Recently, Queen Elizabeth II was spotted driving near Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, England, and people immediately noticed that she was not wearing a seatbelt. This news comes days after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their exit from the Royal family. According to media reports she was heading to a shoot in the estate.

Netizens impressed with the Queen

Once people noticed that the Queen was not wearing a seatbelt, the jokes and memes from the internet started pouring in, with people saying that perhaps she was not aware that wearing a seatbelt has been required by law in the UK for all drivers since 1983. Some users also pointed out that the Queen does not even have a licence.

Some users went a step further and revealed that the Queen driving without a seatbelt is not new behaviour at all.
