“She was a pretty woman, a bit like a Hollywood movie star,” McCartney recalls. “I think part of the secret to her popularity, at least for my generation, was that she was quite a babe… In our boyish ways, we liked her quite a bit.”
The iconic Beatles guitarist and singer-songwriter also recalls playing a song with the band for the queen. Did she like it? He couldn’t tell!
He says that they couldn’t quite figure out what she thought of it, based on her reaction. “She didn’t have much to say about it. Yeah, I don’t know how to say it, but she just didn’t say much.”

In 1965 the Beatles were honored by the Queen at Buckingham Palace and much more recently he had a private audience with her. In 1997 she knighted McCartney, giving him the title Sir.
These days the queen has been ailing and the populace is quite concerned. It emerged that last week she was hospitalized overnight and when word leaked the palace confirmed it, albeit after the fact.
This lapse was seen by many royal watches as a great affront. On the one hand the queen is a living symbol of the country, but on the other she has a right to medical privacy, so it was a tricky call.
