...occurred at the opening of the 2012 London Olympics (5:37).

A close second was Queen Elizabeth II jumping out of a helicopter and parachuting into the stadium, but she was disqualified from the competition when it was revealed that a stunt double had done the actual jumping.

Here are Queen Elizabeth and some close associates in 2009 at the dedication of a statue of the Queen Mother.


...or as I like to call the photograph, “We few, we happy few.”

Even Mr. Bean would have had trouble making this group laugh.

Of course the royal party weren't laughing. They were dedicating a statue in memory of The Queen's mother, Prince Charles's grandmother and a national treasure right up to her death. They were remembering someone they had loved. All four of them have displayed healthy senses of humour in the past.
