 hours? Your life must be very strange. But of course I have not experienced any other life. It’s not strange to me.
- The Royal Family have always had an interest in a number of different areas of society. We are a part of society.
- Today is reality. Yesterday is history.
- I could have worse tags than ‘Airmiles Andy’ – although I don’t know what they are.
- She is incredibly fit, but we remind staff that she’s not just the monarch, but our mother.
- I’ve always been told I was extremely well-behaved as a kid.
