This is every mother’s nightmare.
On Thursday, two-year-old Alfie Lunn was tasked with the job to politely present Queen Elizabeth II with flowers right after her unveiling of a new war memorial in London. Sadly for the toddler’s momma, things did not go according to plan.
Rather than quietly hand over the bouquet, the tiny tot went into full meltdown mode — and the British monarch witnessed the whole thing. HIGHlarious!
But, being seasoned vets at dealing with the public, the Queen and her husband, Prince Philip, were totally unbothered by the scene. In fact, the Duke of Edinburgh was noticeably smiling as little Alfie squirmed out of his mother’s arms.
According to the boy’s mom, Corporal Michele Lunn, Prince William‘s grandmother was “very understanding.”
“She thanked us. She asked [Alfie’s father] when he last got back from tour, and thanked Alfie for the flowers. We were trying to prevent Alfie from pulling everything off us.”
Awwwwww. The Lunn family was selected to attend the Horse Guards Parade and Service of Dedication because of their time served in the armed forces. Both Mr. and Mrs. Lunn have served in Afghanistan, with Sergeant Mark Lunn also having served in Iraq.

Thankfully, Alfie mellowed out a bit before meeting the British Prime Minister, named Theresa May. After chatting with the boy, Miz May commented:
“He does look very smart. Perhaps that’s what’s making him grumpy?”
LOLz! Kids will be kids.
This may be one of our favorite moments from 2017!
