"Never complain, never explain", is an unwritten rule of the British royal family. And no one is as perfect at it as Queen Elizabeth II herself. Out of character in public? Shocking! But a video clip from the 80s Years ago now shows a visibly upset Queen taking on pesky photographers. The scolding Queen can be seen in action above.
Queen Elizabeth II divides the pack of photographers like Moses did the sea
Queen Elizabeth II's video taken at the 1988 Royal Windsor Horse Show, Newsweek reports, has already gone viral on TikTok. It shows the Queen taking on a group of photographers because they are blocking her view. According to the newspaper, the monarch wanted to watch a carriage competition in which her late husband Prince Philip took part. The clip was viewed over 260,000 times and received over 5,000 likes. Most royal fans have never seen the Queen THIS in her 70-year reign.

The TikTok community was particularly amused by the otherwise controlled monarch's wild arm-waving. Comparisons are even made with the biblical Moses, as it almost seems as if the queen, with her energetic gestures, is dividing the crowd of paparazzi as he once divided the sea.
Note: When it comes to her beloved horses, Elizabeth II apparently breaks her never-complain rule after all. So, always have a clear view, otherwise it will be a royal announcement. Or as one TikTok user wrote: "If the Queen says get out of the way, get out of the way!"
