THE Queen is well known for her good sense of humor and was left with a fit of the giggles after Mike Tindall’s gag at Ascot back in 2019.
The Rugby star, who is married to the monarch’s granddaughter Zara Tindall, was seen laughing as he showed her the contents of his hat.
In a video Mike was seen showing the Queen what appeared to be a miniature top hat, which was made entirely of chocolate.
Speaking to the Telegraph at the time, the dad-of-two said: “It is a chocolate hat that I am taking home for my daughter Mia.
“I was given it at lunch but it is really annoying to store in a pocket so I decided to put it in my top hat instead.”
Asked whether the Queen had found the gesture funny, he said, “They are your words, not mine!"

The monarch is well known for her love of racing and is said to read the Racing Post over breakfast every morning.
And she even owns horses herself, including Pall Mall that won the classic 2000 Guineas in 1958. More recently, her racehorse Estimate won the Doncaster Cup in 2014.
