Joanna Lumley opens up on awkward encounter with Queen 'Why are you here?'


“I just wanted to have all kinds of other people’s opinions on what it was like to meet her, so I have collected together stories and diary pieces, and firsthand accounts from people as long ago as Winston Churchill.”

The activist explained she has put the stories and accounts together as a kind of “jigsaw puzzle” as a “tribute to Her Majesty”. 

Joanna admitted she’d been a royal fan ever since she first heard of the Queen when she was seven at the time she was crowned. 

Host Dan couldn’t resist asking Joanna what it was like to have had the privilege of meeting the Queen, which she touches upon in her book.
