WATCH: Queen Elizabeth caught on camera bad-mouthing Chinese officials at Buckingham Palace
Let’s just say she didn’t call them a great bunch of lads.
Queen Elizabeth has been caught calling Chinese officials “very rude” by her own cameraman in an incident that won’t do much to help relations between China and the UK.
Queen Elizabeth was heard to make the remarks at a recent garden party for her 90th birthday while in conversation with Metropolitan Police Commander Lucy D'Orsi, who was in charge of security during the visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife last October.

The footage was released to broadcasters and appeared online overnight.
It comes in the wake of footage showing Prime Minister David Cameron referring to Nigeria and Afghanistan as “fantastically corrupt countries" in conversation with The Queen ahead of the international anti-corruption summit this week.
