The Queen has voiced her opinion that the UK’s current politicians do not have the “ability to govern”, a newspaper has revealed.

The monarch, who usually keeps her political views to herself, has reportedly revealed her disappointment that politicians have not been able to reunite the country following the 2016 referendum.

This revelation comes as Remainer MPs have said they will demand the Queen intervenes if Boris Johnson does not resign after a no confidence vote in a bid to block a No Deal Brexit.

According to The Sunday Times, a source said: “I think she’s really dismayed. I’ve heard her talking about her disappointment in the current political class and its inability to govern correctly.”

The Queen allegedly made the comments at a private event following David Cameron’s resignation after the EU referendum.

Since 2016, the royal insiders claim the Queen’s frustration has grown.

The Queen said: “She expressed her exasperation and frustration about the quality of our political leadership, and that frustration will only have grown”, according to the newspaper.

The shadow Home Secretary John McDonnell has said: “I don’t want to drag the Queen into this but I would be sending Jeremy Corbyn in a cab to Buckingham Palace to say we’re taking over.”

The former attorney general, Dominic Grieve, has said that he would expect the Queen to tell Mr Johnson to resign if he ignores a vote in the House of Commons.

Traditionally the royals are not allowed to show any political opinions, but the comments suggest that the Queen has had enough.

The Queen must remain “strictly neutral” in relation to political matters and is “unable to vote or stand for election”.

However, she does have the ability to overrule ministerial advice “in a grave constitutional crisis”.

Royal historian Robert Lacey told Politico: "The Queen has a horror of being dragged into politics, partly because it is in her very nature to be neutral and retiring, and also because she deeply believes that the constitutional monarchy should do all it can to remain above the fray."

Mr Johnson has vowed that the UK will leave the EU by the end of October with or without a deal.
