Did Michael Gove leak the claim that the Queen backs Brexit?

Michael Gove is at the centre of speculation suggesting he may be the source of the claims that the Queen backed Brexit in a row with former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.

The former education secretary is a close friend of Rupert Murdoch, owner of the Sun newspaper.

Gove is also going to head the Vote Leave campaign as chairman of its campaigning committee.

Gove's spokesman refutes the claims that he is the source of the story.
