The former PM said he asked the Queen just days before the vote whether she could ‘raise an eyebrow’ after a poll predicting he may lose ‘panicked’ him.
The Queen told a well-wisher near her Balmoral estate in Aberdeenshire that she hopes ‘people will think very carefully about the future’ ahead of the vote.
A source told the BBC: ‘It serves no one’s interests for conversations between the PM and the Queen to be made public. ‘It makes it very hard for the relationship to thrive.’
Mr Cameron later acknowledged he had said ‘perhaps a little bit too much’ about his dealings with the monarch, who is meant to remain above the political fray. In an attempt to play down the row, Mr Cameron has insisted he did not ask the Queen to do ‘anything improper’ during the Scottish independence referendum.
Cameron gave us the Referendum ONLY because UKIP was making massive headway into the Tory vote.
