An Australian hockey player’s selfie is getting the royal seal of approval from Queen Elizabeth II.
Jayde Taylor snapped a photo of herself with teammate Brooke Peris after winning a match at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow on Thursday. The Queen, who was in the Scottish city taking in the games, posed behind them with a broad smile on her face.

That was followed up by a tweet to @TheEllenShow:
“@TheEllenShow I think our selfie tops yours! #queenselfie #queenphotobomb #hockeyroos #callme,” she tweeted, referencing the infamous Oscars selfie.
Taylor’s royal photobomb selfie had been retweeted more than 6,500 times by Thursday evening.
We are definitely amused.

I swear the Queen's only intention for the next few weeks is to walk around Glasgow and photo bomb as many athlete selfies as possible— Scott Langford (@Sportrepreneur) July 24, 2014
