Britain Has Declared The Queen A ‘Badass’ Because She Used Her Pockets

Royals! They’re just like us.

Today on the Internet, British tabloids are in a tizzy over a “shocking” (their words) pose the Queen has taken in her latest portrait.

The photoshoot, which was published by Hello magazine, pictures her majesty – grin on her mug – standing casually with her hands in her pockets.

In case you missed that, the headline-making news is that her hands were in her pockets.

As The Sun reports, the monarch’s dressmaker, Angela Kelly, revealed that Queenie has long wanted to have a chilled out photoshoot, but the powers that be deemed that move “inappropriate”. I mean, dudes, it’s not like she suggested flipping the bird… the woman seemingly just wanted to look less like a statue to people.

Sheesh, people.

Anyway. It appears that at 93-years-old, the Queen is over being told what to do, and went ahead and had her photo taken the way she wanted it. The tiny act has had a huge response. People are literally calling her majesty a “badass” as a direct result.

But isn’t this such a clear reflection of how restrictive the rules the Royals live by are?

Look at how happy and relaxed she seems! She might as well be making a shaka sign. It’s bloody lovely.

One of life’s greatest joys is finding a dress with pockets and shoving your hands into them, yes. But this is the Queen of England, surely this shouldn’t be a big deal.

Tabloids Have Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Dreaming Of Leaving The UK

Enough, now.

It’s no secret that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been having a difficult time. Since the pair became an official couple, they’ve been scrutinised from every angle.

The negativity the pair have been met with is astounding and it’s impacted them so profoundly that not only are they taking legal action against certain tabloids, they’re considering leaving the UK altogether.

As Cosmopolitan shares, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be taking an extended break from their duties; focusing on “family time” for six weeks in both the US and UK.

This includes a Thanksgiving visit to the States for the new parents and Archie, where they are believed to be spending the holiday in Los Angeles with Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland.

Interestingly, however, it appears that Harry and Meghan are fantasising about a more permanent break from the intensity of life in England.

According to Cosmo, Harry was asked about his views on potentially relocating to Africa during an interview for the documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey. On this topic, he said that he and Meghan see Cape Town as an ideal base, but that he doesn’t see it working right now.

“I don’t know where we could live in Africa at the moment,” he said.

“We’ve just come from Cape Town, that would be an amazing place for us to be able to base ourselves, of course it would…But with all the problems that are going on there I just don’t see how we would be able to make as much difference as we want to without the issues and the judgment of how we would be with those surroundings.”

Notice how he mentioned the “judgement” they’d receive?

These people can’t make any decisions for themselves without being torn apart by some unsatisfied party. What a tough predicament to be in.

Speaking on the cruel treatment Meghan has received since joining the Royal Family, Harry recently revealed that:

“There is a human cost to this relentless propaganda, specifically when it is knowingly false and malicious, and though we have continued to put on a brave face—as so many of you can relate to—I cannot begin to describe how painful it has been.”

With experiences like that, you can’t really blame Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for dreaming of leaving, can you?
