As you know, members of the royal family should follow certain rules. In fact, there are much more guidelines than you might expect, from customs governing what they can eat to what they can wear. Being a royal may seem like a dream come true, but the reality is different.
Despite certain rules and the royal protocol, sometimes members of the royal family prove they are cooler than people might think. Let’s take a look at 8 times when Queen Elizabeth II surprised the public.
She was a mechanic
The Queen got her driving skills during World War II. Moreover, she was a mechanic in 1945 and worked on the engine of a Red Cross lorry.
It seems that the Queen enjoys posing for pictures. Back in 2014, she even photobombed two Australian hockey players, while they were posing for a selfie at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. This selfie is so cool!

Queen Elizabeth II was spotted wearing a hoodie while driving a Range Rover. It was probably one of her most unusual outfits.
Driving on the grass
Once, Queen Elizabeth drove up on the grass to swerve the time-wasters, after she has seen the family that was walking in Windsor Great Park. By the way, she is still driving in her 90's, even though she has never passed the driving test.
That James Bond sketch
During the Olympic Games in London back in 2012, the Queen joined in the fun. The royal greeted Daniel Craig in the Buckingham Palace, and they both flew to the ceremony on a helicopter.
Queen is fond of Ali G impressions
It may seem rather unroyal to find Sacha Baron Cohen’s depiction of the Staines-based character funny. However, according to Prince William, she does.
Charmed by Trudeau
On the contrary, you are forever young. I was honoured to toast your lifetime of service tonight. https://t.co/xcXGiSj6OT— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) 27 ноября 2015 г.
Queen Elizabeth II was flattered by Mr. Trudeau’s tribute to her and responded in her speech in a funny way.

This photo was taken in 1993, at a shooting center in Surrey. It is so unusual to see Queen Elizabeth II firing a machine gun!
The Queen is indeed way cooler than we could have imagined. Do you agree?
