Queen Elizabeth photobombs selfie

If you're going to be photobombed, it might as well be by royalty.

A smiling Queen Elizabeth II showed up in the background of a selfie taken by two Australian hockey players.

Jayde Taylor and Brooke Peris took the perfectly timed shot of the British monarch at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland.

The two admit they timed the shot knowing Her Majesty was moving into view.

The photo has been retweeted thousands of times, encouraging copycat attempts.

It also appeared on the front page of the British newspaper "The Times."
