Is anyone surprised that the Queen didn’t approve of gay marriage?

From The Spectator-

Of all the frankly riveting stuff in the Daily Mail’s serial of what it calls ‘The Unknown Queen’ — nicely timed for the Queen’s 90th birthday — is there anything less surprising than the revelation she was/is opposed to gay marriage? Is the head of the Church of England a Christian? Well, it seems so.

‘There is,’ say Richard Kay (a friend of the late Princess Diana) and Geoffrey Levy, ‘one area of social policy where Her Majesty holds more traditional views…same sex marriage.’ Talking about the issue in the home of a close friend around the time the legislation was being passed by Parliament, the Queen is said to have expressed her frustration and unease. ‘It was the “marriage” thing she thought was wrong,’ says the friend, ‘because marriage ought to be sacrosanct between a man and a woman. I said to her couldn’t she do something about it and she replied: “I can’t. I can only advise and warn.”‘
