So there is meat to the story after all……
It’s now a leaked story, not just a claim, so the Queen is as upset about the direction of Europe (open borders, Islamization, crime waves) as the rest of us.
Storm over who leaked Queen’s views on the EU: Spotlight on Gove over claim Her Majesty told Clegg Europe ‘was going in wrong direction’
Buckingham Palace was furious that the monarch had been dragged into the increasingly bitter EU referendum debate. Whitehall sources pointed the finger of blame at Michael Gove (pictured right) for allegedly leaking comments made by the Queen at a lunch with ministers at Windsor Castle in Berkshire in 2011.
They said Mr Gove – one of four ministers at the lunch and now an Out campaigner – was the ‘most likely suspect’ after a newspaper report suggested Her Majesty had declared the EU was ‘heading in the wrong direction’. The Queen is said to have made her views known to Europhile Nick Clegg (left), who was then Deputy Prime Minister.
