Selfies are nothing new, so for one to captivate the Internet it needs something extra — like the Queen of England photobombing the background.

Australian field hockey player Jayde Taylor achieved instant selfie fame when royalty wandered into the frame of Taylor’s photo opp with a “Hockeyroos” teammate.

Taylor took the photo at the Glasgow National Hockey Centre before the Australian team’s 4-0 victory over Malaysia during  the Commonwealth Games.

Queen Elizabeth II, who appears to be a veteran photobomber, flashed an adorable smile in the background.

Taylor tweeted the royal selfie with the message: “Ahhh The Queen photo-bombed our selfie!! #royalty #sheevensmiled #amazing.”

After it was retweeted and favorited thousands of times, Taylor of course tweeted Ellen, whose Oscars selfie was seen by millions: “@TheEllenShow “I think our selfie tops yours! #queenselfie #queenphotobomb #hockeyroos #callme.”
