London, Oct 23 : American portrait photographer Annie Leibovitz could fuel a controversy after she commented that the Queen was "a little perturbed" before her photo session. Last year, the BBC had claimed that the Queen had walked out of her photo shoot with Leibovitz "in a huff", landing itself in trouble.
Now, the photographer has fuelled a debate over the Queen's state of mind by saying she "knew something was up" when Her Majesty entered the room during the shoot at Buckingham Palace.
"We were all very nervous. The Queen came down the hall and she looked a little perturbed. I knew something was up. All her dressers were about 20 feet away - no one was near her. She was coming down the hall very purposefully. As she came in she said 'I don't have much time'," the Telegraph quoted her as saying.
Leibovitz also said that, after the Queen's rushed entrance, she felt she would only get five minutes of the scheduled 25 minutes.
The American photographer's brief photo shoot with the Queen was captured in the BBC documentary A Year With The Queen.
