The Queen laughs as she’s asked to re-record her speech (ITV)

The Queen was asked to re-record her Christmas speech because of a bird chirping outside Buckingham Palace.

In footage captured by ITV’s new documentary Queen of the World, the Monarch, 92, is asked by a crew member, if she can start again from the top, after the recording is interrupted by the noise.

She asks: “From the top of the second page?”

He replies: “From the very start.”

Looking amused, she says: “You want the whole thing again?” before letting out a small laugh.

The documentary filmed the royal family over a year and will offer a behind-the-scenes look into their lives and the work they do.

The focus of the two-part series will be on the Queen, her role as an important figure on the global stage, and how she is helping younger members of the royal family connect with the Commonwealth.

The Duke of Sussex also reveals how he even ‘panics’ when he bumps into the Queen at Buckingham Palace, as he meets a team of enterprising hospitality professionals from the Caribbean. 

The film also captures the Duchess of Sussex as she is reunited with her Givenchy wedding dress for the first time since her big day.

Queen Of The World starts on 25 September, 9pm, ITV
