The Queen follows the tenets of the Church of England,so yes she does.
"In the Anglican tradition, confession and absolution is usually a component part of corporate worship, particularly at services of the Holy Eucharist. The form involves an exhortation to repentance by the priest, a period of silent prayer during which believers may inwardly confess their sins, a form of general confession said together by all present and the pronouncement of general absolution by the priest, often accompanied by the sign of the cross.

the Confessional is pagan set up by the PAGAN Constantine
our churches don't have fonts with dirty water we don't teach the Trinity
In our church, only god can Forgive not a Man in a dress

The Queen does not - she takes her role as head of the Church of England very seriously. But the reverend Ivan Foster has claimed that the Queen Mother was an avowed Romaniser and the Queen keeps Popish shrines in her castles and palaces.

The Anglican practice of confession was inherited from the Roman Catholic Church.
Anglicans (the Church of England (of which Queen Elizabeth II is a member) can participate in two forms of confession: The General confession and the Private confession.
The priest and congregation perform the General confession during Holy Communion, and the Morning and Evening Prayers, without any mention of the specific sins committed.
Private confessions are usually offered at a specific time during the week, when a priest will be available at the confessional. Anglicans can also make an appointment to see a priest at another time for private confession. The penitent should state how long it has been since her last confession, and then list the sins she has committed. The penitent should ask forgiveness from God and for “advice, penance and absolution,” from the priest. The priest will then offer advice and a “suitable penance.”

She participates in the corporate confession in accordance with Church of England rites and practices when the Eucharist is shared, which does not require speaking directly to the priest.

We in the Anglican Church (Church of England) don't normally have Confession although I suppose if a person feels the need, this can be arranged. It's a Roman Catholic thing - Confession and Absolution
You might find this more often in a High Anglican Churlch.
