Queen Elizabeth II is quite a driver.
Her Majesty was running late for church on Sunday when she got stuck behind a family enjoying a quiet stroll on a small roadway with their two children. But rather than simply wait for the group to move, the monarch went all James Bond-MI6 on them and careened onto the grass, swerving around the family before making her way to the religious service. And yes, you’d better believe Her Royal Highness was the one behind the wheel; just look at the face of the poor guy in the passenger’s seat:

Here’s the kicker though: The Queen made sure to give the family a trademark royal wave as she skidded by.
Scarlett Vincent, who was with her husband when the Queen maneuvered around them, told the Daily Mail, “[My husband] was as shocked and surprised as I was. I pointed at the car and she just smiled at us and waved.”
What a renegade!
Have we mentioned that the Queen doesn’t even have a driver’s licence? She’s also immune from prosecution, so Elizabeth II can do pretty much whatever she wants.
This bout of royal impatience isn’t an isolated incident, either. The monarch’s aggressive driving comes only about a week after Prince Philip was caught on camera telling a photographer to “just take the f—ing picture.”
Way to keep it classy, royals!
