Queen Elizabeth, ruler of the photobombing empire

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Jul 24, 2014

Her Majesty, the queen of England, has just reached all-time coolness levels in the world of social media.

Two Australian field hockey players, Jayde Taylor and Brookie Peris, are competing in the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland. The event is an Olympics-style multi-sport festival for countries like Australia and Canada who are members of the British commonwealth.

The Telegraph says that before their match against Malaysia, the women were taking "selfies" when Queen Elizabeth II walked nearby.

The rest is photobombing history.

Their teammate, Anna Flanagan, shared in the photobombing fun.
