Queen Elizabeth was caught lambasting the behavior of Chinese officials who visited England last year on a state visit with President Xi Jinping. While speaking to Metropolitan Police Commander Lucy D'Orsi at a garden party, the Queen replied "oh, bad luck" upon hearing the senior police officer had overseen security during President Xi's UK visit.

D'Orsi goes on to call the state visit a "testing time" to which the Queen adds, "They were very rude to the ambassador."
