Everything You Want To Know About The Time Queen Met The Queen In 1974 (And Everyone Believed It)

Queen, the group that would give us "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "We Will Rock You," met the Queen in 1974 -- there's a picture to prove it. It's Queen with Queen Elizabeth II -- but is this real life, or is it fantasy? The photo became an internet sensation and obsession. You just don't see the Queen hanging with rock stars -- sure, she might shake the hand of Sir Mick or Sir Paul at an event, but a group shot with the whole band -- even the drummer? That's rather fannish of the Queen, isn't it... and rather fannish of Queen as well.

Here’s the thing, that’s not the Queen. Even though people are convinced that she stopped for a photo opportunity with the band, that’s just not the case. Some people believe that it’s not even a real person and that it’s actually a wax figure. While the copyright behind the photo provides some insight into the story, just how this group came together is a mystery.
