Queen Elizabeth “loathed” Boris Johnson, the report said

THE late Queen ‘loathed’ Boris Johnson, it has been claimed.

Writing in the Sunday Timesthe paper’s chief political commentator, Tim Shipman, quoted sources as suggesting that former Tory leader had replaced Tony Blair as the monarch’s “least favorite” prime minister.

During her 70-year reign, Queen Elizabeth had dealings with 15 different Prime Ministers of the United Kingdom. The first was Winston Churchill, who had reprized the role in 1951, a year before Elizabeth ascended the throne.

The finale was Liz Truss, who was formally asked by the Queen to form a government just days before her death.

When Churchill retired, the Queen sent him a letter saying that no future Prime Minister “would ever be able for me to take the place of my first”.

Reportedly once asked by a French diplomat who her favorite Prime Minister was, the Queen said that the question should be who her “unfavourite” was, with the answer being Tony Blair.

The late monarch is said to have hated the term “people’s princess” coined for Diana by Blair and his screenwriter Alastair Campbell.

However, a palace source suggested to the Sunday Times that the Queen’s dislike of Johnson had eclipsed Blair.

The anonymous source told the newspaper after the Queen’s death: “At least she will be spared having to knight Boris.”

They continued: “I think she loathes Boris because of his behavior.”

“He went around calling her ‘Her Maj’ and never gave her any useful advice. They would have expected a Prime Minister to help clean up the mess with Prince Andrew, but Boris couldn’t help because he was embroiled in a scandal of his own.”

Johnson – who was forced to resign as Prime Minister after lying about knowing about allegations of sexually inappropriate behavior made against a member of his government – has twice been forced to apologize to the Queen.

The first time came in 2019 after the Supreme Court ruled that his parliamentary prorogation had not been lawful.

The second came after it emerged that – at No 10 and under Johnson’s guard – two farewell parties had been held with staff who were on the same day Queen Elizabeth was forced to attend her late husband’s funeral alone due to Covid , had partied until the early hours of the morning -19 restrictions.
