The Queen’s hilarious response to an American who asked her if she’d ever met the Queen

Queen Elizabeth II is probably one of the most famous public figures in the world – her 70 year reign as Queen in the British Royal Family and being the head of state in the UK and the Commonwealth means it is quite impossible to not know who she is. Which is why it was so funny when an American tourist asked Queen Elizabeth… wait for it; if she had ever met the Queen!

It's reported that she loves a good prank (even when she’s on the receiving end) and that she encourages her loved ones to give her joke gifts at Christmas. It's even rumoured that she was over the moon when the Duchess of Sussex gifted the Queen a singing hamster.
