Queen Elizabeth II was almost shot during an early morning walk! An ex-guardsman told a story this week of how he once mistook her for an intruder on palace property, E! Online reports. The majesty reportedly has trouble sleeping and often walks the grounds to tire herself out.
One morning at 3 a.m. while on patrol, he noticed a figure walking in the darkness. “Who’s that?” he shouted. To his surprise, it was the Queen. The guard claims he couldn’t help but blurt out, “Bloody hell, Your Majesty, I nearly shot you!” Could you imagine?!
