THE QUEEN’S surprising hidden talent has been laid bare by a close aide to the 95-year-old monarch.

“The Queen has a wicked sense of humour and is a great mimic.

“She can do all accents – including mine.”

Ms Kelly, the Queen’s dresser, is the daughter of a Liverpudlian dockworker.

She also received the monarch’s support for her book ‘The Other Side of the Coin: The Queen, The Dresser and The Wardrobe’.

But Ms Kelly isn’t the only Palace insider to have revealed the Queen’s hidden talent.

Princess Diana’s former butler Paul Burrell once said: “She has a great sense of humour and a guttural laugh.

“When she travels through the country she loves to hear regional accents.

“She loves to hear a Scouse accent or a Birmingham accent or a Welsh accent or a Scottish accent.

“She will come back and she’ll do the accent.

“She does a great Scouse accent.”

According to a recent survey by dating app ‘happn’, the Queen’s “love” for the Scottish and Welsh accent is not unusual as Brits rank them as the UK’s first and third ‘s*xiest’.

Geordie finished in second place, Northern Irish in fourth and the Queen’s English in fifth.

However, the Queen’s passion for both the Liverpudlian and Brummie accent is much lower as they were ranked as the nation’s fifth and third most unattractive dialects.

But the Essex accent came out on top as the UK’s least attractive, narrowly piping Leeds to pole position.
