Yes, absolutely. I'm a very opinionated and politically charged person and I don't think I could handle not being able to say anything for so long the way she has. It's truly a remarkable ability to keep neutral in all situations. Though I'm sure she and Philip have gone off behind closed doors in private quarters.

I'm not political at all but I've learned something these past few days.

In a country where the government is in a state of topsy-turvy and without a crystal ball, we cannot predict what is going to happen. One thing remains stable and secure and that is HM, The Queen. She remains steadfast and keeps calm and carries on.

The article is behind a paywall, but it seems that Mrs. May misled the queen about her deal with the DUP.

Edit:
The Daily Mail copied the story from the Times:
Queen's fury with May: Palace aides say PM misled monarch | Daily Mail Online

Not the best news to become public a few hours before Mrs. May's conference speech. The article focusses mainly on impressions and opinions of aides, not of the Queen herself.

Edit: article on the same topic by Politico:

I've read the Times article, and much of it is covered in the DF article you posted above.

We must also bear in mind that the papers often claims that the Queen is dismayed by her prime ministers, and this is the third or fourth story about HM and May's relationship so far. The same happened with Thatcher, Blair and Cameron.

If the article is correct then I would be gravely concerned if constitutional procedures have not been followed correctly.

The story is odd. I wonder what prompted such belated leak. I have an impression that Mrs May's credibility came under attack.

I thought ministers were servants of the Crown and have to request The Queen to be dismissed. But it seems not to work that way in the United Kingdom, they have to request the Prime Minister, who is apparently also the real Boss.
See: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DsCBmlXXcAAUvTh.jpg

As a Dutchman I am used to ministers who offer their portfolio into His Majesty's consideration. (The King will then let know, via his Cabinet, if he approves the requested dismissal or not).

Interesting to see the different constitutional positions between monarchies.
