The Queen

The Queen is an amazing woman with many talents. Everyone knows that Her Majesty has a knack for photography after receiving her first camera from her father. According to the Daily Mail, she has ‘an effortless knack of capturing her family at their most informal and most relaxed.’

But did you know that during World War II, the Queen did her part in the war effort and became a trained mechanic? Indeed Her Majesty was a part of the Women’s Auxiliary Territorial Service, where, as a young woman, she learned how to drive a truck and change a spark plug.

It is also believed that the Queen is good at imitating accents.

Prince Philip

The late Duke of Edinburgh had an artistic side. During Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers Princess Eugenie revealed that her grandfather had gifted her a beautiful painting of a bouquet of flowers as a wedding gift.

She said:

It's now sitting in my house in London and I'm so proud of it,

Prince Philip developed his artistic skills by drawing maps and later in life he designed Windsor Castle’s rose garden.
