Queen's epic response to Omid's Djalili joke about missing State opening of Parliament
Queen's response to a swipe made by comedian Omid Dijalli, 56, during the Jubilee celebrations has left viewers in stiches.ITV's The Queen's Platinum Jubilee Celebration aired on Sunday (May 15) and was the first major event of the Monarch's Platinum Jubilee.Phillip Schofield, 60, and Julie Etchingham, 52, hosted the event and saw a host of celebrities come together to mark the Monarch's 70 years on the throne.As the proceedings came to an end, funny man Omid couldn't resist a cheeky joke about the Queen, 96, for missing the State Opening Of Parliament but instead for attending the Jubilee event at the Windsor castle.Omid first thanked the audience and said: "Thank you to the Great British public who have shown up tonight, in the back there, wearing comfortable shoes and light rain-wear."He then hilariously looked at the Queen and said: "Your Royal Highness, on behalf of everyone here, we would like to thank you, very humbly, for picking us over the State Opening of Parliament."You did the right thing and I won £5 in a bet with my local kebab shop owner in Ipswich."To which Her Royal Highness simply smiled and gave a wave of acknowledgement to the crowd while recognising the humorous dig.
