See reasons the Queen of England was reported to UK police

The Queen has been reported to the police for not wearing a seatbelt while driving to the State Opening of Parliament.

West Yorkshire Police confirmed in a tweet someone had called 999 saying the monarch was not strapped in.

The Queen travelled to Westminster alongside Prince Charles to deliver the Queen’s Speech.

The law regarding seatbelts says: “You must wear a seatbelt if one is fitted in the seat you are using.”

Those found flouting the law can be fined £500 for not wearing a seatbelt.

However, criminal proceedings cannot be taken against the Queen in UK law and a spokesman said it would not comment on the complaint.

Tom Donohoe, of West Yorkshire Police, said: “I cannot stress enough that the 999 number is for emergencies only.”

Not only did she not wear a seatbelt, the Queen also did not wear a crown owing to the fact there was not enough time for a proper rehearsal and she instead wore ‘day dress’ for the first time since 1974.

The monarch’s choice of headgear raised eyebrows on social media on Thursday with theories her blue hat was a subtle show of support for the EU.
