The Queen Leaves David Attenborough In Stitches With Joke About Donald Trump
Somebody better order Donald Trump an Uber, because the Queen just absolutely MURKED him.
Believe it or not, our monarch, famous for abiding the ‘never complain, never explain’ rule her whole life, has bags of banter hidden behind that twee exterior.
In a new ITV documentary entitled The Queen’s Green Planet, the 91-year-old can be seen kicking back with TV veteran David Attenborough when she takes a moment to chide the President of the United States, as well as his predecessor Barack Obama.
Chewing the fat with Sir Attz through the gardens of Buckingham Palace, Queen Liz says ‘Sounds like President Trump, or President Obama’ when the serene quiet is interrupted by the sound of an aircraft.
Due to a series of unfortunate life choices, I do not personally know our beloved head of state, so I’m not entirely sure what she means. But I suppose aircrafts are like nails on a chalkboard inside royal lugholes?
Either way, it’s a certified zinger that makes me proud to be British. Will be pouring one out for her this weekend. A drink. That’s not an innuendo. Please give me a knighthood.
The documentary, celebrating a Commonwealth environmental project, will also feature A-lister Angelina Jolie and her six children. Due to air next Monday, Jolie can be seen praising the Queen for supporting the project, Metro reports.
Watch the clip here:
She describes the monarch as a ‘really lovely lady who really cares about people around the world, and she really cares about the future, and she wants your grandkids and her grandkids to be able to be running around, enjoying nature and other cultures…’

You know when you sit up at night in a tent with your kids and they say, ‘Why does the Queen of England care about planting trees in Africa?’ And to be able to explain that to them is a really nice way of being able to explain kind of the world at large and what should matter and why.
In a more poignant moment of the show, the Queen lauds the pros of the network of safeguarded Commonwealth forests.
She tells Sir David:
I mean they’re all kinds of different (trees), different places that they’re growing in and all sorts of, different types of forest.
So, if all countries continue to plant, it might change the climate again.
Hello! reports, speaking about the nerves he had leading up to the interview, Attenborough told the Radio Times:
Yes, there was a certain amount of apprehension because all sorts of things could have gone wrong.
There were problems in that where the palace is, geographically, there are always police sirens and ambulance sirens that make filming difficult. But she took it all in her stride. It was a privilege of course, a very nice occasion – and she was very gracious.
She is very un-solemn, very good at putting people at their ease.
You can catch The Queen’s Green Planet on ITV at 9pm on Monday 16 April.
