Queen quizzes Osborne on UK gold reserves sale

The Queen raised a chuckle when she questioned Chancellor George Osborne about Britain's gold reserves before attending Cabinet today.

As she was being introduced to the MPs inside Number 10 the Queen stopped and spoke to Mr Osborne.

Although some of her question is inaudible, the Queen asks about gold bars before saying "regrettably" it seems some of them "don't belong to us".

The Chancellor replies, "Some of them were sold, but we've still got some left", to which his cabinet colleagues laugh.
