This is the moment a brave crew member had to ask Her Majesty to start again from the very beginning.

The Queen had to re-record last year's Christmas message, after she was interrupted by a pesky chirping bird in the gardens of Buckingham Palace.

Known affectionately as 'One Take Windsor' for her uncanny ability to finish takes the first time, was told to re-record the whole speech "from the top" by a member of the production team.

The crew member was filmed telling the Queen to "redo it from the top" after the bird started cheeping.

The Queen replied: "From the top of the second page?"

He replied: "From the very start."

Her Majesty responded: "You want the whole thing again?"

After laughing, she was told "if possible".

The scene was filmed during the making of the upcoming ITV documentary Queen of the World. In other moments, Meghan Markle revealed that she had "something blue" sewn into her wedding dress:

The blue fabric was taken from a dress she wore on her first date with Prince Harry.

"Wow, very pretty. Beautiful. Somewhere in here, there’s a piece of…did you see it?" she said.

"The piece of blue fabric that's stitched inside? It was my 'something blue'. It's fabric from the dress that I wore on our first date."

Queen of the World airs tomorrow night (September 25) on ITV.
