Does anyone have any stories of mundane interactions with The Queen?

I have two. 

One day, walking home from college, I noticed an unusual crowd gathered round a hotel entrance. I asked why, I was told The Queen was there. So I waited about a minute, and a small old lady surrounded by some big guys in suits appeared and got in a fancy car. Underwhelmed, I walked home.

The second one was better. She was in town to "open" an outdoor stage and I was looking after the PA system for all the speeches etc. The microphone was there ready for her, she looked at me, pulled a wee chord to unveil a plaque, but didn't speak. So there's my claim to Royal fame, I nearly did sound for The Queen.

I don't, though apparently I once met Charles. I don't remember it though.

Her and Philip were driven past a pub beer garden me and some friends were in. One in particular had rushed out to be sick in a drain just as they went past.

Is it true that she walked really fast? Because I heard she had some amount of pace.

Scots lingering outside Balmoral trying to put a positive "she loved this place and Scotland" spin on the Queen simply using it as a pre-existing royal place to dodge her troublesome subjects.

Not only that. Most of the wildlife around Windsor has already been murdered so she liked to come up here and kill ours. Lovely woman.

And to break from the shitfest, they go online to talk about it as well :lol:

My daughter asked why the queen was getting buried again tonight....the wife wasn't too happy when I told her it was just the highlights and Gary Lineker would be on in a minute to discuss it

Hate to be the one to tell you but that's not child birth mate.

Hate to be the one to tell you but there's a fair bit of pooping involved in childbirth

Its almost like some kind of voluntary inclusion in the peoples monarchy of north korea with some of the grief merchants and utter f**k sticks who’ve outed themselves recently. Ive managed to avoid the thing in terms of the wall to wall coverage by being abroad but f**k me even the shite ive seen on twitter etc would make you take the boke. Lost a lot of respect for a lot of people i previously liked.
