Howard Stern has had enough of Queen Elizabeth II.
The outspoken radio personality slammed the wall-to-wall US media coverage of the monarch’s death in a tirade during Monday’s segment of The Howard Stern Show.
“It’s weird traditions and everything and I’m like, ‘Jesus, enough with the Queen!” he told co-host Robin Quivers when her death was brought up. “I mean, it’s America, we don’t have a Queen.”
“I mean, I get it,” he continued. “The Queen was a nice lady, I guess. My whole life the Queen has been the same Queen and there’s a tradition there and she did her duty to her country, I get it, I get it, I get it but we gotta get back to Trump, where those papers are that they found at Mar-A-Lago.”
When Quivers interjected and asked if he didn’t “like the distraction of the Queen,” he shot back, “No, it’s annoying!”
The shock jock was referring to the trove of classified documents found at Mar-A-Lago, former President Donald Trump’s Florida resort home, that was uncovered during an August search.
Stern would no doubt be annoyed by the media coverage that has continued unabated since the Queen died Thursday at age 96.
“The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon,” the royal family tweeted after she had been placed under “medical supervision.” “The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”
“We are all very grateful — both sides putting all things aside for the Queen,” a royal source told Page Six exclusively.
Unfortunately, he arrived hours after Her Majesty died.
Middleton, similarly, stayed behind in England to be with their children — Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4 — on their first day of school.
