London: Queen Elizabeth II is reportedly “dismayed” at the inability of Britain’s political class to govern properly, according to a UK media report. The 93-year-old monarch, who traditionally stays publicly neutral on political matters, is believed to have made the comments at a private event shortly after David Cameron’s resignation as British Prime Minister following the Brexit referendum in June 2016. A royal source described by ‘The Sunday Times’ as “impeccable” told the newspaper that the Queen’s frustration has only grown since then.

I’ve heard her talking about her disappointment in the current political class and its inability to govern correctly,” the source is quoted as saying.”She expressed her exasperation and frustration about the quality of our political leadership, and that frustration will only have grown,” said the senior royal source, who claims to have witnessed the Queen’s rare conversation on politics. The revelation comes as there is growing media speculation amid Buckingham Palace and Downing Street holding discussions about how to keep the monarch out of any looming constitutional crisis over Brexit and Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s pledge to leave the European Union (EU) by the October 31 deadline, with or without a deal.
