Martedì, un corrispondente reale del Times di Londra ha twittato una foto che ha scattato al 96enne, chi officially opened the new Elizabeth line named in her honor.
“La regina, bello in giallo,” tweeted Valentine Low.
tuttavia, many eagle-eyed Twitter users spotted what appeared to be Tom Hanks’ iconic character lurking in the background. The mystery man, a prima vista, 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 anni sul 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,” ha scherzato un altro.
“And then I met the Queen of England, ancora,” shared another.

Buckingham Palace called Elizabeth’s visit “a happy development,” notandolo “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.
