Queen Elizabeth II penned "wickedly funny" notes from her corgis to a Jack Russell belonging to a senior member of the Royal household.

Broadcaster Alexander Armstrong said he came across the hand-written notes while in the home of the late Sir Blair Stewart Wilson, the Queen’s former equerry.

The letters, described as a perfect example of Her Majesty’s "wicked sense of humour" were "hilarious" Mr Armstrong told ITV’s The Queen and her Cousins.

According to Mr Armstrong, Mr Wilson and the monarch had a regular correspondence which would be addressed from the Royal corgis to Mr Wilson’s family Jack Russell.

Mr Armstrong claims the letters, which he stumbled on by chance during a visit to the family’s home, were "wickedly funny" and left him "howling with laughter".

The broadcaster added that the series of letters were put up in the bathroom of Mr Wilson’s home for all guests to see.

Speaking on the documentary, which will air on ITV to mark the Queen’s 95th birthday, Mr Armstrong said: "He would write these letters from their Jack Russell to the corgis and the Queen would write these letters back.
