GB News: Queen’s role as royal ‘team player’ paved way for successful reign, expert says

Brits paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II during Her Majesty’s state funeral on Monday. However, the Queen’s 70-year reign is still being analysed by royal experts.

Robert Lacey joined Dan Wootton on GB News to discuss the late monarch’s reign as well as what Brits can expect under her son King Charles III.

Mr Lacey claimed the Queen’s role as a “team player” helped pave the way for her successful reign.

He said: “The most successful royals are the humble ones who realise it is not all about me.

“And you can immediately think of one royal who does think it is all about him and has come to grief as a result.

Lacey added: “I think the great secret of the Queen’s success is that she wasn’t born into the main line of succession.
