Queen Elizabeth dazed a young boy so much that he dropped to his knees and scurried out of sight
Queen Elizabeth's presence was a bit too much for one nine-year-old to handle. Instead, he crawled away from the entire situation.
On Wednesday, the Queen visited Coram, the oldest children's charity in the UK. She was there to open a new national centre dubbed the Queen Elizabeth II Centre.
The new centre was built to honor 350 years since Thomas Coram, the founder of the charity was born. Coram campaigned for 17 years toward the cause before a Royal Charter was finally issued in 1739.

The charity aims at bettering the lives of children, especially those who are more vulnerable than others. It also takes care of abandoned babies.
Among the many children that it has helped is Nathan Grant. The nine-year-old stood with several others in a room waiting to greet the queen. The clip of his reaction is found below.

But when the monarch turned to face Grant, the little boy got down to the floor and scurried away on all fours. A loud, "Bye!" was heard as he made his exit through a nearby door.
It appeared that the training from Grant's mother Carrie was all for naught. Following her son's unexpected departure, she said:
"That's his version of a bow."

The former British TV presenter had the entire room laughing with her clever comment. The Queen herself smiled as she went on to greet others.
The 92-year-old was donned in a vibrant blue coat and matching hat for the occasion. But just the night before, her ensemble was a bit more formal.
For the Diplomatic Corps Reception on Tuesday night, the Queen joined Duchess Camilla and Kate Middleton in much more dazzling wear.
All three ladies showed up to the white tie event wearing dramatic tiaras and stunning dresses. The leading royal wore her favorite piece, the Queen Mary Girls of Great Britain and Ireland tiara.

Middleton also wore her popular Lovers Knot Tiara, while Duchess Camilla was donned in her Greville Tiara. All three women wore long gowns and accessorized with pearl or diamond jewelry.
In addition, the Queen had on a pair of white gloves as she greeted ambassadors during the night. We wonder how little Grant would have reacted if he witnessed the Queen wearing her crown.
