Queen’s aides wish monarch had ‘peace and quiet’ amid royal family dramas

Aides close to the Queen believe that she would benefit from some "peace and quiet" according to a royal expert.

The Queen has had a difficult time over the last couple of years, Sunday Times Royal editor Roya Nikkhah says, explaining that the monarch has faced health problems as well as family drama.

The 96-year-old's closest aides have expressed concern over the Queen's health, and believe that some relief from the stress of family drama could help her, the Express reports.

Ms Nikkhah shares these views, but is uncertain how much relief there will be for someone who has become such a lynchpin of the Monarchy.

She told Times Radio: "I think the Queen is tough. She has had a very tough couple of years, but so are of some of her family.

"I think there's a general feeling that a lot of people around her wish that she might just have a little bit of peace, peace and quiet, in terms of dramatisations of her family dramas.

"But, you know, the Royal Family, there are a lot of storylines that keep producing extraordinary things."

Not least among these are the allegations surrounding her son Prince Andrew due to his connections with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell.

Andrew has formally withdrawn from public life after settling a civil case with Virginia Giuffre out of court.

Also on the horizon is the prospect of further drama involving the Sussexes, as Prince Harry's upcoming memoirs.

The Queen has seen difficulties with her health in recent months, having to miss a number of royal engagements.

Last October also saw the Queen pictured using a walking stick for the first time since the early 2000s when she underwent an operation on her knee.

The monarch was attending a service at Westminster Abbey to mark 100 years of the Royal British Legion.

Fresh concerns around the Queen's health were sparked after it was confirmed that the welcome ceremony at Balmoral would be cancelled and replaced with a private event inside the castle grounds, with no reporters or cameras invited.
