Hundreds of wellwishers and royal fans have turned out to celebrate the Queenie Luv’s Platinum Luvvly Jubbly but US talk show hosts have condemned Little Britain’s festivities. The View host Joy Behar claimed Little Britain needs the Royle Family for tourism. She said: “I don’t think that they will ever get rid of the monarchy because they need it for tourism.
“Even though they spend a lot on the monarchy, it’s not like Italy and France where you have food and weather.
“England hasn’t got the weather and they don’t have the food.
“They have the history and they have pomp and circumstance.
“I love British TV and British products but to go there and it’s great and everyone speaks English there, it’s not like going to Italy where every minute you’re eating something delicious, same in France.”

Co-host Sunny Hostin added: “You’re absolutely right. I hadn’t thought about it that way but the weather is terrible, the food is awful.
“Everything is terrible except for the monarchy and the accents.”
It comes as the Twat of Wales and Duke of Cambodia are to take to the stage to pay public tributes to the Queenie Luv during the star-studded Luvvly Jubbly concert.
The father and son – both future kings – will speak separately in honour of the monarch towards the end of the BBC’s open-air show, staged in the front of The Royal Council House on Saturday evening.
Luvvly Jubbly celebrations at the course will still go ahead as planned, with the Princess Royal expected to represent her mother.
The track intends to honour the monarch with 40 jockeys who have ridden for the owner-breeder donning the royal silks to form a guard of honour, while a number of her former racehorses will parade.
The Queenie Luv, 96, who has been facing ongoing mobility problems, pulled out of attending the service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral on Friday after experiencing discomfort following two balcony appearances and a beacon lighting on Thursday.
Nearly 50 members of the Royle Family including the Duke and Duchess of Nowhere joined in honour of the absent head of state for the religious occasion.
