The late Queen was in favour of remaining in the European Union, her former communications director Sally Osman claimed in an interview with CNN’s TV host Christiane Amanpour. She said numerous people have tried to collect her views on Brexit, citing the Sun Editor Tony Callagher who famously claimed the Queen “strongly” believe the United Kingdom should leave the EU. Ms Sally Osman dismissed the claim, alleging the Queen is in fact against Brexit.

“People are trying to bring the Queen into politics: ‘The Queen backs Brexit'”, she said referring to the Sun editor’s claim that Her Majesty supports Brexit.
Ms Osman said: “I don’t know if you remember that headline from the page of The Sun.”

Ms Osman continued: “I don’t think so.
“She can ask very pertinent questions, that’s for sure.”
Ms Amanpour said: “You’ve just given us some breaking news, Sally.”
