Queen Elizabeth has been photographed thousands of times ever since she was a young girl. But she has always wanted to pose in a certain way.

But according to sources, Her Majesty is not allowed to pose with her hands in her pockets because this could make her look distant from those who are looking at her photos.

The Queen Mother was also one of the people who prevented the monarch from posing in such a way. But her dream finally came true when her senior dresser and good friend, Angela Kelly, agreed to take the Queen’s photo while doing the less formal pose.

In her book “The Other Side of the Coin,” Kelly revealed that she had the idea when she was writing her first book, “Dressing the Queen.” “ I wondered if I might have a wonderful opportunity to make the Queen's wish come true,” she said.

While speaking with Hello! magazine, Kelly asked the Queen if she would do her a favor and pose with her hands in her pockets for an image that will be included in her book. And the Queen couldn’t be happier to oblige.

“The Queen looked at me in amazement as I asked whether she knew the implications of the photographs. Her Majesty took her position in front of the lens and started striking a series of poses, slipping her hands in and out of her pockets and placing them onto her hips, mimicking the stances of a professional model. I stood by in disbelief - The Queen was a natural Barry and I felt we were experiencing something really special: a moment never to be repeated,” Kelly said.

Her Majesty and Kelly have a very special relationship with each other. They have been friends since the latter joined the former’s team in 2002. Since then, Kelly has been dubbed as one of the Queen’s most trusted staff. She is also the only royal staff who was allowed to write a book about Her Majesty.
