Unexpected monarch in bagging area? Queen pops down to Sainsbury's

Queen at Sainsbury's

The Queen made the comments during a trip to a pop-up exhibition in Covent Garden, central London, which replicated elements from one of Sainsbury's original stores to mark the chain's 150th anniversary. The 93-year-old monarch dropped in Sainsbury's grocery store to celebrate 150 years of service.

And she was shown a new shopping app, which she called "an interesting tool".

She also met members of staff and cut a commemorative birthday cake.

"Then using payment information that's already been stored on their phone to complete the transaction".

The helper smiled before replying: "Well, you can always cheat but with the weighing scales we've got that should prevent certain items from being undetected".

The Queen then, smirking, hilariously butted in at one point and asked: "You can't trick it then?"

"'And you can't trick it? You can't cheat it?". "(Asking for a friend, obviously!) #Sainsburys150".

Michigan Hires Juwan Howard As Head Coach
Juwan Howard is reportedly set to return to campus to replace John Beilein's as the men's basketball coach. He has never been a head coach at any level, aside from coaching the Heat's summer league team in 2016.

Earlier this month, the Queen sought to raise her online presence by recruiting a social media manager.

One person said: "I laughed so hard watching this", while another wrote: "Lovely".

Upon arrival, the monarch was greeted by Lord and Lady Sainsbury, who gave her a tour of the recreation, which takes visitors through its history - from the development of rationing to the introduction of self-service shopping.

A third joked: "Do you think she's planning a bit of shopping and "trying to cheat"?!"

The Queen and Kate have a very close relationship, and she was there to support the duchess at her big event on Monday.

Her Majesty recently became a great-grandmother for the eighth time, following the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor on May 6.

She smiled happily as she was shown around the garden, which was created to promote the wellbeing benefits of getting outdoors.
