Barbara Walters thought Queen Elizabeth II’s skit with Daniel Craig to open the Olympics Friday may have been “funny” — but she thinks her highness could desperately use some tips on how to smile.
“The View” host said on the show this morning that the Queen’s got a “sour face,” dresses like she’s in the 19th century and could use a “pinch on the tushie” from Prince Philip.
While Walters admitted the Queen’s high-flying sketch with Craig as James Bond was “funny,” she added that her highness “does not know how to smile” and has a “sour face.”
“Let me tell you my thing with the Queen,” Walters quipped. “I did agree that the whole thing with Daniel Craig was funny… [but] this is a woman who does not know how to smile.”
Walters asked, “Now, would it have killed this woman, this queen, to go…” followed by a fake smirk. “It’s such a sour face.”
Walters further questioned the Queen’s style. “She is 86, but she dresses like something out of the 19th century,” Walters said. “The pink dress with the pink plume, but then the black gloves and the black bag — what does the Queen keep in that bag anyway? She never changes.”
But despite all the ribbing this morning, Walters told us, “in spite of everything, the Queen is a great example to everyone,” and praised her. (talk about damage control)
When she was asked in April who her dream interviews would be, Walters replied, “There’s certain people who’ve never done interviews: the Queen of England. His Holiness, the Pope. I don’t expect to do either. But it’s a nice wish list.” (haha yeah good luck with that)
STFU Barbara!!!! Seriously I want to send her every damn photo of the Queen smiling! I hate “The View” with a passion. Absolute trash imao.
