Speaking to ABC News in the US, he said the Queen’s faith has been a constant throughout her life.

“When I spoke to her about her faith, she said she had no regrets at all,” revealed Greenshields.

“She had power, but she used it in a way that benefited others by serving her country and doing so well.”

Greenshields added that there were no obvious signs the Queen had just days to live.

“It just seemed amazing that the woman who was so vital, so alive and so engaging was suddenly dead and gone from us,” he said.

“She was 96 and you could see her fragility.

“But as soon as she started speaking, a whole different kind of person emerged.

“Someone whose memory was exceptional, someone who knew everything about you, so she had done her homework.

“I was in the tower rooms and she said, ‘Your queen is sending you to the tower!’

“And she just smiled at me when she said that.

“She made sure I got it, that I got the joke instead of taking it too seriously.”

Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson also met with the Queen just two days before her death.

He traveled to Scotland to officially hand in his retirement when Liz Truss took over the top job.

In an interview with the BBC, Johnson said he was shocked by her rapid demise, considering how “bright” she had looked two days earlier.

“The last audience I had with her — one of the reasons it was so shocking to hear of her death on the 8th — was because she was absolutely there for that audience,” he noted.

“Just two days before she died.

“She was actively focusing on geopolitics, on British politics and citing statesmen from the 1950s, which was quite extraordinary.

“She seemed very bright, very focused.”

Queen Elizabeth spent her final days with family, reading The Racing Post and watching TV, The Sun reported.

Greenshields told The Sun the Queen had spoken to him movingly about her future husband Prince Philip and was “in good spirits”.

“In conversation with her, she led me to the window and looked out over her gardens with great pride and affection,” he said.

“And I think that’s where she would have wanted to spend her final days, and I think the family is comforted by that.”
