Lorraine fans brutally mock Paul Burrell as he says Queen watches the show

The Queen apparently "will be watching" Lorraine Kelly's show, according to former Royal servant Paul Burrell.

Paul, who also served as Princess Diana's latter butler before her death, appeared on Lorraine Kelly's ITV breakfast show today to talk all things Prince Philip following the Queen's husband's death on Friday at 99 years old.

But there was one thing Paul said about the Queen in particular which caught viewers' attention.

Paul claimed that her Majesty would be sat watching Lorraine's show, which was being hosted by Good Morning Britain's Ranvir Singh today.

Ranvir asked Paul: "What do you think will be happening today and in the days to follow?"

Paul replied: "My thoughts are with her Majesty, of course, she's lost the captain of her ship.

"He was her right wingman, and in private he was the boss. He ran everything considering the Queen first, of course.

"At this moment in time, her Majesty is probably sat at her breakfast table watching this so the nation's thoughts and prays are with her."

Fans couldn't believe that the Queen would watch Lorraine and took to Twitter to poke fun at the thought.

One tweeted: "If the Queen is watching #PaulBurrell on @GMB…." followed by a gif of an old man saying "oh, f**k off."

Another wrote: "Paul Burrell reckons Her Majesty is 'probably sitting at home watching this' #lorraine," followed by a confused emoji.
