Queen Elizabeth wears a hoodie while sitting behind the wheel of a Range Rover in a photo that shows a different side to the royal icon.
The picture, which was published in the latest issue of Us Weekly, reportedly was taken after a grouse hunting session over the weekend. In the picture, the Queen wears the hoodie over her head and close to her eyes as she peers over the steering wheel of her Range Rover.
It’s a pleasant change for the Royal Family that, for the past week or so, has some even more scandalous pictures to deal with. A series of photographs of Prince Harry at a wild bachelor party in Las Vegas shook the family, leading to criticism of Harry and even a break-up with his model girlfriend.
The Queen reportedly met up with her grandson Harry and his father, Prince Charles, after the Las Vegas pictures were released. Not all of the family has been as supportive as Prince Charles and the Queen, Us Weekly reported. His brother William decided to remain at his home in Angelsey, Wales with his wife Kate Middleton rather than attend the emergency family summit.
Before Harry’s scandal broke, it was the Queen who was getting most of the headlines in the Royal Family, The Huffington Post noted. She made quite a splash at the Olympics, whether it was parachuting in from an airplane with James Bond (although not really) or watching the athletes enter the Opening Ceremonies with an unimpressed look.
Now it appears that the suddenly hip Queen wears hoodies instead of her trademark large floppy hats, but The Huffington Post may have another explanation. The picture, which can be seen here, might actually be a scarf pinned down to hear head with bobby pins, the report suggested.
