GLASGOW, SCOTLAND (CNN) - A pair of Australian hockey players were "victims" of a royal photobombing Thursday.

Queen Elizabeth popped up in the background of Jayde Taylor and Brooke Peris' selfie. The pair got the well-timed shot of the British monarch at the Commonwealth Games held in Glasgow.

They admitted they knew Her Royal Highness was in the background when they took it.

The photo has been retweeted thousands of times and encouraged copycat attempts.

It also appeared on the front page of the British newspaper The Times.
