21 of Queen Elizabeth II’s Funniest Moments Caught on Camera
Photographers snapped these shots at exactly the right moment.
An anniversary to remember
On the Queen’s 72nd wedding anniversary to Prince Phillip, she went to sign a visitor guest book at the Royal Institute of International Affairs. According to People, the Queen asked Dr. Robin Niblett, Chatham House director, “What’s the date?” He replied that the date was November 20, and the Queen then laughed and remarked, “Well, of course I know what the date is!” Then, after signing her name, the Queen said, “Now, well, that proves I came here.” Their relationship has always been full of smiles and laughs. Here’s a day in the life of the young Queen Elizabeth II.
Meghan Markle and the Queen attended the opening of the new Mersey Gateway Bridge together. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have since “stepped back” from royal duties. Here’s what that means.
This hilarious shot of Queen Elizabeth II was taken at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding. We’ve all been guilty of getting bored in church. For more laughs, check out the funniest royal wedding moments caught on camera.
What’s so funny?
The Queen and Prince Charles share a joke during the sack race at the Braemar Gathering in 2017. If going to a sack race seems bizarre, here’s the most bizarre perks of the royal family.
Is it time to leave yet?
Queen Elizabeth II loves horses, but at this particular horse show, she had places to be and people to see.
Whoops, look like the Queen blinked because of the flash. It’s OK though, she knows how to laugh about it.
This picture might not be that funny but the comment Queen Elizabeth II made before it was taken was pretty hilarious. During her visit to the Chelsea Flower Show in 2016, herb gardener Jekka McVicar explained to the Queen that Lily of the Valley was once used as a poison. The Queen responded by saying, “I’ve been given two bunches this week. Perhaps they want me dead.” These fascinating facts—and a few scandals—about the Queen will explain her sassy remark.
Queen Elizabeth II itches her nose while she patiently awaits some action at a horserace back in 2015.
Riding with royalty
The Queen looks so little behind the wheel.
Even the Queen likes to participate in the occasional photobomb.
Rain, rain go away
Don’t worry, Queen Elizabeth, we don’t like the rain either. The Queen doesn’t have to hide her feelings all the time, and she also doesn’t have to follow these British laws.
Celebrate good times
Queen Elizabeth II and John Warren celebrate after the Queen’s horse Sign Manual wins the Dreweatts Handicap Stakes in 2013. This is what Queen Elizabeth II eats before breakfast.
It looks like the Queen said something so funny that Kate burst out laughing. If only we knew what it was.
Don’t do that Prince William
We really wonder what Prince William said or did to cause the Queen to make that face. Maybe he said one of these words that the royal family is never, ever allowed to say.
Not enjoying the weather
Standing on the grass in high heels isn’t fun for any lady, especially one of royalty.
Calm down, wind
Ahh, the struggles of wearing a dress on a windy day. The Queen and Michelle know how hard it can be.
When you work as hard as Queen Elizabeth II it’s hard to not get caught yawning. Maybe someone else should take the wheel.
Is it proper royal protocol to have your tongue sticking out for photos? Tongues may not be in permitted, but everyone breaks rules sometimes, especially in these candid, rarely seen photos of the royal family.
Even the Queen has boogers. But, not everyone has a fancy handkerchief to clean up in style like her. Here are 6 ways Queen Elizabeth II sends her staff secret messages.
Not fond of flowers
Maybe they weren’t her taste?
Not on her watch
Apparently, something was going down at the 2011 horse race in Berkshire, Britain.
