THE Queen has been spotted in Chiswick as her jubilee celebrations draw ever nearer.
But those looking a bit closer will see Her Majesty is actually a cardboard cutout keeping customers company at Snappy Snaps in Chiswick High Road.
Franchise owner John Fitzgerald said customers have been unexpectedly coming into the store to take pictures of themselves with the Queen replica.
He said: “I thought this would be a fun product to add to my range. We had just finished putting together our display of jubilee gifts and we introduced the cutout to our display, and within minutes customers to the shop started taking pictures of
themselves on their camera phones.
“Since then there has been a constant flow of people coming in. We have even gone so far as to direct people on using our new personalised greetings card machine (to turn the pictures into a card), so we are thanking our queenly cutout for her royal approval.”
