Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II share a special "bond"
No other leader has had such a connection with the monarch, who considers Mrs May her favourite PM.
The pair frequently chat about issues not relating to politics, and even discuss subjects the Queen seldom talks about.
And Her Majesty is so trusting in Mrs May that she informed her of husband Philip’s decisions to retire long before the official announcement was made.
Theresa may and the Queen apparently enjoy a good chat
The revelations come from a former butler, who worked for the Queen for more than a decade and spilled the royal secrets in an interview with the Daily Star.
He said: “The Queen is so good at dealing with people, doesn’t matter which prime minister, no matter who they are.
“But with Tony Blair you could tell there wasn’t a bond, and same with Gordon Brown and even David Cameron – even though he is a Conservative.

“However with Theresa May – and a lot of people say this – you can really see that bond.
“The last time that happened was when Margaret Thatcher was prime minister, and they had a big falling out that was well documented.
“That bond is there (between herself and May), they get on really well.”
The royal butler claims the Queen even discusses her grandchildren
He went on to explain the pair would often enjoy long chats aside from politics, discussing the “countryside, church and Balmoral Castle (where the Queen lives).”
The butler added: “They even talk about family, such as the Queen’s grandchildren.
“For the queen to speak bout family on that scale… she would never do that with a Prime Minister.”
And the Queen trusts Mrs May so much, she told the PM long in advance about Prince Philip’s decision to stand down from formal events – something she likely would not have should with predecessor David Cameron until minutes before the announcement.
