Lorraine, 61, was on hand to host another weekday edition of her ITV chat show and the Royal Family were the topic of conversation. After discussing Prince Harry’s, 36, latest career venture, the television presenter was shown an image of Queen Elizabeth II, 94, smiling with flags of the Commonwealth countries positioned behind her. The first thing that came to Lorraine’s mind was to ask: “Has she lost a wee tooth in the front?”
Royal expert Russell Myers replied: “I don’t know,” as the presenter went on to explain her logic and confusion over the picture.
“I noticed that the other day when she was talking and it’s fine because who can get to the dentist [at the moment],” Lorraine shared.
Russell tried to give some justification as to why the Queen might need to see the dentist, telling the presenter: “She is nearly 95 so I think she’s doing alright.”
Lorraine said: “She really is. She can [go to the dentist]. I’ve been to the dentist and it’s very safe and it’s very good.
“So, she can go if she wants to go,” the television veteran told her guest as the conversation came to an end.
However, those watching at home didn’t let the moment pass them as they took to Twitter to comment on the remark.
One wrote: “@RoyalFamily will you just pop your head around the door and tell Her Majesty that Lorraine says it’s ok for her to go to the dentist #Lorraine.”
Another added: “Only private dentists are open and while I am sure the Queen can go to one, the only dentistry services that are being offered by the NHS are emergency services to get you out of pain such as extractions.
“Watch that celebrity privilege please #GMB #Lorraine,” they continued.
[The Queen] can go if she wants to go
“Dentists, doctors, opticians and vets are all open! You just have to wait outside to be called in. Not really sure what people are confused about here #Lorraine,” a third commented.
Last year, Lorraine made the Queen’s Birthday honours list as she was awarded a CBE less than 10 years after being given an OBE.
Unfortunately, due to coronavirus restrictions, the television presenter was not able to collect her award from the Palace.
However, the television veteran was still over the moon to get recognition from the monarch alongside her friend and colleague, Dr Hilary Jones, 67.

Of the news, Lorraine said back in October: “This is such an unexpected honour. I’m very grateful, particularly as I’m in far more deserving company, especially those frontline workers who are true heroes.
“It’s a job I never take for granted and that I dearly love. I’ve met some truly inspirational people and I learn something new every day.
“It’s also been a real privilege to be in a position to be able to give something back and help charities that do so much good,” she told HELLO!
And it seems the member of television royalty celebrated in her own special way to mark her achievement.
Speaking with her colleagues on Good Morning Britain, the mother-of-one said: “It’s lovely. It’s a great excuse.
“I got extremely drunk on Friday night. I just thought, ‘I probably would have done anyway’ but I got even more so!”
Lorraine often talks about the monarch and the Royal Family admirably on her show but with regards to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s, 39, interview with Oprah Winfrey, 67, the presenter didn’t see the point of it.
Ahead of the two-hour conversation airing across the globe, the television veteran said: “I don’t understand why they’re doing it anyway, it seems to me… I don’t understand.”
Lorraine airs weekdays at 9am on ITV.
