The Queen has once again come face-to-face with the Shetland pony who bit her bouquet of flowers in Scotland last year.

And this time, the animal decided to defecate right in front of the 92-year-old Monarch, leaving her reaching for her glove to block her nose from the smell.

The Queen was inspecting the Royal Regiment outside the gates of Balmoral Castle yesterday when the adorable pony, called Cruachan IV, relieved himself.

Within moments, the Queen was pictured bowing her head and bringing her glove to her nose as the smell obviously got too much for her.

Last year, Cruachan IV showed off his cheeky personality when he began to munch on the Queen’s bunch of flowers when she was on a visit of Stirling Castle.

However, instead of looking annoyed at the pony, the Queen was seen smiling, showing off how much she loves to be around the animals.

Every summer, the Queen takes up residence at Balmoral Castle and this year is no different.

It’s been reported that Prince Harry and his new wife, Meghan Markle, will stop by later this month to spend some time with the prince’s grandmother.

Then the newyleds will head off on their overseas trip of New Zealand, Fiji and Australia, where they will officially open the Invictus Games.
