Conspiracy theorists, get out your pen and crazy-sketch-filled notepad. The Queen is an Arsenal supporter, just like her mum – according to The Sun (and the various caveats that statement brings),
‘It seems the Queen follows football and she told us she was an Arsenal fan,’ Fabregas is quoted as saying. ‘She appeared to definitely know who I was and we exchanged a few special words.’
An unnamed senior royal source also confirms in the article, which is accompanied by a mocked up photograph of the Queen wearing a red Arsenal shirt, that she supports the club.
‘Her Majesty has been fond of Arsenal for over 50 years,’ the source said. ‘Her late mother was a self-confessed Gooner, due largely to her admiration of their former player Denis Compton.’
Always good to see interest in the Premiership from the highest level. Maybe if Kroenke decides not to buy the club, the Windsors will be next up?
But probably not, because that’d be ridiculous.
