Earlier this week, Queen Elizabeth II attended the State Opening of Parliament. And it wasn't merely her outfit that was a major talking point on Twitter.

Her Majesty was reported to West Yorkshire police after one beady-eyed viewer noticed that the Queen had forgotten to wear her seatbelt, as she travelled to the prestigious ceremony.

Tom Donohoe, who works for West Yorkshire Police, commented: "I cannot stress enough that the 999 number is for emergencies only."

Under UK law, it is of course compulsory to wear a seat belt at all times but the Queen is immune from any civil or criminal proceedings.

But for those worried about the Her Majesty's safety, a statement on the British Monarchy website reads: "The Queen is careful to ensure that all her activities in her personal capacity are carried out in strict accordance with the law."
