BBC NEWS | UK | Queen learns of childhood 'scrum'

An exuberant Australian rugby player tossed the Queen into the air when she was a child sparking "mild panic" among those watching, it has emerged.

The player apparently had a long lunch before a function where Princess Elizabeth, then just a toddler, encountered him and was sent flying.

Pics 11.11.2008

Prince Philip is pictured on the deck of the ship 'Queen Elizabeth 2' in Southampton,
on November 11, 2008. One of the world's most famous cruise ships, the Queen
Elizabeth 2, briefly ran aground Tuesday before arriving in its home port for the last
time, its owners said. The 70,000-ton vessel ran onto a sandbank as it approached
Southampton on England's south coast, where it was paying its final call before heading
to Dubai where it will become a floating hotel.

Thanks for the pics iceflower. What a funny coincidence that HM gives the OBE to the famous rugby player Lawrence Dallaglio only one day after the "revelation" that she was once tossed into the air by another representative of the sport when she was just a toddler

Well, we know that the title of the movie doesn't refer to these two!
