Even Queen Elizabeth II can occasionally walk among the public and avoid detection, at least according to an account from her former protection officer Richard Griffin.

Mr Griffin recalled, at a recent talk, a time when the monarch was approached by a group of American tourists while on a walk near the Balmoral Estate in Aberdeenshire.

The group asked the Queen, who was wearing a headscarf and tweed coat, if she lived in the area, to which she responded simply by saying she had a house close-by. “Have you ever met the Queen?” they asked.

“No,” she apparently replied, before pointing at the policeman and adding: “But he has.”

The group were still none the wiser and left without realising whose company they had just shared.

Reminds me of an old story about Michael Caine and Cary Grant:

Another story is told by his fellow Briton, Michael Caine. The two actors were standing in the lobby of the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, Caine remembers, when a stout lady came charging up and demanded Caine's autograph, incredibly not recognizing Grant. After getting it, she said she had been waiting for three days in the hotel lobby, hoping to spot some movie stars. "I think it's shocking that more stars don't come by," she said, and then turned to Grant: "Don't you?" Caine recalls that Grant was speechless. For once, his timing had failed him.
