A little girl was accidentally smacked in the face by an army officer shortly after giving Queen Elizabeth II flowers … and the whole thing was caught on video.
On Thursday, the queen arrived to Wales to attend an event at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. But before going to the event, she had to be welcomed traditional style with flowers … and 6-year old Marie Gregory was given the privilege to do the honors.
But as soon as Marie completed her task and the queen turned towards her waiting car, a lance corporal standing at attention suddenly swiped his hand for a big salute, ultimately smacking the nearby girl so hard that her bonnet flew off her head. But no worries, as the girl took the beating well.
The corporal later apologized to the girl.
