Queen developed sweet crush on BBC weathermen in her final days

The Queen took a liking to BBC weatherman Tomasz Schafernaker in her last days at Balmoral.

Her Majesty passed away earlier this month at the age of 96 in Scotland, and while the Queen was pictured shaking new prime minster Liz Truss's hand a couple of days before her death, it's been said that her final days also included watching the BBC weatherman.

A source told the Daily Mail: "It was like a bit of a crush. She always wanted to watch the forecasts he was on.

"She was amused hearing the cadences when his name was read out but she loved watching him too."


Certainly flattered that the Queen loved watching him on TV, Tomasz wrote on Twitter: "Feel so humbled to be mentioned like this…truly heartwarming."

His friends and followers were quick to reply to his tweet, with one fan responding: "I think she must have liked the fact you can be a little rebellious and naughty at times. She seemed to like people with a bit of personality. You aren’t boring and we all like that in you."

43 year old Tomasz was voted Britain's favourite weatherman in the past, but he has endured some dramatic moments in his career, the first being when he refused to cut his fair.

The second was when he was caught putting the middle finger up at then-BBC host Simon McCoy while on air in 2010, resulting in him being removed from TV for a short while.

Sources have told The Sun that the Queen was in great spirits during her final days and had meals with friends and family.

She was described as in "sparkling form” and “buoyant”.

Announcing the news of her death, Buckingham Palace said in a statement : "The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow."

Her Majesty's funeral took place at Westminster Abbey on Monday 19 September.

Many of the 2000 guests included prime minsters, presidents and royals.

She was then laid to rest beside her husband Prince Philip at St George's Chapel in Windsor.

Speaking in the House of Commons after the Queen's death, prime minster Liz Truss said: "Flags have been lowered to half-mast. Tributes have been sent from every continent around the world.

"On the death of her father King George VI, Winston Churchill said the news had 'stilled the clatter and traffic of twentieth-century life in many lands'. Now, 70 years later, in the tumult of the 21st Century, life has paused again.

"Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was one of the greatest leaders the world has ever known. She was the rock on which modern Britain was built."
