Royal blush: The Queen photobombs the Hockeyroos selfie. Photo: TwitterFull coverage: Commonwealth GamesMedal tallyDay-by-day schedule
Australian hockey player Jayde Taylor’s selfie has quickly become a worldwide social media phenomenon after Queen Elizabeth inadvertently photobombed the picture.
Taylor and teammate Brooke Peris took the picture before their opening match of the Commonwealth Games against Malaysia, which the Hockeyroos won 4-0, at the Glasgow National Hockey Centre.
Prior to the match, the Queen was introduced to the players.
Taylor wrote on her Twitter post: “Ahhh The Queen photo-bombed our selfie!! #royalty #sheevensmiled #amazing”
She later tweeted a message to @TheEllenShow “I think our selfie tops yours! #queenselfie #queenphotobomb #hockeyroos #callme”
It was a light-hearted moment before a match played with heavy hearts. Players wore black armbands in the wake of last week’s Malaysia Airlines disaster.
Australia proved far too classy for the Asian minnows and the margin could’ve been greater were it not for defiant goalkeeper Farah Ayuni Yahya.
Jodie Kenny opened the scoring after seven minutes off a penalty corner, the only set piece of the game to yield a Hockeyroos goal.
Kellie White doubled the lead in the 20th minute before Georgina Parker found the back of the net in the 30th and 49th minutes to complete the emphatic triumph.
