Queen Elizabeth has ‘great compassion for people’
Britain’s Queen Elizabeth has a “great compassion for people”.
The 89-year-old monarch’s cameraman Peter Wilkinson has revealed what he’s learned about her and the rest of the royal family over the past 18 years.
He said: “There is no point in the Queen getting distressed with people because that wouldn’t help anyone, but she has a great compassion for people.”
Despite being much younger than the Queen, Peter has confessed he sometimes struggles to maintain the same pace as her when filming her carrying out her royal duties.
He told HELLO! magazine: “She’s just amazing, the stamina. I get home at the end of the day, I’m absolutely exhausted trying to keep up with her.”
Peter – who previously worked as a cameraman in war zones – has yet to become bored of filming the Queen and her family at special events.
He explained: “The Queen knows me now, I’m sure she trusts me, we get on very well.
I love my job. I have had the most incredible career and I have seen things most people couldn’t imagine.”
Peter also admitted that he loves seeing how well the Queen gets on with her husband of nearly 70 years, the Duke of Edinburgh.
He added: “He’s got everyone in hysterics, he makes everyone laugh. He’s an amazing man and he makes the Queen laugh every day.”
