Prince Philip admitted that his wife, Queen Elizabeth II, never craved for appreciation.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s friend Gyles Brandreth in his book writes how Her Majesty led a ‘normal’ life.

He wrote: “From the moment of her coronation onwards, for more than 70 years, Elizabeth II was the object of adulation. People bowed and curtseyed before her on a daily basis. When she went on international tours, hundreds and thousands – on occasion, millions – turned out to cheer.”

Mr Brandreth continued: “‘It didn’t affect her at all,’ the Duke of Edinburgh said to me. ‘She never for a moment thought the cheering was for her personally. It’s for the position she holds – it’s for the role she fulfills, it’s because she’s Queen.

“‘That’s all. She knows that. Her head hasn’t been turned by being Queen – not at all. She’s quite normal,’” he noted.
