The Queen has been hailed as ‘the queen of dancing’ in Leicester – ‘fitness runs through the whole royal family’


The Queen is celebrating her platinum jubilee this year and the people of Leicester are putting on a show based on high physical activity in her honour. The show is called Dance for the Queen, which takes place in Jubilee Square in Leicester on June 1, in honor of the Platinum Jubilee. Rosemary Conley CBE helped put on the show and spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk about her experiences with Prince Charles and the Royal Family’s good example of fitness.

She said: “The Royal Family level riding they do is so impressive, and I think the fact that the Queen is still riding is amazing.

“It’s pretty amazing that she’s been riding all her life and has two family members who have been to the Olympics.

“Three-day eventing is incredibly difficult,” referring to the Olympic experiences of Princess Anne and her daughter Zara Tindall.

In 2004 Rosemary received a CBE from the Queen.

She said: “Prince Charles presented me with my CBE ‘for services to the fitness and food industries’.

“As we were chatting, I said to him, ‘If everyone was active like you are, we wouldn’t have an obesity crisis in this country. We had a whole discussion about it. »

Rosemary developed the excellent examples of the royal family to stay fit and healthy.

She said: “They are very fit and active. I was amazed that during the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations, she walked down all those steps of St. Paul’s Cathedral without clinging to anything and then later came down from her car without any help! I will never forget how amazed I was at his strength and sense of balance to be able to do this at such a great age!

“We need to stop this awful habit of eating snacks between meals and high fat snacks, whether it’s cakes, cookies, crisps or savory bites. They are the ones causing the crisis in the stomach. obesity rather than the meals themselves.

“Of course the other problem with causing obesity is people are basically sending too much takeout, there’s a trend towards that and I think one of the good things that’s come out of the pandemic is that people couldn’t go out and they actually had to cook at home.

“Not only did they find that they weren’t spending so much money, but they actually enjoyed it and found that they could eat healthy by doing it themselves and it didn’t have to cost a lot .

“Exercise is good for our brain, it’s good for our mental health and also eat whole foods like whole grain bread, vegetables, high fiber cereals, basmati rice, pasta and fruit in moderation ( because people sometimes eat fruit and we shouldn’t do that either.) But having lots of vegetables is so good for our gut and if we have a healthy gut, we will have better mental health.

Rosemary’s autobiography as a food and fitness expert, “Through Thick and Thin”, will be released on August 18 this year and you can pre-order a copy here.
