Fifi Box poked fun at the royal family on Monday night's episode of Have You Been Paying Attention, and she wasn't the only one.

The presenter made fun of the rumoured feud between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and the rest of the royal family, including the Queen.

Host Tom Gleisner played a clip of Her Majesty's welcome speech at the United Nations Climate Change Conference.

"I could not be more proud of them," she said in the clip, with Tom asking the panel who the Queen was referring to.

Fifi quickly pushed her buzzer and jokingly responded, "Meghan Markle's trolls?"

As the panel and audience began laughing, Tom joked: "She's unleashed them!"

Aaron Chen then followed up, saying: "Maybe some of her corgis learned to backflip?"

"Not her dogs, but it is within the royal circle," Tom said, trying to get the answer out of the group. 

Ed Kavalee knew the answer, saying, "This was spicy, because she thanked Prince Charles and then Prince William for their efforts in conservation, but didn't thank Prince Harry and Meghan Markle!"

Prince Harry and Meghan are known advocates for the environment, with the Duke of Sussex saying in May that climate change is one of "the most pressing issues we are facing".

The Duke of Sussex has previously said that becoming a father galvanised his efforts to tackle environmental issues and the climate crisis, launching his eco-travel initiative Travelyst in 2019.

"With kids growing up in today’s world, pretty depressing, right, depending on where you live, your home country is either on fire, it’s either underwater, houses or forests are being flattened," he said in the Apple TV+ special The Me You Can't See: A Path Forward.

He recently spoke about it again in September when he hosted Global Citizens Live in New York City.

While the Queen didn't mention them, she did praise her late husband Prince Philip, who passed away earlier this year, before speaking about Charles and William.

"It is a source of great pride to me that the leading role my husband paid in encouraging people to protect our fragile planet lives on through the work of our eldest son Charles and his eldest son William," she said. "I could not be more proud of them."

Prince Philip was an environmentalist and championed the natural world long before it was at the forefront of people's minds as it is today.

He was president of the WWF – World Wildlife Fund – from 1981 to 1996 and famously drove an eco-friendly taxi around the streets of London decades before green vehicles were more widely used.
