Glasgow, Scotland is hosting the 2014 Commonwealth Games, which are taking place now. Queen Elizabeth II made a surprise visit to a women's field hockey game between Australia and Malaysia. Australian player Jayde Taylor took a selfie with a teammate. And who slipped into the background? The Queen herself!
Taylor admits that she planned the photo:
“Brooke [Peris] and I planned it so that when she came out the door she would be behind us. And then she came out and smiled at the camera. We were in the right spot at the right time.”
Later, they got to meet the Queen:
“The security guard led us all round and we got to meet her.
“She asked us a bit about the pitch, how we were going and told us to enjoy our time here. She was lovely, really, really lovely.”
