The Queen's Maid

Here is an article about what it is like to serve Queen Elizabeth II.
Last week - after seeking permission from the Queen and Sir Alan Reid, Keeper of the Privy Purse, whom she looks upon as a mentor - Miss Kelly spoke for the first time about her role and her unwavering affection for her boss.

"I love the Queen and everything about her," she says. "I adore her - but then, so does everyone else. She is not 'my' Queen, she is everyone's and so I have to share her. Once she has chosen something to wear, I just want her to look good in it. I love seeing the faces of the public when they meet the Queen, and when she gives them that special smile. It makes me feel so proud of her.

Of course the article doesn't fail to mention she is a ROMAN Catholic.
Since it's mention is not expounded on later in the article I wonder aloud at the meaning of it's inclusion. Will there be an upinarms revolt at Buckingham when the English people find out?
