In an extract from the book, published by the Daily Mirror, Morton said: “The Queen was positively playful on the day of her grandson’s nuptials, ‘practically skipping’ according to one observer, absolutely thrilled at the way the public had reacted to the royal newlyweds.”

The reason behind this was due to the fact that the last few marriages within the Royal Family had failed.

Kate and William’s wedding felt as though it was “securing” the monarchy, for the Queen.

The Queen was reportedly “thrilled” by how well the public reacted to William and Kate’s marriage.

“She had a sense that the future of the Royal Family, her family, was now secure,” Morton wrote.

“The monarchy was once again held in admiration and affection by the masses.”

And the fact that the Cambridges are still together 11 years later will undoubtedly please the Queen further.
