Queen Elizabeth II, Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, died on Thursday at the age of 96. The Queen ruled Britain for 70 years, during which she must have seen many changes in the world. It is often said that royal people are arrogant and arrogant, but Queen Elizabeth’s simplicity, tact (clever) and witty style have proved such things wrong on many occasions. Rather, she proved by these qualities that despite being from the royal family, how simple, easy and friendly she was to the common people. Let us know about some funny moments filled with this simplicity and tact of the Queen …
1- The Queen surprised the Saudi emperor by driving a fast car
There was a time when women were not allowed to drive a car in Saudi Arabia. During that time in the year 2003, the Sultan of Saudi Arabia came on a tour of Britain. Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Abdullah met Queen Elizabeth II in Scotland. Then the Queen said to the Crown Prince – let me show you my palace. Both of them went for a walk in the car. Now the thing to note here was that despite having all the servants, the queen herself decided to drive the car on this occasion. Actually, she was trying to explain one thing to the Sultan with her tact that women can also drive a car. The Queen drove her Land Rover car and made the Crown Prince sit in it and move around a lot. It is said that before this the Crown Prince had never sat in a car with a female driver. When he got down from the Queen’s car, there was a mixed expression of joy, fear and surprise on his face. As if he understood that women can drive a car just like men.
2- When selfie was taken with two female hockey players
People all over the world have great respect for the Queen and the Royal Family.

When she was leaving the field, two hockey players wanted to take a selfie with her. She was trying to take a selfie while walking, seeing this, the Queen immediately stopped and took her selfie with her smile. Which later became quite viral.
3- Jokingly answered the talk of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
The queen often used to joke lightly with her guests. In 2015, the Queen met Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau for dinner in Malta. During his conversation with the Queen, Trudeau told the Queen that he is the 12th Prime Minister of Canada serving during her reign.
Then it was the Queen’s turn, the Queen giving a toast to Prime Minister Trudeau, saying, “Thank you, Prime Minister of Canada, for making me feel so old… After that everyone started laughing out loud.”
4. Had a joke with former US President George W. Bush

He was supposed to say 1976 but his tongue slipped, he said 1776. The Queen then joked about his slippery tongue, saying “I wondered if I should begin this toast by saying, ‘When I was here in 1776…’.”
