    Question About the Queen

    The Queen is simultaneously the best-known and the most mysterious figure of the age. Can you imagine a man occupying the throne for 55 steadfast years with such a total lack of ego and vanity (least of all last week's birthday Prince)?

    Q1: Is the Queen very mysterious in the eye of Britons?

    Q2: Does Queen lack of ego and vantiy?

    Q3: What does the sentence as below refer to? I have no idea at all.

    Thanks!

    Q1: Is the Queen very mysterious in the eye of Britons? She has always kept her public persona and life separate from her personal one.

    Q2: Does the Queen lack ego and vantiy? There is no evidence that she is or was vain; her public behaviour has always been without egoistic traits.

    Q3: What does the sentence as below refer to? I have no idea at all.

    least of all last week's birthday Prince A rude comment about Prince Charles (who had his 60th birthday last week) imputing that he would not have done such a good job as his mother has.

    Thanks!
