Say cheese! Kid tries to take a selfie in front of Queen Elizabeth

One was mildly amused.

NICE TRY, KID.

Queen Elizabeth was having a wander around St George’s Market in Belfast today when this teenager decided he was going to try to get a selfie with her in the background.

In what could well be her first selfie, the Queen looks like she’s going for a classic smiling-with-her-eyes pose (even if the rest of her face is a bit unimpressed).  We like the annoyed looking man behind the kid though, who looks like he’s about to give the scolding of a lifetime.

In the next shot, the Queen looks marginally happier to be in the photo.

Now comes the wait for the selfie to pop up on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook/somewhere. Don’t know if it’ll top the Pope Francis selfie from last year though.
