Angela Kelly, the Queen’s assistant and dresser, said she has a close relationship with the Queen. Like typical women, they discussed clothing and jewelry. The Queen had an excellent sense of humor and mimicked everyone, including Angela. The Queen liked her and trusted Angela as she was the one making decisions, but the final decision always rested with the Queen.
