This has got to be my “Picture of the Day”!
It’s a dilemma facing everyone who knows they’re going to meet royalty but I don’t know what he was thinking when this sniper serving with the Household Cavalry Regiment opted for his work outfit … leaving the Queen looking more than a little perplexed!
Looking like more like Chewbacca from Star Wars than a regular soldier, the crack marksman wore a ‘ghillie suit’, a type of camouflage clothing designed to resemble heavy foliage, leaves and twigs to remain concealed from the enemy. The suit even moves in gusts of wind!
If that wasn’t bad enough though, she doesn’t seem to have noticed that the chap behind her seems to be carrying rather a lot of excess weight in his nether regions!!!
