Shoppers in Bromley, South London, thought they witnessed a rare political act by a reigning Monarch, when a lookalike of HM The Queen was seen handing out UKIP leaflets. To make it all the more confusing Prince Philip’s double was pictured behind her.
Their has been no word on whether this is a UKIP stunt or if the lookalike is a genuine UKIP supporter but it certainly sent Twitter mad. Thousands of people retweeted the original picture:
