Being the queen apparently doesn't exempt one from being what we all are at times: an impatient driver.

Queen Elizabeth was driving to church through the park leading out of Windsor Castle. And she just couldn't pause for a family that was out for a Sunday stroll and blocking her way

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. Being queen apparently doesn't exempt one from being what we all are at times, an impatient driver. Queen Elizabeth was driving to church through the park leading out of Windsor Castle, and she just couldn't pause for a family out for a Sunday stroll blocking her way. So, reports the Telegraph, the queen veered onto the grass. Though, perhaps unlike the rest of us, the queen smiled and waved as she passed the startled family. It's MORNING EDITION.
