A spiritual mentor at the London branch of the Kabbalah Center claimed that members of Britain’s royal family are secretly following the teachings of Jewish mysticism, the UK’s Daily Mail reported on Tuesday.

“There’s a host of people who sign confidentiality agreements, whether it is royal family members, some celebs, some business people,” said Marcus Weston, a former investment banker who became a Kabbalah teacher.

When asked if the Queen enjoys learning about Kabbalah, he replied, “I could not answer that,” adding, “but she is wonderful.”

The influence of Kabbalah has been growing in London and more than 1,000 students take spiritual classes each week at the city’s branch of the center, the Daily Mail reported. Weston said when he first got interested in the group, he would often be the only one in his Kabbalah class.

    It’s the secrecy that counts more than the “Kabbalah”. But a secret revealed is not a secret anymore and it is no secret that Kabbalah is not Judaism. So don’t worry, Her Majesty the Queen is not about to convert!
