Just when we didn’t think she could get any more amazing, Queen Elizabeth II called gay marriage in England “wonderful.”
Or at least according to comedian/newlywed Stephen Fry.
During an interview over the weekend, Fry explained how the 88-year-old monarch expressed her approval of gay marriage in July 2013 when signing the Marriage Act, which granted same-sex couples the right to legally marry in England.
“It was only last summer that Her Majesty The Queen gave the Royal Assent,” he told The Jonathan Ross Show.
The Queen must remain politically neutral and has never spoken publicly about gay marriage, but according to sources who Fry describes as “well-founded,” her royal majesty is all for marriage equality.
“When the Queen signed the Royal Assent for the equal marriages act, allowing gay people to marry for the first time, she put it down and said ‘Well, who’d have thought 62 years ago when I came to the throne, I’d be signing something like this? Isn’t it wonderful?'”
