The Queen is getting well and truly into the Commonwealth Games spirit, even photo-bombing some Australian athletes’ selfie.

She was in Glasgow to greet the hockey teams, and of course while she was about everyone had their phones out to snap HRM.

Jayde Taylor however got a selfie with her teammate next to the Queen and couldn’t believe her luck when the Queen posed, smiling down the lens of the camera for the perfect photo opportunity.

Taylor tweeted: ‘Ahh the Queen photo-bombed our selfie!!!’

At first glance it may seem like a fake and that the Queen has been super-imposed.

However, when looking at team-mate Anna Flanagan’s photo taken just moments before, you can see the Queen and Prince Philip behind the netting to meet and greet the athletes.

The girls were delighted as they had just beaten Malaysia 4-0 in their preliminary hockey match.

It has to go down as one of the best selfies ever, and has already had 1,700 retweets in less than an hour.
