U.K. Queen dragged into Brexit debate?

|By:, SA News Editor

According to The Sun, the Queen has been "revealed" to be a backer of a campaign to leave the EU, and supposedly told former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg that the union was "heading in the wrong direction".

Buckingham Palace rejects the story, insisting that the Queen is "politically neutral."

Whether fact or fiction, the comments could be a boost to the "leave" campaign which has already attracted a number of high-profile politicians.
