JJ Chalmers reveals Queen Elizabeth liked watched Strictly Come Dancing

OHMYGOSSIP — JJ Chalmers has revealed Queen Elizabeth was a fan of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.
The former Royal Marine and Invictus Games medallist – who is close friends with Prince Harry and appeared on the BBC Latin and ballroom show in 2020 – has opened up on a note the late monarch wrote to his father, who was previously her chaplain.
Appearing on BBC News on Monday (12.09.22) during the coverage of the vigil in Scotland following the queen’s death last week, he told broadcaster Huw Edwards about sweet note.
He said: “One of the most lovely things I’d ever seen is following the death of [the Queen’s] husband [Prince Philip], my father had obviously written to her, and she returned a letter which was typed and had all the sort of expected notes within it.
“But at the bottom was a hand-written message that said, ‘I’ve just realised that the JJ Chalmers who I’ve been watching on the coverage of my husband’s funeral is the same JJ Chalmers that you told me of being injured all those years ago’, and also a line that said ‘and the same JJ Chalmers I enjoyed watching on Strictly Dancing’.
“That’s the great thing, it tells you two things – she has an incredible memory, but also she watches Strictly.”
Edwards joked that it was “the revelation of the day”, noting he wasn’t “entirely surprised” to learn that Her Majesty was a fan of the show.
Elsewhere on the BBC’s coverage, writer Frank Cottrell-Boyce opened up on his experience working with the Queen on the famous ‘Paddington’ sketch as part of her Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June.
He said: “I think that was true happiness. She was someone who was approaching the end of her life. She knew she was. And this is a sign off, isn’t it?”
