He explained that the Queen had wanted Viscount Linley, who is the son of Princess Margaret, the Queen’s sister to check on his sister, Lady Sarah Armstrong-Jones, who was down with a sickness and resting in her room.

The young Viscount Linley refused his aunt’s orders, and she proceeded to slap him lightly on the face, but all the while, reminding him of who she was.

Sir John writes that as the Queen struck her nephew’s face lightly, she said;

“Don’t (slap) argue (slap) with (slap) me (slap), I (slap) am (slap) THE QUEEN.”

Elton John went on to claim that the Queen noticed that he had seen all that just transpired and winked at him before going away.

The autobiography of the musical legend will be released on October 15 and comes after he has previously resisted the idea of writing a book about himself.

Sir John explained just why he changed his mind in a booklet that accompanied the recently released DVD of “Rocketman,” a film about his lifestyle.

In the pamphlet, he narrated the experiences that led him to decide to write an autobiography finally. He also explained that he wrote the memoir (his book) to document his ridiculous lifestyle.

The book is sure to make for an interesting read, and many will be waiting eagerly for the day of its release.
