Queen on aisle 7!
Queen Elizabeth found herself in an unlikely place on Thursday: the grocery store.
And no, she wasn’t stocking up on Lipton’s finest or making an emergency Doritos run. The monarch paid a visit to a supermarket in Poundbury to check out local products and meet the staff.
The royal family was on hand to open the new district center, Queen Mother Square, where she unveiled a statue of her mother by sculptor Philip Jackson.
The entire visit was a sight to behold! It began with her royal entrance. The Queen, wearing a powder blue coat and matching hat, looked immediately skeptical of her new surroundings.
The quizzical looks continued as she wandered up and down the aisles.
She spent some time eyeing the products lining the shelves. (She was reportedly intrigued by the array of cheeses at the specialty cheese counter!)
And she looked a little unsure in the checkout aisle.
But she wasn’t the only one — Philip, Charles and Camilla appeared out of their element as they inspected some local products.
In true royal form, she wrapped up her supermarket stay with a winning smile — and a newfound appreciation for the cheese counter!
