Viewers tickled as the Queen comments on Trump in Attenborough documentary
The film looked at a project to create a network of protected Commonwealth forests around the globe.
Television viewers were enchanted as the Queen made a joke about Donald Trump to Sir David Attenborough in their new documentary.
The pair teamed up for ITV programme The Queen’s Green Planet, which examines the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy, a project to create a network of protected forests around the globe.
In one scene, their conversation in the gardens of Buckingham Palace is interrupted by the sound of a helicopter flying overhead, and the Queen suggests it “sounds like President Trump, or President Obama”.
The remark went down a storm on social media, with many viewers posting crying with laughter emojis.
“I’m living for the Queen’s sassy comment about Trump,” said one person on Twitter, while another posted: “YASSSS QUEEN !!!”
