Months after dining at a pub with her friends, Queen Elizabeth II has gone grocery shopping on her way to an event. The UK monarch visited a Waitrose grocery store on Thursday with husband Prince Philip, as well as her son Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, before attending an unveiling of the statue of her mother.

The 90-year-old ruler made a scheduled stop at the Waitrose store in Poundbury in Dorset just before the unveiling of the stature of her mother in Queen Mother Square. The Queen browsed the aisles as she met with the grocery staff, inspecting local products and the automated self-checkout counters.

According to those present, the Queen took time checking out the cheese aisle and the local West Country produce. It’s unclear if she or any of her companions bought something from the grocery store.

The royal group later on visited a pub in the area. Later on, they attended the unveiling of the statue of the Queen Mother, who died in 2002.

It may be rare to see the Queen visiting places where ordinary folks go to, but it’s not the first time the monarch has gone to a local hangout. In July, he was seen enjoying a rare night out at a Scottish pub in Edinburgh with her companions.
