The Queen may be one of the world's most famous women thanks to her hard work and dedication to her title.
But often, during her official engagements, Her Majesty likes to show off her humorous side.
It's nice to know that she can enjoy herself on these rare occasions when she is joined by her family and other good friends.
Ahead of the 70th anniversary of her accession to the throne on Sunday 6 February 2022, HELLO! has rounded up the Queen's funniest moments, from seeing the monarch in fits of giggles with her eldest son, Prince Charles, to sharing a laugh with her granddaughter-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge.
The Queen and her grandson, Prince Harry, have a close bond and the pair were spotted laughing together at Lady Gabriella Windsor and Thomas Kingston's wedding in Windsor in 2019. The Duke had just become a father after the birth of baby Archie.

The Duchess of Sussex, June 2018
One month after officially joining the royal family, Meghan carried out her first joint engagement with the Queen in Cheshire. While many would feel incredibly nervous performing the task, Meghan showed her relaxed and confident nature as she chatted and joked with Her Majesty. Meghan has previously opened up about how welcoming Harry's grandmother has been to her.
Speaking in their first TV interview as an engaged couple, she said: "It's incredible, I think, you know, to be able to meet her through his lens, not just with his honour and respect for her as the monarch, but the love that he has for her as his grandmother, all of those layers have been so important for me so that when I met her I had such a deep understanding and of course incredible respect for being able to have that time with her. And she's an incredible woman."
