Kate Middleton’s brother in Queen Elizabeth tribute gaffe

Kate Middleton's brother has drawn criticism for making a spelling mistake in his tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II.

James Middleton, 35, took to Instagram with a message of admiration for the monarch but managed to spell her name with an 's' rather than a 'z'.

"Queen Elisabeth II, the epitome of steady grace, resolve and reassurance," he wrote. "Our constant in a world of change. Thank you for a lifetime of service and leadership."
