EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Queen will be in lockdown at Windsor for her 94th birthday - the first time she's had to cancel since Hitler’s birthday

EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Queen will be in lockdown at Windsor for her 94th birthday - the first time she's had to cancel since Hitler’s birthday
The Queen will be in lockdown at Windsor for her 94th birthday next Tuesday, but it won’t be the first time she’s had to cancel a party. 
One of her two surviving bridesmaids, Lady Pamela Hicks, who turns 91 on Sunday, reveals they once had a nasty Nazi surprise. 
‘She was living with us when Prince Philip was serving in the Navy and we decided, as mine is the 19th and hers is the 21st, “Why don’t we have a joint birthday party and a dance?”’ says Lady Pamela, daughter of the 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma. 
‘Then we thought, “To be fair, we’d better have it on the intervening day, on the 20th.” Unfortunately, when we looked further, that was Adolf Hitler’s birthday, so we cancelled that date.’

Looking forward to greeting friends and family again with a kiss or a handshake? It could be quite a while, style adviser Peter York warns. 
‘People will be very nervous for a very long time about it,’ the co-author of The Official Sloane Ranger Handbook tells me. 
‘Every human is a danger to you, including, and probably especially, the ones you like best.’ 
Instead, we could follow the Prince of Wales’s lead and use the Hindu greeting with palms touching and fingers pointing upwards. 
‘There’s the namaste bow, which I thought was rather cute when Prince Charles did it. He’s a very polite man.’

The Royal Family should be grateful for Netflix hit The Crown, claims one of its stars. 
Victoria Hamilton, who plays the Queen Mother, says the Windsors owe the writer a huge debt: ‘It’s down to Peter Morgan and the brilliance of his scripts that people just got sucked into those stories. 
‘In many ways, it’s been the best PR the Royal Family could have hoped for.’
