Here ye, here ye ... The Queen hath smiled ... in a photobomb!!!

Queen Elizabeth II was at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in Scotland (think Olympics but smaller) ... when she snuck up on a selfie being taken by 2 female hockey players from Australia.  

The selfiers -- Jayde Taylor and Brooke Peris -- immediately knew they snapped gold and posted the pic to Instagram with the caption, "Aaaahhh the Queen photo-bombed our selfie @chookieperis3 #royalty #queenie #onceinalifetime @auscomgames"

Afterward, the girls told the media the Queen was not in on the plot -- explaining they had tried to catch her in the background of a selfie ... and when Her Majesty realized what was going on, she hammed it up and flashed some pearly whites for the pic. 

The girls say the Queen then approached them to talk sports -- "She asked us a bit about the pitch, how we were going and told us to enjoy our time here. She was lovely. Really, really lovely."
