Photobombs happen all the time.
A photobomb by Queen Elizabeth -- smiling no less -- does not.
Jayde Taylor, an athlete competing in the Glasgow Commonwealth Games with the Australian women's hockey team, was warming down with her teammate Brooke Peris when the Queen stopped by to say hello. It was at that point that Taylor snapped the photo that Instagram dreams are made of.
"Brooke [Peris] and I planned it so that when she came out the door she would be behind us. And then she came out and smiled at the camera!" Taylor told ABC News. "We were in the right spot at the right time."
However, meeting the royal may have surpassed the experience of taking a photo with her.
"She asked us a bit about the pitch, how we were going and told us to enjoy our time here," Taylor said. "She was lovely. Really, really lovely."
