Queen Elizabeth by Annie Leibovitz: Her Majesty Loses Her Cool!

The Official Portrait of Queen Elizabeth

Photography by:  Annie Leibovitz

From today’s edition of The London Daily Mail:

This is the extraordinary moment the Queen lost her temper and stormed out of a photoshoot, after a celebrity photographer dared ask her to remove her crown.

Less dressy? What do you think this is?”

The astonishing footage is taken from a new BBC documentary entitled A Year With The Queen and captures the moment when Her Majesty lost her cool.

During the program, US celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz sizes up the Queen in her full regalia and ventures: “I think it will look better without the crown, because the garter robe is so…”

Before the photographer can finish saying “extraordinary”, the Queen raises her eyebrows, fixes Leibovitz with an icy stare, and snaps: “Less dressy? What do you think this is?” pointing to what she is wearing.

TV cameras followed the Queen storming off, with an official lifting the large train of her blue velvet cape off the floor as the Queen tells her lady-in-waiting: “I’m not changing anything.  I’ve had enough dressing like this thank you very much.”
