A hilarious spoof of Queen Elizabeth’s annual Christmas broadcast has left desi netizens in splits after it went viral on social media.
Tweeted by journalist Kanika Kohli, the video features Queen Elizabeth’s voice dubbed in Punjabi where she is ‘discussing the dramatic decision by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle of stepping back from their royal duties’ and ‘Senior Members of Royal Family’.
Expressing ‘dismay’ over the couple’s move, the humourous Punjabi intimation of the Queen ‘blames’ Markle for the decision. “From the day this girl has come to our house, she has created havoc,” she can be heard saying in the video. She then goes on to criticise Prince Harry and says, “He too is ready to give up his royalty status and leave everything for her. He is ready to make burgers and pizzas but being a prince is not acceptable to him.”
