Queen has wicked sense of humour and secret hidden talent for copying accents

The UK is home to some of the world's best impersonators.

From Alistair McGowan and Ronni Ancona, to Rory Bremner – it's clear that this country has a deep talent pool.

But now we might have to add a surprising new name to the list.

According to dress maker Angela Kelly, who makes dresses for Her Majesty The Queen, the 95-year-old Monarch has a unique ability to mimic accents.

An interview with Ms Kelly from 2007, which resurfaced this week, divulged how the Queen can do a very good scouse accent.

She said: “We have a lot of fun together. The Queen has a wicked sense of humour and is a great mimic.

“She can do all accents — including mine.

Ms Kelly is the daughter of a Liverpool-born dockworker, reports The Mirror, and had the approval from the Queen herself to write her book The Other Side of The Coin: The Queen, The Dresser and the Wardrobe.

She still works for Her Majesty, and is, apparently, solely responsible for her wardrobe.

She was discovered in October, 1992, while working as a housekeep for the-then British Ambassador to Germany, Sir Christopher Mallaby.

According to Town and Country magazine, The Queen and Prince Philip visited Mallaby's home during an official royal visit to Germany, and met Ms Kelly while there.

She told the royal couple that she was planning on returning to Britain, and was offered a position as a dresser for the Queen.

She said: “I suppose the Queen must have liked me and decided I was trustworthy and discreet.”

She does have her own fashion label, called Kelly & Podrum, which she founded alongside fellow dressmaker Alison Podrum.

The mother-of-three is divorced, and was made a lieutenant of the Royal Victorian Order in 2012, which is only given to those who have served to royal family.
