A regional daily editor has claimed that The Queen reads his newspaper every morning after meeting her when she visited the area.
After the meeting, Nigel took to Twitter to reveal that Her Majesty had told him she reads the EDP “every morning”.
The Queen’s Sandringham residence in Norfolk is just a few miles away from the hospital, which is named after her late mother.
Tweeting about the meeting, Nigel wrote: “Great line from The Queen when I met her at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King’s Lynn a few minutes ago. Her Majesty reads the EDP ‘every morning.'”
Ahead of the arrival of the Royal visitor, he tweeted that it was a “wonderful day” at the hospital.
It was the Queen’s first visit since 2008 to the hospital that she is patron of and she was welcomed by staff and patients.
She visited the new scanning suite before unveiling a plaque and signing a photograph which will be put in the MRI unit.
During her visit, The Queen met hospital executives and those involved in building and operating the scanner, along with local people who had gone to the hospital to see her.
A spokeswoman for Buckingham Palace said she was not able to confirm or deny whether the Queen read the EDP daily.
