We may never know what Queen Elizabeth really thinks about Donald Trump-- but now we know what Queen Helena of England, played by Elizabeth Hurley in E!'s "The Royals," has to say.

In a special Presidents Day promo for the series, Hurley delivers a warning about "fake news" stories that are "definitely not true" about his (fictional) recent visit to Europe. These include that his "hands were too small for the doorknob of Buckingham Palace," that his spray tan came off on the sheets and that he enquired whether the English Channel had "good ratings." (We think the last one is actually quite believable.)

Created by Mistress, the film promotes the fourth season of the show, starting on March 11.
