SAN FRANCISCO — Sir Elton John is dishing about the time he watched the Queen slap her nephew.
He says it happened during a party many years ago. The queen had asked her nephew, Viscount Linley, to watch his sister, who wasn’t feeling well. When Linley refused, Elton John says her Royal Highness lightly slapped him across the face while saying: “Don’t argue with me. I am the Queen!” Her nephew eventually obliged. John says when the Queen noticed he was watching, she winked at him and walked away.
John’s official autobiography will be released on October 15.
