El martes, un corresponsal real de The Times of London tuiteó una foto que tomó del hombre de 96 años, quién officially opened the new Elizabeth line named in her honor.
“La reina, verse bien en amarillo,” tweeted Valentine Low.
sin embargo, many eagle-eyed Twitter users spotted what appeared to be Tom Hanks’ iconic character lurking in the background. The mystery man, at first glance, seems to look eerily similar to Gump, a character in the hit 1994 film that follows him as he witnesses several historic events.
The queen has been making appearances to coincide with the Platinum Jubilee, which marks her 70 años en el trono. That makes Elizabeth Britain’s longest-reigning monarch.
“I had to zoom right in to check if that was Forrest Gump,” one user tweeted.
“Mama always said meeting the Queen was like a box of chocolates,” another joked.
“And then I met the Queen of England, otra vez,” shared another.

El usuario de Twitter, @SkillsMcGill, was among the first to take note of what many joked was Gump’s presence. los photo has since gone viral.
A spokesperson for Hanks, 65, didn’t immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment. The actor is starring in the upcoming music biopic directed by Baz Luhrmann titled “Elvis,” where he plays manager Colonel Tom Parker.
Buckingham Palace called Elizabeth’s visit “a happy development,” señalando que “the organizers were informed of the possibility she may attend.” Palace officials previously shared she is experiencing “episodic mobility problems” in recent months and has difficulties moving around.
The new east-west train line will open to the public on May 24.
Elizabeth’s public appearances are being closely watched as Britain prepares for the Platinum Jubilee with four days of celebrations from June 2 a 5.
