In the days leading up to her death, Queen Elizabeth II was living her life to the fullest and enjoying her days.

The Very Reverend Dr Iain Greenshields, who was the Queen’s guest at Balmoral Castle last weekend, revealed that despite her increasingly poor health Elizabeth was ‘the life and soul of things’.

“It was a fantastic visit,” the cleric told The Times.

“Her memory was absolutely amazing and she was really a lot of fun. I was really shocked to hear that she was seriously ill because she was in great shape over the weekend.”

The Scottish cleric, who is the current Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, had been invited to deliver a sermon at Braemar and Crathie Parish Church, where the Queen would worship while spending time in Scotland.

He also enjoyed lunch and dinner with the monarch last Saturday night, as well as Prince Charles, now king.

“She was the life and soul of things,” Greenshields continued. “She would tell me very personally about her time there as a child. She would talk about her horses from the past, naming them 40 years ago, people’s names and places.
