Queen Elizabeth is certainly not someone whose face one would easily forget!
That being said, it seems that Her Majesty does manage to go under the radar from time to time, especially while she is spending time at the Balmoral Castle in Scotland.
Former protection officer of the monarch, Richard Griffin spoke about the time some American tourists failed to recognize the Queen and how she decided to have some fun with them instead of correcting them.
Griffin said that while she was walking around the estate, she had a run-in with some tourists who were unaware that they were speaking to the Queen herself.
Her former protection officer, Richard Griffin, said, where he revealed that the tourists asked the Queen whether she lived in the area, and as a response, the Queen said she had a house nearby.
The oblivious American tourists then asked her if she has ever met the Queen to which she pointed at Griffin and said: “No, but this policeman has.” the former officer, who worked with the monarch for over 30 years.
While Griffin refrained from mentioning how the conversation carried on from there, he did reveal that the visitors bid adieu without knowing that they had just met Queen Elizabeth II herself.
