That Time Badass Queen Elizabeth II Gave Saudi Arabia's King a Lesson in Power


Badass Queen Elizabeth II Gave Saudi Arabia King a Lesson in Power meme Imgur

When the Saudi King visited Balmoral, the vast royal estate in Scotland and got offered a tour, Queen climbed into the driving seat, turned the ignition and drove off. Women are not—yet—allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia, and Abdullah was not used to being driven by a woman, let alone a queen. His nervousness only increased as the queen, an Army driver in wartime, accelerated the Land Rover along the narrow Scottish estate roads, talking all the time. Through his interpreter, the Crown Prince implored the Queen to slow down and concentrate on the road ahead.
