Looking behind the palace walls and getting an impression of how the royal family lives - that's what many royal fans want. It's not without reason that Netflix series like "The Crown" or royal biographies are so popular.
With "Elizabeth: An Intimate Portrait" another book will be published in December that promises exactly that: a look behind the scenes. Author Gyles Brandreth is an author, royal expert and former politician. In his work he describes, among other things, the last days of the Queen's life.
"Saturday and Sunday, September 3rd and 4th. It is the weekend before the death of the Queen. The Reverend Dr Iain Greenshields, who is staying with her at Balmoral, finds her 'in fantastic shape'," his book reads. from which the "Daily Mail" published an excerpt. The pastor is said to have had dinner with the Queen on Saturday night and also visited her on Sunday afternoon. They talked about "the Queen's childhood, her horses, church affairs (she is 'up to date') and her sadness about what was happening in Ukraine," explains Brandreth.
Then on Tuesday, the Queen spoke to Clive Cox, one of her favorite racehorse trainers. "'We talked about the filly,' he said, 'how the race could develop, how another horse of hers is doing in my stable and a few other things. She was quick-witted,'" Brandreth quoted the trainer as saying. It is the day that the Queen's last photograph will be taken and that she met the short-term Prime Minister, Liz Truss. It shows her thin but with a mischievous grin on her face, just like she was known to do.
The following Wednesday is relatively uneventful. The royals go about their usual business. But rumors about the Queen's health are getting louder again. "My son-in-law (a former officer in the Coldstream Guards) calls me to say he is in the Cavalry
The next day, the Queen's doctor announced that he was concerned about her condition. Her son, now King Charles III, and a wife, Camilla, are immediately driven to Balmoral Castle. Princess Anne was already with her mother at the time. When the rest of the family arrives, the Queen is already dead. "The truth is that Her Majesty always knew that her time was limited. She accepted this with all the grace one would expect," Brandreth writes about his impression of the monarch.
In his book he also talks about a possible illness of the Queen. "I had heard that the Queen had a form of myeloma - bone marrow cancer - which would explain her fatigue, weight loss and the 'mobility problems' we were often told about in the last year of her life. The most common symptom of myeloma is bone pain, particularly in the pelvis and lower back, and multiple myeloma is a disease that commonly affects the elderly," he writes, explaining, "There is currently no known cure, but there is a treatment -- including immune-regulating drugs and pharmaceuticals , which prevent bone weakening - can reduce the severity of symptoms and increase the patient's survival time by months or two to three years."
In fact, the Scottish National Archives published Queen Elizabeth II's death certificate three weeks after her death. It now revealed the monarch's cause of death. Accordingly, she died of old age on September 8 at 3:10 p.m. local time.
