LONDON. “Old is who it feels like”. Be warned: don’t try to call Elizabeth II that. Or to consider her an “old woman”. Because the sovereign, at 95, does not consider herself such at all. The confirmation, as well as from his tireless participation in events and public celebrations, now also comes from a latest revelation.
Gyles Brandreth, presenter and president of the English magazine for the elderly Oldie magazine, in fact, announced that the queen, with a “beautiful letter” signed by her private secretary Tom Laing-Baker, refused the award linked to its publication.
