BRITAIN'S Queen Elizabeth gives David Cameron a lesson in recession-era thrift during one of her weekly audiences with her Prime Minister.

The image taken from a new documentary by director Michael Waldman, shows how instead of a roaring log fire, the hearth at Balmoral is graced with an electric convection heater, of a type available for less than £20 (€23).

Film-makers were given access to the Royal household throughout the Diamond Jubilee year for the documentary, 'Our Queen', which will be broadcast by ITV this Sunday.

The queen is currently recovering from a bout of gastroenteritis and will not attend any public engagements until next week, Buckingham Palace has said.
