QUEEN IS NOT AMUSED BY BERLUSCONI !
Footage has emerged of the Queen expressing mild irritation at Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi for being too noisy.
The incident took place as the Queen posed with world leaders from the G20 summit in the traditional "family" photograph at Buckingham Palace.
Moments after the image was taken Mr Berlusconi shouted "Mr Obama".
The Queen then turns around in mock frustration and appears to say: "What is it? Why does he have to shout?"
The footage has been placed on the YouTube website and has quickly proved to be a popular clip.
Mr Berlusconi has developed a reputation for his outspoken comments and playful behaviour, even on the world stage.
Last year he was filmed apparently playing "hide and seek" with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, hiding behind a large column as she walked past.
And he was also criticised for describing Barack Obama as "young, handsome, and tanned". The Italian leader accused his critics of being humourless "imbeciles".
Meanwhile, Mr Berlusconi has confirmed that the G20 will hold a third summit on the financial crisis later this year in Japan, to follow up world leaders' meetings in London this week and in Washington in November.
