Britain’s Queen Elizabeth is obsessed with soap operas.

Ladies Day at Royal AscotBritain’s Queen Elizabeth has installed Sky + in her royal residences so she can catch up with her favourite TV shows on-demand.


The 87-year-old monarch has ensured she never misses an episode of ‘Coronation Street’ or ‘EastEnders’ by having a digital recording service installed at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle so she can catch up on her TV favourites on-demand.


Actress Minnie Driver told the Daily Star newspaper: “I went to Windsor Castle as The Queen was getting an honorary Bafta.


“She came over to our group and we talked about film and she asked me what the last movie I had seen was and it was something really dirty. It was ‘Last Tango In Paris’.


“I didn’t think I could bring up a film like that to The Queen and I obviously lied. Then I couldn’t help myself and asked what the last film she had seen was and she said, ‘Oh I saw something in Leicester Square a long time ago.’


“So I asked, ‘Don’t you have Sky+?’ And she went, ‘One does have Sky+, but one is so busy all the time.”


The ‘Good Will Hunting’ star also joked she spent most of her encounter with the queen worrying she would call her Pam.


Minnie said: “All I was worried about was someone said you call The Queen ‘Your Majesty’ first of all and after that you call her ‘Ma’am’ to rhyme with Pam.


“And I was so worried I was going to call her Pam.”
