Queen Elizabeth reportedly approved a book written by her trusted stylist which will detail how she coped with Prince Philip's death as well as the coronavirus pandemic.

Angela Kelly who spent almost 30 years as Queen Elizabeth’s stylist and advisor has revised her book ahead of Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations. She will share how the Queen handled the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral.

In a new edition of "The Other Side Of The Coin: The Queen, The Dresser And The Wardrobe," which has been approved by the Queen, Kelly will detail her personal view of how the Queen faced the troubles of the pandemic and the death of her husband. "It tells the story of the royal bubble as well as the lengths Angela and the royal household went to, to ensure the safety of the monarch," claimed by Katya Shipster, publishing director of Harper Non-Fiction.

Kelly, a Roman Catholic crane driver's daughter from Liverpool, also extends her influence to the younger royals as Prince George is christened in a lengthy robe made by her, who learned sewing from her mother and aunt. She is known to have a very close relationship with the Queen, she has written two books with the Queen's approval. Kelly lives in a house located on the grounds of Windsor Castle wherein the Queen has been seen "nipping in for tea." Kelly once shared in an interview, "We are two typical women. We discuss clothes, make-up, jewelry."

The Queen has given Kelly approval to publish the "The Other Side Of The Coin: The Queen, The Dresser And The Wardrobe" that was first published in 2019. This revised edition, which will be released ahead of the Platinum Jubilee, reportedly includes a new chapter that also covers Prince Philip's funeral, the first public engagements post-lockdown and the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June.

The book will be published on May 12 by HarperCollins, revealing some of the behind-the-scenes tricks used for the monarch's attire. Kelly was said to sew in extra layers of lining to cushion the impact of beading and crystals on the Queen's back when events require glamorous gowns. There are also tiny weights put into day-wear hemlines in case of windy weather and fabrics that crumple or could potentially develop messy loose strands. Kelly was also revealed to wear Queen’s handmade new shoes to ensure they are comfortable when first used, as they both have the same size feet.
