Times The Queen Cracked Us Up

Queen Elizabeth II is now the world’s longest-reigning queen, having become the Head of the Commonwealth in 1952. Some of us might expect that a leader with such a complex and stressful public role would have a dour or unpleasant demeanor. Not so for Queen Elizabeth, who is well-known for her sharp wit and sometimes biting humor.

Whether she’s cracking everyone else up or just enjoying a good laugh herself, we can’t get enough of the Queen’s terrific sense of humor. Here are some of our favorite times that she told a hilarious joke, threw shade at someone, or just ended up in a funny photo. Wait until you see the time she photo-bombed some soccer players.

She’s An Animal Lover, But…

She’s not a fan of animals that hog the spotlight with rude behavior when she’s around, apparently. The photo was taken as the Queen was greeted by the Royal Regiment of Scotland and their mascot Cruachan IV, a Shetland pony that just couldn’t seem to hold it any longer.

As you can see, one of the guards couldn’t stop himself from laughing at the improbable sight. The Queen herself broke out into a wide smile shortly after this picture was taken and she had gotten a little further away from the smelly situation.

Laughing It Up Back In 1963

People laughing until they grip their guts is always a sight to see. Not only is it pleasing, but it’s also quite infectious. Here, we see the Queen laughing heartily alongside Prince Philip, who’s also grinning from ear to ear.

This touching picture was taken on May 11, 1963. These two got to share hilarious moments together for many years. When’s the last time you laughed at something this hard?

Sneaky Jokester

In 2005, Prince Philip had to wear his uniform and bearskin hat at Buckingham Palace. Now, we don’t know if this outfit is something that amused the Queen to see him wearing, or if he said something silly to her.

We just know that the two of them shared giggles in this moment and it looks so wholesome. It’s almost like he was only playing dress up for her and cracked her up.

The Queen Is Not Above An Occasional Photo-bomb

Twitter user Jayde Taylor posted this amazing selfie she took at the 2014 Commonwealth Games. In it, she and another member of the Australian hockey team are photo-bombed by a very unexpected face: Queen Elizabeth’s! She was not even scheduled to attend the games, making her appearance in the photo even more shocking.

Jayde wrote, “Ahhh The Queen photo-bombed our selfie!!” and also noticed that the Head of the Commonwealth made a point to put on a huge smile for the snapshot. The royals are not supposed to take selfies with fans, but who’s going to deny the Queen if she wants to jump into one?

Jokes At The Market

No matter where she is, the Queen is going to get the folks going. She carries a charm that’s unmatched. What we would give to be a fly on the wall in whatever room she graces with her presence.

We want to know what’s so funny here! In this example, she’s with a companion at the local market in Cork, Ireland. He has his hands on some seafood and she’s smiling like she just finished her joke.

That Time She Pretended To Be A White House Groundskeeper

It’s not every day that you see the Queen of England digging a hole in a formal outfit while the U.S. President and First Lady look on. Here’s the story: the Queen traveled to Washington, D.C. in 1991. While in town, she made an official visit to the White House where she and then-President George H. W. Bush planted a linden tree on the South Lawn.

In 1937, Elizabeth’s father King George VI planted the same type of tree there but it was lost in a storm in 1990 so the Queen replaced it. This photo happened to catch a moment where it appeared that she was doing all the work.

The Queen Poked Fun At Her Family’s Holiday Traditions

In April 2018, Queen Elizabeth gave a tour of Buckingham Palace for a documentary called The Queen’s Green Planet. The topic of Christmas came up, and Elizabeth grabbed the opportunity to take a good-natured jab at Princes William and Harry.

“The problem is the children love knocking [the ornaments] off. My great-grandchildren do. Even the grandchildren [William and Harry] still.” She then shared her technique for stopping the misbehavior. “The great thing is to make them decorate it – then they’re a bit more careful,” she teased.

Royal Scots Dragoon Guards Cracking Up

The Queen doesn’t seem to lead a dull moment in her life. One day she’s making foreign dignitaries laugh, and the next she’s cracking up the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards. That sounds a lot harder than she makes it look.

The uniformed officers sat down to pose for a flick, but the Queen managed to slip in a joke, it seems. They can’t even look at the camera like they’re supposed to be doing.

Like Grandmother, Like Grandson

An inspection from the Queen of England during your graduation ceremony would probably terrify anyone. But if your grandmother is the Queen, you might just crack a grin as she passes by.

That’s exactly what happened when this photo was snapped, as Harry graduated from Sandhurst Military Academy in 2006. It’s not clear whether the Queen or Prince Harry was the first to smile as they came face-to-face but there’s no denying that they both look rather mischievous here!

The Queen Can Even Laugh Off Protestors

In 1986 the Queen and Prince Philip paid a state visit to New Zealand. As the pair traveled through Auckland in an open vehicle, two women dressed as police officers approached and pelted the car with eggs. The women were protesting a treaty between the British Crown and New Zealand’s native Maoris that was signed well over a century earlier.

Elizabeth II was hit on the thigh with one of the eggs. Although she was clearly unhappy about the attack, she later was able to joke about the incident. “New Zealand has long been renowned for its dairy produce, though I should say that I myself prefer my New Zealand eggs for breakfast,” she cracked.

“Yes, But Not Like That.”

Both Queen Elizabeth II and Kate Middleton have visited artist Lucian Freud’s exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London. Freud was known for having his subjects pose (often nude) for long extensions of time while he painted them.

On the same day that Queen Elizabeth II visited the art exhibit, an art curator asked the queen if she, herself had ever posed for Lucian Freud. She reportedly smiled and said, “Yes, but not like that.” Her portrait by Freud was included in an exhibit at Windsor Castle, painted in a respectful manner, of course.

Fun With The Granddaughter-In-Law

Okay, you’ve got to believe us by now. No matter who it is, the Queen is going to make them laugh up a storm. We’re laughing just from looking at this picture.

The Queen was with her granddaughter-in-law, Duchess Kate, in Nottingham, England. They had the pleasure of enjoying a children’s sporting event together. What if the Queen was yelling at a little kid to perform better, but in a joking way? That would be cause for some laughter.

She Made President Reagan LOL At A State Dinner

This photograph of Queen Elizabeth and President Reagan was snapped at a state dinner in San Francisco during one of her official visits to the United States. Reagan is obviously bowled over by something the Queen has just said during her address to the crowd… what was it?

With her usual deadpan delivery, Queen Elizabeth had made a joke about the northern California weather. “I knew before we came that we had exported many of our traditions to the United States, she said.” But I had not realized before that weather was one of them.”

“You Look Just Like The Queen”

Have you ever mistaken someone for a celebrity? Well, this is like that, only the opposite. One woman was lucky enough to bump into the Her Royal Highness while Queen Elizabeth II was out on a walk.

She was casually dressed and trying not to call attention to herself when a stranger commented to her that she “looked just like the Queen.” Instead of a polite response, the Queen decided to take a jab, and replied: “How reassuring.” That woman must have been totally baffled as to what just happened.

The Queen Poked Fun At Margaret Thatcher

Back when Margaret Thatcher was Prime Minister, she and Queen Elizabeth II attended a diplomatic reception at Buckingham Palace. The two women were known for butting heads, and the Queen often mimicked Thatcher’s over-the-top accent.

Thatcher had sat-out the reception the previous year, and when she showed up the following year she claimed she felt faint needed to rest. Elizabeth II was amused by the situation and told a guest. “Oh, look! She’s keeled over again.”

She’s A Pistol, That Woman

Her sister Princess Margaret was a huge fan of music, and the Queen herself has met many musicians, including Elton John, The Beatles, The Spice Girls, and The Rolling Stones. She famously refused to knight Mick Jagger for partying with her younger sister and putting her in danger.

In the 1960s the Queen attended a concert performed by the Everly Brothers, and she was less than impressed with the American country-rock band. After hearing them perform “Cathy’s Clown,” Queen Elizabeth II turned to her lady-in-waiting and exclaimed, “They sound like two cats being strangled.”

The Queen Burns Her Cousin’s Husband

At an event, Queen Elizabeth II was speaking with her first cousin, Margaret Rhodes, and her husband, Denys Rhodes. Denys was a thriller writer, best known for his novel The Syndicate that was also adapted into a film.

Elizabeth II asked Denys about his progress on his latest novel. He told her, “I desperately need a title.” The Queen reportedly replied, “I cannot think of a reason for giving you one.”

On Why She Wears Bright Colors

Queen Elizabeth II dresses to the nines, as Her Royal Highness is expected to. She wears the Royal Jewels, extravagant hats made for every occasion, and she’s known for wearing bright colors head-to-toe for her royal appearances.

When someone once asked her why she chooses such bright outfits, she replied, “If I wore beige, nobody would know who I am.” Of course, everyone would recognize Her Majesty, no matter her outfit, but her clever response shows her sense of humor.

The Queen Catches Bats At The Castle Herself

Yep, that’s right. While many of us run screaming from a room, demanding someone else kill the spider, here Her Royal Highness is, catching bats at Windsor Castle. Brian Hoey, a journalist who regularly chronicles the happenings of the royal family recalls this to be true.

Hoey said, “In the later afternoon it was quite common to see Her Majesty call for a butterfly net so that she could catch the bats which infest the upper reaches of the castle. She would catch them in the net, hand them to me and tell me to let them go outside. She was always very strict about them not being harmed.”

Well, That Makes Sense

If you’ve noticed one of the themes here, it’s that if you ask the Queen a question about herself, she’s bound to serve you a witty response. At one event held at the Buckingham Palace, Roger Moore who played James Bond was in attendance.

He brought his then-wife (unclear which one, as he’s had four wives) who asked the Queen why she chose to carry a purse with her while she was attending events in Buckingham Palace, where she lives. “This house is very big, you know,” she told her.

Step Aside, Captain

It’s very important for Her Royal Highness to be seen by the people she rules, and for her to be able to wave to and greet the crowd wherever she goes. On one such occasion, Queen Elizabeth II had arrived for a state visit, and the crowd was large, as expected.

She rode in the Royal Carriage, however, an escort commander was blocking the crowd’s view of the Queen as she rode along. The Queen wasn’t just going to let this happen. Instead, she told the commander, “Actually, Captain, I think it’s me they’ve come to see.” He must have turned beet red.

Smirking In Pink

Okay, who is the real funny one in this picture? The Queen certainly knows how to put a smile on other’s faces, and she’s been doing it for quite some time now.

This photo is dated October 13, 1986. The Queen has just arrived at a banquet during a royal visit to China. Here, you can see her sharing a charming smirk with former Chinese President Li Xiannian. One of them must have told a really good joke.

Don’t Mess With Her Corgis

Queen Elizabeth II has had an affection for Corgi dogs since she was a young girl. She absolutely adores them and they are allowed to do whatever they wish. No one should dare speak ill of her beloved dogs, but the controversial Princess Michael of Kent couldn’t help herself.

She once said in an interview that the Queen’s Corgis “should be shot.” The Queen took a shot of her own, replying, “They’re better behaved than she is!”

Who Is Eric Clapton?

The Queen has a lot of royal duties to attend to, so we can all forgive her for not keeping up with music and pop culture all of the time. She’s made some cringe-worthy comments to Britain’s top musicians, not recognizing who the members of Led Zeppelin were or their contribution to rock.

She also didn’t know who Eric Clapton was when she met him. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and 18-time Grammy Award-winning artist introduced himself to the Queen. She asked him, “Have you been playing a long time?” To which Clapton replied, “It must be 45 years now.”

Niagara Falls? Not Impressed

Having become the Head of the Commonwealth in 1952, Queen Elizabeth II has been able to visit some of the most incredible places in the world. Many of these visits are chosen for her, and she accepts the invitations in stride, whether or not she’s personally interested.

The Queen has visited Niagara Falls on several occasions, including in 1951 and 2016. When asked what she thought about the three great waterfalls on the border of Ontario and New York, she replied, “It looks very damp.”

She’s Not Worried About Car Damage

How would you imagine that you’d react if a concrete brick fell on top of your car? The average person would more than likely be upset. And you would think that someone of high status might have even more reason to be upset, as their car is very expensive. But that isn’t the case with the Queen.

When a cement brick fell on top of her car during a visit to Belfast in Northern Ireland, she just shrugged and replied, “It’s a strong car.”

She’s Not Afraid

It’s understandable that high-status members of society and celebrities need a great amount of security, especially when attending events with large crowds. But even at 92-years-old, Queen Elizabeth II is not afraid of mingling with the people, and waving off the recommendation of more security.

Her Royal Highness is often encouraged by members of her staff to increase her security, to which she replies, “I have to be seen to be believed.” Even after having lived through some of the worst assassinations on presidents in the world’s history, the Queen appears fearless.

She Drives “Like A Bat Out Of Hell”

Unlike the President of the United States, the Queen is often spotted driving herself to and from several of her country estates. And yes, at 92-years-old, she’s still driving, and people have a few things to say about her driving skills.

Her cousin Margaret Rhodes has said she drives, “Like a bat out of hell,” and she never wears her seatbelt! Pedestrians around Windsor Castle have even made formal complaints about the Queen’s reckless driving.

The 1977 Silver Jubilee Ceremony Went Terribly Wrong, And The Queen Thought It Was Funny

The year 1977 marked Queen Elizabeth II’s 25th year as the Queen of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth realms and a Silver Jubilee ceremony marked the occasion. During the ceremony, the Queen was to light a beacon at Snow Hill in Windsor Great Park, and people across the UK would then follow suit, lighting their own.

Nothing went correctly, as the pyrotechnics expert hired foolishly packed the beacon filled with fireworks to ensure it would light quickly enough. The beacon exploded prematurely, causing a deafening boom of fireworks. The Queen laughed, “I can’t think why you bothered to ask me [to do it!]” The pyrotechnics expert replied, “Your Majesty, I’m afraid it’s all going terribly wrong. In fact, everything that could possibly go wrong is going wrong.” Queen Elizabeth II replied, “Oh good. What fun!”

The Queen Plays Along For A James Bond Stunt

In 2012, during the opening ceremony of the Olympics, people were in for a real treat. Queen Elizabeth II partnered up with Daniel Craig (who played James Bond) and director Danny Boyle to create a short video.

The video shows the queen jumping from a helicopter down onto the London Stadium. Although Gary Connery was the stuntman to actually perform this, it showed that the Queen has a sense of humor and likes to have fun. The video has been watched 12 million times on YouTube.

It turns out that there is a good reason she turned down the chance to occupy the Iron Throne. As showrunner David Benioff explained on Late Night With Seth Meyers, “she’s not allowed to.

Apparently, the Queen of England is not allowed to sit on a foreign throne, so this is an esoteric rule we didn’t know about until that moment,” he said. “It looks like we’re saying, ‘Don’t touch, Queen.’” As if anyone could say that to her.

Moms don’t always seem funny to their children, but sometimes they have a few good jokes up their sleeves. When a parent tries to make their child laugh, it’s like a magician showing another magician a trick. They know all of the jokes already.

Nearly every year the Queen attends the Chelsea Flower Show. It’s been a tradition since Queen Alexandra opened the floral exhibition in 1913. At the 2016 show, Queen Elizabeth had a conversation with herb gardener Jekka McVicar, who later relayed details of the talk with Hello! magazine.

In the conversation, McVicar (who is now an Ambassador for health and well-being through gardening) explained to the Queen that lily of the valley flowers had historically been used as a poison. Elizabeth quickly replied, “I’ve been given two bunches this week. Perhaps they want me dead.”

According to Microsoft News, one of Kate’s most favorite hobbies is photography. Before marrying the Duke of Cambridge, she used to take photos for her family’s mail-order business. One of Prince William’s favorite past times is biking.

It was a family affair during an April 2013 trip to Dumfries House in Scotland. Prince William and Kate were joined by his father Prince Charles, Prince of Wales. The trio stood laughing together as they braved the bitter cold.

Both men could possibly be kings in the near future. During Father’s Day 2020 Kate posted a sweet photo of Charles and William posing together. “He looks positively doting, he loves the picture and was happy for others to see it,” said a family friend to Vanity Fair.

The Duke and Duchess couldn’t stop giggling while listening to some children’s books being read aloud at Canada’s McBride Museum on September 28, 2016. The two were doing a tour of the country and got to visit several Canadian tourist sites.

Kate has to follow strict rules at all times, even when she’s abroad. Fans may come up and ask for her autograph, but she’s forbidden to give it. This is because someone could use her signature to falsify important documents on behalf of the royal family.

Prince William and Kate are usually up for some good old fun. On August 5, 2020 the pair visited Barry, Wales to play some arcade games at Island Leisure Amusement Arcade.

By the looks on their faces, Prince William may have made a silly mistake and Kate is laughing about it. Even though they were playing arcade games, both members of the royal family have to abide by a dress code. These rules can include natural nail polish, brightly-colored dresses, and sheer pantyhose.
