Real reason why Queen refuses to take a break despite her birthday – ‘I stop I drop’
Ingrid Seward, the editor of Majesty Magazine, told Sky News that Queen Elizabeth II believes “if I stop I drop” and therefore the monarch will have kept busy throughout the lockdown period, despite it being her birthday today. Ms Seward also stated that the Queen would have liked to have gone horse riding to celebrate turning 94 but will have decided against it because of the current coronavirus pandemic.
Ms Seward said: “If you think about it, her entire life has been one of duty.
“Even from when she was a tiny child her day was very regulated.
“So she will be very unused to this.
“She has probably been doing some of the things we have all been doing like going through draws and photo albums.
“Certainly, one thing is that she will have been kept busy because she always says ‘if I stop, I drop’.”
Ms Seward added: “Prince Philip always brings her a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
“I presume that someone will definitely do that for him today.
“I think she likes white flowers, she loves flowers so that is what she will have.
“She will probably celebrate with her immediate staff because she is not able to be around anyone else.
“Normally she might perhaps go riding but she certainly would think that was the wrong thing to do at the moment.
“She is very conscious as always of other people and their problems.”
