"A Year With Stuffy"

The BBC is apologizing for a promotional trailer they aired yesterday from the upcoming documentary "A Year With the Queen."

Famous photographer Annie Leibovitz asked Queen Elizabeth II to remove her crown during an official portrait session.

During the shoot, Leibovitz asked the Queen to wear Order of the Garter robes and a diamond tiara, but changed her mind and asked, "I think it will look better without the crown. Less dressy. The garment robe is so ... extraordinary."

The Queen snapped, "Less dressy? What do you think this is?" She then left the room, reportedly grumbling, "I'm not changing anything. I've had enough of dressing like this, thank you very much." Eyeroll.

Four official portraits of the Queen were eventually released by Leibovitz.
