Sunny will be sent ashore from HMS Lancaster

A foul-mouthed parrot, which blurts out expletives and pecks people when she’s angry, is to be removed from a British Royal Navy ship to spare any embarrassment during a visit by Queen Elizabeth.

African-grey parrot Sunny will be sent ashore from HMS Lancaster so she doesn’t ruffle any royal feathers when the queen and her husband Prince Philip visit the ship on British newspapers reported on Wednesday.

The frigate’s 205-strong crew are determined to avoid a repeat of a recent visit by the British fleet’s commander-in-chief, when Sunny’s four-lettered rantings could be heard even though she was locked in a cupboard.
