Queen Elizabeth II Actually Hid In The Bushes To Get Away From This Problematic Guest

Queen Elizabeth II once reached her breaking point while hosting one particular guest in the past.

In the new ITV documentary Our Queen: Inside the Crown, it was revealed that the 94-year-old royal actually hid in a bush to avoid Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceaușescu.

The dictator came to England on a state visit with his wife Elena in 1978 and fulfilling her duty as monarch, Elizabeth and husband, Prince Philip, met the couple at the train station and joined them on a carriage ride back to Buckingham Palace.

However, despite the outward appearance of welcoming Ceaușescu, there was a moment that she couldn’t take it anymore and slipped out of view.

“On the occasion when they were staying she took the corgis out for a walk in the palace gardens and she could see the Ceaușescus coming the other way,” Robert Hardman shared in the program (via People).

“She thought, ‘I really can’t face talking to them,’ so the first and only time in her life, she actually hid in a bush in the palace gardens to avoid her guests.”

Former British Foreign Secretary Lord David Owen added that, “The Queen puts up with many different people, but Ceaușescu was too much for her…She made it quite plain she didn’t like that visit!”

If you missed it, there is a rumor that Queen Elizabeth might be staying in quarantine and out of public view until the fall.

Queen Elizabeth Makes Rare TV Address Amid Pandemic: 'Better Days Will Return' - Watch (Video)

Queen Elizabeth is assuring the United Kingdom.

The 93-year-old monarch made a rare television address on Sunday evening (April 6) to speak to the nation amid the ongoing pandemic.

“I am speaking to you at what I know is an increasingly challenging time. A time of disruption in the life of our country: a disruption that has brought grief to some, financial difficulties to many, and enormous changes to the daily lives of us all. I want to thank everyone on the NHS frontline as well as care workers and those carrying out essential roles, who selflessly carry out day-to-day duties outside the home in support of us all. What you do is appreciated and every hour of your hard work brings us closer to a return to normal times,” she said.

“Together we are tackling this disease. If we remain united and resolute, we will overcome it…the pride in who we are is not a part of our past; it defines our present and our future. The moments when the U.K. has come together to applaud its care and essential workers will be remembered as a symbol of our national spirit,” she went on to say.

She also said that self-isolation offers the “opportunity to slow down, pause and reflect,” reminding her of “the very first broadcast I made in 1940,” when she and her younger sister Princess Margaret spoke at Windsor Castle on the radio.

“Today, many will feel a painful sense of separation from their loves ones. But it’s the right thing to do…we will succeed and that success will belong to every one of us. We should take comfort that while we have more to endure, better days will return. We will be with our friends again. We will be with our families again. We will meet again.”

The address comes after news broke that this annual royal event was canceled.
