5 Gaffes by World Leaders Caught on Tape

Queen Elizabeth’s unguarded comments this week a reminder of others before her.

Palace officials released a statement saying they do not comment on the queen's private conversations, adding that the Chinese state visit was "extremely successful."

Here are five other gaffes by world leaders caught on tape:

Cameron on the Queen

“The definition of relief is being the prime minister of the United Kingdom and ringing the queen and saying, ‘It’s all right, it’s OK.’ That was something. She purred down the line,” Cameron said.

He has since apologized.

Obama and Sarkozy on Netanyahu

Bush and Blair on Foreign Policy

"Yo, Blair" has reportedly since become a catchphrase in Britain.

Reagan on Foreign Policy

The joke was made in a voice check, The Associated Press reported. The gaffe was not broadcast over the air, but leaked later on.

Dutton joked it was running on “Cape York time.” Abbott responded, saying meetings in Port Moresby did not run on schedule, either, before Dutton replied, “Time doesn’t mean anything when you’re, you know, about to have water lapping at your door.”
