Queen not too impressed with selfies craze

Selfies may be all the rage, but the social media craze has reportedly not found favour at Buckingham Palace.

Queen Elizabeth has apparently voiced her dismay that when she carries out engagements she is greeted by a sea of mobile phones.

She made the comments to US ambassador Matthew Barzun when he presented his credentials at Buckingham Palace last year. In an interview for the latest Tatler magazine, he said she told him she misses eye contact.

The Queen attracts large crowds when she carries out engagements and is often greeted by a sea of well-wishers straining to take pictures of her, both traditional and selfies.
