THE QUEEN was outed as a Millwall fan as she watched their game against Swansea in full kit.
A cardboard cut out of Her Majesty was spotted in the crowd at the New Den on Tuesday night – decked out in a Lions shirt.
With games being played behind closed doors during the coronavirus pandemic a host of teams from both the Premier League and Championship have asked fans to submit pictures of themselves to be turned into personalised cut-outs in the stands.
The idea was intended to allow supporters to still feel involved in matches.
But many have been inventive, shelling out for famous faces to cheers their teams on.
And her Majesty is the latest to be seen looking in from the stands during the televised game in South East London.
Leeds United removed a cardboard cut-out of terrorist Osama Bin Laden after a fan paid for it to be placed at Elland Road for last weekend’s game against Fulham.
Meanwhile, Tiger King chief and Carole Baskin’s No1 rival Joe Exotic was also spotted watching Leeds’ promotion charge.
Fans have been given the opportunity to pay £25 to have a cardboard cut out of themselves while matches are being played behind-closed-doors.
And one supporter spotted the opportunity to involve the imprisoned Netflix star for their crucial weekend victory over the Cottagers.
While one brave Nottingham Forest fan had Roy Keane immortalised at the City Ground on Sunday – with the Irishman holding a Mr Whippy.
The Manchester United legend first made his name in England at Forest, starring for Brian Clough for three years before his big move to Old Trafford.
Keane, who joined the club from Irish side Cobh Ramblers in 1990, played more than 150 games for Forest and won the Full Members’ Cup in 1992.
As well as Keane, Forest legends Stuart Pearce and Stan Collymore were included – as well as a couple of more quirky entries.
Prince Harry, an Arsenal fan, and Meghan Markle have a seat in the ground, as well as Buzz Lightyear.
Where’s Wally also had a seat, but wasn’t very well hidden and was spotted by a photographer.
