Queen photobombs Aussie athletes

The Queen is a photobomber! (Photo: Twitter)

I love the smile.

During a walkabout while visiting athletes at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland, on Thursday, the Queen photobombed two Australian field hockey players who were taking a selfie.

The photo was tweeted by athlete Jayde Taylor.

The Queen is clearly smiling and looking at the camera as Taylor and another athlete take the self portrait.

I love everything about this photobomb. Well done, Your Majesty.

    I feel like the Queen is supposed to be in the picture lol… Possibly why the selfie is so off centered. :P

    I would agree the point was to get the Queen in the shot, Jen, but I’m fairly certain no one was expecting her to smile at the camera over their shoulders.
