“Even if you expect it, and obviously we’ve thought about it, you really think, ‘She’s iconic – she’s never going to go away. She will always be there for us. ” — She’s been a part of my whole life. I mean, I can’t remember not being there when she was there.

Collins also recalled how the Queen was present when she was made a lady and told host Piers Morgan that she was such a gracious person at the time.

“She said, ‘Oh, I’m so happy for you. You deserve it. You’ve been playing for a long time now. It was always a pleasure to be with her,” Collins recalled.

Collins later added that former President Donald Trump said one of the highlights of his presidency was meeting the Queen at Windsor Castle and having dinner with her.

Collins said Queen Elizabeth isn’t afraid to show a more laid-back side, like footage of her smiling in conversation with Trump, or the famous prologue from the London Olympics ceremony where she and the actor from the then-007 Daniel Craig appeared to jump out of a helicopter. to start the games.

Collins said Elizabeth’s son, the current King Charles III, would also make a great monarch.

“He has a wonderful voice, a really beautiful voice. I think he cares a lot about the community, the country, every country. I mean, he has so many great causes,” Collins said.

“I thought it was very interesting when he said he was going to have to give up a lot of his charity work. I don’t know who he’s going to pass it on to, but of course I guess it’s very difficult to be a prince and then a king.”
