These are the questions the public REALLY want to ask the Queen

You've probably heard of Queen Elizabeth II. That woman off the stamps?

On 21 April 2016 the longest-lived British monarch turns the grand old age of 90 - frustrating Prince Charles with her seemingly indestructible endurance and edging ever closer to that bizarre moment when she sends herself a congratulatory 100th birthday message.

Despite her many years in service to the nation, most of us are yet to meet her majesty, meaning that we've been harbouring a number of questions we'd love to know the answer to.

Inspired by the news that she was once asked "Have you met the Queen?" by an American tourist, Eventbrite carried out a survey of some 2,000 subjects (/peasants) as to what they'd most like to enquire of her majesty. 

These might explain why she prefers to keep a low profile...

    Letting you ask these questions, probably.
