With the Commonwealth Games being held in Glasgow, Scotland, this week, the Royal Family can be seen …. and seen.

In the scrum of official photos, there’s one unofficial photo that’s been going around and with good reason: It’s literally the Royal Photobomb.

Jayde Taylor is a 29-year-old field hockey player from Perth, Western Australia. She was taking a selfie with teammate Brooke Peris and noticed a fairly important figure in the background: Queen Elizabeth.

For the record, Her Majesty wasn’t done there. She popped up in another selfie, also by an Australian field hockey player. This time it was Ashleigh Nelson.

Long live the Queen!
