WATCH: Queen Elizabeth II Walks Behind BBC Anchors During Live Broadcast

By Alex Weprin Comment

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II formally opened the BBC’s new broadcasting house in London today. She opened the new headquarters with a declaration on BBC Radio 4.

While on a tour of the newsroom, the Queen happened to pop up behind a pair of presenters delivering a live newscast. They turned around in their chairs and gave her a bow, as the newsroom applauded.


The BBC started broadcasting from the new headquarters in January, and completed the move in March.
