The Queen in jeans?

The Queen in jeans?

A look-a-like of Queen Elizabeth II has stepped up to support a charity event, by posing as Her Royal Highness in a variety of funny photos.

The photoshoot, which sees 'the Queen' trying on jeans and then wearing them around the palace - complete with corgi companions - was staged to mark Jeans for Genes Day 2015, which falls on Friday 18th September.



The photographer behind the shoot, Alison Jackson, is famed for her images featuring look-a-likes from the Royal Family.

"I was honoured to be asked to be part of and photograph the Queen lookalike in this years Jeans for Genes shoot," she said. "We had great fun taking her out in London. The public weren't used to seeing 'their' Queen in jeans! Jeans for Genes is such a wonderful charity raising funds for genetic disorders - a cause very much close to my heart. Like everyone else I'll be wearing my jeans on Friday 18th September."

The charity event, which is now in its 20th year, is celebrated across the country as people don their jeans for the day, and make a donation.

What do you think of the photos? All for a good cause, or an undignified use of the Queen's likeness? Let us know in the comments.
