“Bloody hell, Your Majesty, I nearly shot you,” Royal guardsman said
Los Angeles : Britains Royal Queen Elizabeth II was about to get shot by a guardsman in a shocking encounter.
According to reports, the Queen was once found strolling palace gardens at 3am by a guardsman.
The shocked guardsman was also heard saying: “Bloody hell, Your Majesty . I nearly shot you”, to which the Queen quipped in response: “That’s quite all right. Next time I’ll ring through beforehand so you don’t have to shoot me.”
Sources were heard saying that the Queen sometimes walks late when she is unable to fall asleep and roams around the palace grounds wearing a winter coat.
It was on one such night that a guardsman apparently came across the majesty asked her to realise that it was the Head of State.
The Queen has been ill lately and was unable to attend New Year's Day church service.
Reports suggest that the encounter apparently happened at the Monarch’s official London residence Buckingham Palace.
Some also say that the incident actually took place several years ago and that the 90-year-old Queen is now unlikely to be found on similar expeditions.
A similar incident happened in 2013 when Prince Andrew was mistaken for an intruder and confronted by armed police as he walked in the Buckingham Palace garden.
