Following the news that the Queen had died on Thursday, like many, Sarah Beeny rushed to social media to pay tribute to the late monarch. The 96-year-old passed surrounded by her loved ones at Balmoral after being under medical supervision.
Taking to Twitter, the presenter wrote: “RIP HRH Queen Elizabeth II thank you for your decades of dedication – personally I have every confidence our monarchy is very safe hands – God Save the King x.”
Many of Sarah’s 152,000 followers joined her in remembering the late monarch, however one was offended by the use of HRH (Her Royal Highness).
Twitter user Myro replied, writing: “IGNORANT FOOLS, she’s HM not HRH, HRH is for lesser royals. Such an insult.”
This morning, Sarah, 50, replied: “Umm I now realise this!! Sadly you can’t edit Twitter or I’d fix it!
