Angela Kelly, who worked for three decades as Queen Elizabeth II's personal assistant and senior dresser, is on the brink of a significant life shift, moving from her Windsor residence and launching into an era of new experiences. Kelly, 65, known for her adept fashion design and dressmaking skills, revealed her imminent departure via a series of ambiguous Instagram posts that left many followers in suspense.
With the passing of Queen Elizabeth II in September 2022, Kelly's circumstances became less certain. As the Mirror reports, the new King Charles III requested that Kelly vacate her Windsor abode. However, he provided a replacement residence in Yorkshire, placing Kelly closer to her loved ones.
Emphasizing her excitement to establish her own space, Kelly shared on Instagram: "I am moving at last to my new home which I will be able to call My Home at last." Her new abode lies in the Peak District, which is "not too far away" from her relatives, and she expressed her eagerness for the upcoming adventures.
Nonetheless, as images of Kelly packing her possessions began to circulate, she released a sequence of enigmatic Instagram stories, one of which stated, "No matter how kind and generous you are, you'll never satisfy an ungrateful person. Learning how to remain calm when you're disrespected is a superpower." In another post, she shared lyrics from the song "Broken Angel," leaving many to ponder the hidden implications behind these cryptic messages.
According to sources, Kelly's relocation was connected to King Charles III's mandate that she refrain from divulging more royal anecdotes. Despite having previously published two books detailing her experiences as a royal aide-with Queen Elizabeth's approval-King Charles III was reportedly uncomfortable with the extent of personal information disclosed about his late mother in Kelly's book, "The Other Side Of The Coin: The Queen, The Dresser And The Wardrobe."
An anonymous source asserted that the King's apprehensions were rooted in safeguarding the prestige of the Queen and the Crown. The source added that following his mother's death, King Charles III is "more determined to defend her reputation and her legacy."
Despite the ongoing intrigue surrounding Kelly's departure, it is well-known that she had a close relationship with Queen Elizabeth II. In a 2007 interview, Kelly portrayed their bond as being akin to "two typical women" conversing about apparel, cosmetics, and jewelry.
However, this close association was not warmly welcomed by all, with Prince Harry, in his memoir "Spare," criticizing Kelly's actions during Meghan Markle's tiara fitting for their wedding. According to Prince Harry, Kelly, who he branded as "a troublemaker," made the process more challenging than necessary.
