Queen makes surprising appearance at football match as she watches from the stands

Dressed in a Lions shirt, the Queen was outed as a Millwall supporter as she watched the action with a beaming smile. Prince William, her grandson, is known as a fan of the game and before lockdown was regularly spotted at Villa Park cheering on Aston Villa. A cardboard cutout of Her Majesty was placed amongst fans to fill the empty space in the stands for the rest of remaining fixtures.

The aim of the cardboard cutouts was intended to allow supporters to still feel involved in matches, plotting their faces in the terraces.

The coronavirus pandemic has forced all games behind closed doors, with some leagues, including League One and League two cancelling the remainder of fixtures altogether.

However, fans have taken advantage of the new addition to the stadium.

One supporter paid for a photo of Osama Bin Laden at a Leeds United match.

Whilst Tiger King star Joe Exotic was also placed amongst cardboard fans.

Leeds United removed the offensive cutout of Osama Bin Laden after a supporter paid for the showcase.

The image received plenty of backlash from social media.

Comedian David Baddiel condemned the fans’ decision to pay for the submission.

Baddiel tweeted: “What’s amazing about this is that someone at Leeds is educated enough to realise that even a fake crowd should not be entirely white, but not educated enough to know who Osama Bin Laden is.”

One supporter was furious that he had placed next to Bin Laden.

WeAllLoveLeed posted: “Holy s*** I’m next to Bin Laden.”

Whilst another added: “They’ve put me next to Bin Laden!!!”

A club spokesperson revealed to the Mirror the image has been removed.

They added that “checks are in place to ensure there are no more offensive images.”

Fans were offered the chance to have their face in the ground by several clubs.

A supporter can pay £25 to have a cardboard cut out of themselves at the game.

Colourful creations have been dotted all over grounds in the country.

One Nottingham Forest fan added an image of Roy Keane to the City Ground – with the Sky pundit holding an ice cream.

The former Manchester United star broke through the ranks at Nottingham Forest under Brian Clough before he swapped the Reds for Manchester.
