Queen Elizabeth burst into giggles when she was asked to re-record her 2017 Christmas message which was interrupted by a chirping bird
New ITV documentary reveals that the Queen had to re-record last year's Christmas message because of a chirping bird in the background
Even though Queen Elizabeth II has been dubbed the "one-take wonder" by broadcasters due to the fact that she always gets things right in the first shot, a documentary reveals that the Queen had to re-record last year's Christmas message.
A new ITV documentary looks at the British queen's role as head of the Commonwealth reveals that Elizabeth had to re-record the message because a bird in the Buckingham Palace garden started chirping loudly.
In 'Queen of the World' -- which airs Tuesday -- she is seen responding to someone from the production team who had asked her to "redo it from the top". "From the top of the second page?" she asks. "From the very start," the person replies to which she says, "You want the whole thing again?" "If possible," comes the reply, to which she chuckles.
In another part of the documentary, Prince Charles pays tribute to his mother for taking on the "enormous task" of becoming the Queen at the young age of 25-years-old.
He shared, "To have met that challenge the way she did is truly remarkable. It appeared effortless, but it jolly well isn’t, of course".
Prince Harry is also seen in the documentary meeting a group of young people from the Caribbean who had been invited to the Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle to work and train. They also joked that they would have parties every night to which Prince Harry responds, "Oh dear".
Meghan Markle too features in the documentary and is shown expressing her excitement about their first joint royal tour in October as Duke and Duchess of Sussex. They will be visiting Commonwealth countries Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga and New Zealand.
"You know, it's such an exciting time for us, especially with Harry's role as youth ambassador for the Commonwealth and the travel we intend to do to do work specifically in all those different territories, which is why it was so important to have some sort of example of that present with us on the day," she says. "Fifty-three countries as well, my goodness, it will keep us busy."
The documentary will air on ITV at 9:15 pm on Tuesday.
