According to former royal chef Darren McGrady, who worked with the royal family for more than a decade, the queen is very smiley and loves to laugh.

Darren claims Olivia Coleman's portrayal of the queen in The Crown was not entirely accurate, insisting the actress does not smile enough throughout the series.

However, he confirmed that the queen is obsessed with poached salmon - just as the Netflix show suggests.
