The Queen is merely ‘a countryside woman of limited intelligence’, the writer of hit royal series The Crown has claimed.
In remarks sure to raise eyebrows amongst the millions of fans of the hit show, screenwriter Peter Morgan has insisted the monarch ‘would have much preferred looking after her dogs and breeding horses to being queen’.
‘If you had told me I would be doing this, I would have told you it was mad, hallucinogenic conjecture’, Mr Morgan – known for his republican sentiments – mused in the Sunday Times magazine.
‘I wouldn’t have guessed there would be anything more to say about this countryside woman of limited intelligence who would have much preferred looking after her dogs and breeding horses to being Queen.’
No one really has said over the years that Our Brenda has a towering intellect. She’s not going to be extending Wittgenstein, nor Einstein.
She is canny though, as many have also noted.
There is though a certain amusement at Fritz himself, married as he was to one of the Princesses Schwartzenberg, having a pop at the system of aristocracy and monarchy.
