QUEEN Elizabeth II is curious to see whether the new season of The Crown will show her mother getting as hammered as she did in real life, palace insiders have confirmed.
Her Royal Highness is reportedly hoping that the Queen Mother will be portrayed as the massive pisshead she was, as she believes this is ‘how dear old mummy would want to be remembered’.
A source said: “Her Majesty has such fond memories of coming down of a morning and seeing her mother enjoying a bowl of cornflakes and gin before challenging one of the footmen to a fight.
“Everyone at the palace felt it was a privilege to witness her pack it away. All those young lightweights like Liam Gallagher or Peter Doherty were never a patch on her.
“The Queen feels it would be a crying shame if viewers aren’t treated to at least one scene of her standing on the banqueting table belting out ‘Rule Britannia’ and waving a bottle of Martini above her head.
“At the very least it will distract from her tedious kids and their spouses. What an embarrassment.”
