We don't often hear the Queen speaking publicly, much less cracking jokes, but in a new documentary called The Queen's Green Planet, the British monarch shows off her deadpan humor.

In between sharing sweet anecdotes about her great-grandchildren knocking Christmas ornaments off the tree and a discussion about climate change, the Queen managed to get in a funny quip about American presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump.

"Why do they always go round and round when you want to talk?" she says, referencing the sound of helicopters above while walking through the private gardens at Buckingham Palace with Sir David Attenborough. "Sounds like President Trump, President Obama."

Watch the clip here:

Presidential helicopters are rumored to have damaged plants on the Buckingham Palace grounds during previous visits, hence her remark.

Obama made several trips to the U.K. over the course of his presidency; Trump's controversial first visit to the U.K. is reportedly planned for later this fall.
