Queen’s Favorite TV Show Revealed
It’s no secret that the royals are enjoying a night out in front of the box with William and Kate, who are said to be fans of Killing Eve, while Princess Charlotte loves vintage children’s show The Clangers.
And there have been a few guesses about the Queen’s favorite thing on the box, from The Bill to Pointless, but now we can finally reveal what Her Majesty is putting her feet up to.
The monarch revealed her favorite show in a chat with BBC Radio 2 editor Phil Jones during their meeting at Buckingham Palace in 2001.
Jones had kept her confession secret for 21 years after being told that a journalist should never reveal his conversations with a monarch.
But after retiring in January, Jones shared his “surreal” conversation with the monarch New statesman.
After confessing her love to the late Radio 2 DJ Terry Wogan, Jones asked Her Majesty what her favorite show was.
Jones reveals her response, writing, “She immediately said, ‘The Kumars in #42’ and, more amazingly, went on to recite some of the one-liners from the granny character, played by the brilliant Meera Syal. “
Originally airing in 2001, the comedy series revolves around Sanjeev Kumar (Sanjeev Bhaskar), an aspiring chat show host who negotiates with celebrity guests visiting his Wembley home while his family tries to get on board.
