GLASGOW, Scotland, July 24 (UPI) -- First there was The Royal Tenenbaums; now there's The Royal Photobomb.

Queen Elizabeth was in Scotland Thursday to watch some matches at the Australia Commonwealth Games and was introduced to the Hockeyroos before their game at the Glasgow National Hockey Center.

One of the players on the team, Australian Jayde Taylor, took a selfie with her teammate Brooke Peris.

Taylor lucked out and got a picture of the queen appearing to photobomb the picture in the background.

Taylor then tweeted the photo at Ellen DeGeneres. The hockey player told the Oscars host that, "I think our selfie tops yours!"

The Australian team went on to beat Malaysia 4-0 while the queen watched with husband Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. They stuck around to watch England take on Wales in a later game.
