Royal fans praise the Queen

Taking to Twitter, one said: “The Queen cancelled her Christmas, sat at her husbands funeral alone, sticking to the rules we all had on us, true leader!

“@BorisJohnson party has parties, affairs, eye tests miles away, laughs about it on camera, you’re laughing at everyone while you do different! #BorisResign.”

Another wrote: “Her majesty the Queen leads by example, cancelled her pre Christmas family dinner and not going to Sandringham. Shame Boris and his hoods didn’t show the same dedication to the UK.”
