The Queen, 94, became the longest-reigning British Monarch in 2015 as she surpassed the reign of her great-great-grandmother Victoria. After 65 years on the throne, royal expert Robert Jobson has said the monarch is well-respected by world leaders. He noted that US President Donald Trump appeared to respect her more than he would with other heads of state.

Speaking to True Royalty TV, Mr Jobson said: “She has the respect of everyone around the world.

“I think when you see her with world leaders, even when we saw her with Donald Trump.

“There was a degree of respect there from Mr Trump that you would not have necessarily seen with him and other heads of state.”

It comes as the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh have returned to Windsor Castle together, ready for England’s second national lockdown.

Buckingham Palace said the royal couple travelled to Berkshire from the Sandringham estate on Monday – three days before the month-long restrictions come into force.

The monarch had spent the weekend visiting the 99-year-old duke in Norfolk.

Philip’s decision to accompany the Queen to Windsor and return to HMS Bubble – the nickname for their reduced household of staff – came after the Government’s announcement on Saturday of the new lockdown in England in a bid to reverse the spread of coronavirus.

The Queen and Philip are just over a fortnight away from marking their 73rd wedding anniversary on November 20.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said the duke’s move to Windsor had been planned for a while.

Royal author Penny Junor said: “I just think it’s very nice if they are together in the same residence and same part of the world.

“It’s company for one another. They’re a marvellous old couple.”

Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty magazine, said the move meant the royal tradition of a Christmas at Sandringham this year was in doubt.

“Clearly it indicates there isn’t going to be any sort of Christmas at Sandringham,” the royal commentator said.

Buckingham Palace declined to comment on any future plans for the festive season.

Philip has been staying at his Wood Farm cottage on the Sandringham estate for the past few weeks since the Queen returned to Windsor at the start of October.

He has spent much of his retirement so far in the sanctuary after stepping down from public duties in 2017 after decades of service.
