Although Helen Mirren has played the Queen and can see the appeal, she admits that she couldn’t handle all the rules and would far rather sneak off to the shops.
"I couldn’t handle the rules the Queen has to live by at all and very few of us could.
During an interview with Woman and Home magazine, Helen also spoke of what she would really like to do if she were a monarch for the day:
"If I were Queen for a day, I would like breakfast in bed and then I’d sneak out incognito and go shopping in Zara.
She continued: "At the end of the day, I’d have a glass of champagne while sitting on the throne – and then I’d happily hand it all back! It’s not a role I’d covet for the long-term."
