The Queen Was Nearly Shot By Her Own Guardsmen!

The Queen Was Nearly Shot By Her Own Guardsmen!

The Queen is kind of a badass. She stayed at home during the bombing of London and even drove Jeeps in World War 2!


Most recently, The Queen was taking a stroll around the palace gardens at 3am, as you do. Apparently, one of the Guardsmen was so caught off guard (haha) that he said “Bloody hell, Your Majesty. I nearly shot you.”

The Queen, who is the epitome of grace and giving zero fucks, merely replied with,  “That’s quite all right. Next time I’ll ring through beforehand so you don’t have to shoot me.”

And the badassery doesn’t end with Liz, either. Her son, Prince Charles, once survived an assassination attempt in Sydney, 1994 and looked so unphased by the whole thing it was turned into a gif set.

Zero fucks given by Prince Charles about almost being shot.

His sister, Princess Anne, also shares the family trait. She was once the victim of an attempted kidnapping. Apparently, when the guy pointed his gun at her and told her to get out of the car, she replied with “Not bloody likely” and tried to kick him.

As strange and arguably outdated as it might be to have a monarchy, you’ve got to admit, our Royal family is pretty hardcore.
