Queen Not Amused During Chinese Visit To Britain

Caught making uncharacteristic, un-Royal remarks

The Queen has been caught on camera making not-so-royal remarks about Chinese officials. She was filmed Tuesday, during a garden party at Buckingham Palace, saying the officials were very rude to the British Ambassador when China’s president visited Britain last year. In her role as monarch, the Queen does not make politically or diplomatically sensitive comments in public. And they came on the same day British Prime Minister David Cameron was filmed making undiplomatic remarks about Nigeria and Afghanistan being corrupt countries. His comments were especially awkward since he is hosting both countries’ leaders at an anti-corruption conference on Thursday.
