She was dressed in tweeds and wore a headscarf when she met the tourist group.

Unaware of who she was, they started a conversation and asked her if she lived in the area where she replied that she indeed had a house nearby.

They then wondered if she had ever met the queen herself.

She didn't want to reveal who she enjoyed a private joke while she went to Mr. Griffin gestured and said: & # 39; No, but this policeman did. & # 39;

Griffin has been working closely with the royal family for more than 30 years.

Speaking to the Times, he said the group went on after a short while and was not aware of its true identity.
