The Queen delighted a group of Australian hockey players when she photobombed their selfie at the Commonwealth Games.

Her Majesty approached the Hockeyroos from the other side of a wire fence as they were snapping a photo, and can be seen grinning from ear-to-ear in the shot.

Jayde Taylor, who is pictured posing in the selfie with teammate Brooke Peris, didn’t waste any time in tweeting the priceless photo.

The 20th Commonwealth Games opened in style in Glasgow on Wednesday evening with a spectacular ceremony featuring fireworks, 41 Scottish terriers, a giant haggis, golf glubs, and a performance from Rod Stewart.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh attended the opening bash, as well as Prince Charles and his wife the Duchess of Cornwall.

An estimated one billion viewers around the world tuned in to watch the ceremony, which also saw performances from John Barrowman and Susan Boyle.
