"Sounds Like Trump", Jokes Queen Elizabeth As Helicopter Hovers Overhead

WHAT! Queen Elizabeth is a descendant of Prophet Muhammad?

WHAT! Queen Elizabeth is a descendant of Prophet Muhammad?

The documentary, airing in the U.K. April. 16, centers on the environmental project The Queen's Canopy, which hopes to unite every country in the Commonwealth via its preservation efforts.

A March article in Moroccan newspaper Al-Ousboue restates claims, which first surfaced in 1986 and were made by Harold B Brooks-Baker, publishing director of Burke's Peerage Partnership, that Queen Elizabeth II is a 43rd direct descendant of the Prophet via Muhammad's daughter Fatimah.

"Might easily be, yes", the queen says. The Queen jokes with British broadcaster Sir David Attenborough about not being alive in 50 years, a tree in the Buckingham Palace garden looking like it's been "sat on" - oh - and about Trump and former President Obama. The kids ask me why all this is so important for the Queen.

In one clip from ITV's "The Queen's Green Planet", when helicopters disrupt the tranquil environment around them, she frustratingly wonders aloud to Attenborough, "Why do they always go round and round when you want to talk?"

Actor-filmmaker Angelina Jolie has praised Queen Elizabeth II as a "really lovely lady" who cares about the future. Donald Trump, on the other hand, has not yet met with Queen Elizabeth, despite reports of a potential invitation being offered to the president.

Then the she exclaims, "It sounds like President Trump!".

The two nonagenarians appear relaxed together, with little of the formality and rigid deference often seen in people addressing the monarch. According to the British royal family's official website, as head of state, the queen "has to remain strictly neutral with respect to political matters, unable to vote or stand for election".

The queen, who routinely receives gifts from visitors from every corner of the planet, comments that the garden has benefitted from many gifts of roses and other plants.

'What it comes down to is you say to the kids, "You know really, you don't know her, you can't understand all that it means to be a queen and all that". "Of course they've said 'Oh well, let's give her a plant. or a tree or something.' Which is very nice to have".
