Queen Elizabeth II’s fondness for football has just been revealed in the new biography, “Charles at 70: Thoughts, Hopes and Dreams."

Robert Jobson, the author of the book, claimed that Her Majesty used to play football during her holidays in Norfolk, and she has acted as the goalkeeper.

“During holidays – Christmas and the New Year at Sandringham and most of the summer holidays at Balmoral – the whole family would play football, with the diminutive Queen acting as goalkeeper,” he wrote (via Daily Star).

However, Jobson didn’t share when the 92-year-old monarch stopped playing the sport. A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace said that they do not comment on such personal matters.

But one of the Queen’s proudest football moments was in 1966 when she presented the Jules Remy Trophy to Bobby Moore, the captain of the England Team after he led their win against West Germany with a score of 4 to 2 in the World Cup.

As of late, Her Majesty has not revealed that name of the team that she supports. But there have been speculations suggesting that she’s a huge fan of Moore’s old team the West Ham. On the other hand, there have also been reports claiming that she is an Arsenal fan.

In related news, the monarch was also invited to open the Emirates Stadium back in 2006, but she wasn’t able to go because of her bad back.

“Now, we know the Queen is absolutely above politics. She may be above football, too, but many locals harbor this quite secret view that she’s actually, privately, a Gooner,” Jeremy Corbyn, a Gunners fan, said.

Meanwhile, the Queen also made headlines after her worst year, 1992, has been revisited this week. At that time, Her Majesty was supposed to deliver a speech marking the 40th anniversary of her succession to the throne or her ruby jubilee. Windsor Castle caught fire, which resulted in extensive damage, and the Queen was greatly affected by it.
