  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Queen calls Matt Hancock ‘poor man’ as she restarts in-person audiences with Boris Johnson” – below is their description.

    The confidential nature of the Queen’s weekly audiences with her serving prime minister has always been highly prized.

    But a brief clip of Her Majesty receiving Boris Johnson on Wednesday offered a rare insight into the historic meetings, as she revealed Matt Hancock had told her: “Things are getting better.”

    The Queen, 95, described the Health Secretary as a “poor man,” an apparent reference to the pressure he has faced throughout the pandemic.

    A royal aide insisted that her comments were not choreographed, saying: “It was a natural conversation.”

    The Queen and Boris Johnson, who were together at the G7 summit earlier this month, have conducted their audiences by telephone ever since the coronavirus pandemic swept through the nation.
