The 91-year-old monarch is currently on holiday at her Scottish residence of Balmoral, and she came into contact with a mischievous Shetland pony, Cruachan IV, but managed to see the funny side of the meeting.

According to Aberdeen's Evening Express newspaper, the equine made a noise and the queen said: "Oh, we know where you are."

Several people chuckled during the exchange, and the queen had a wide grin on her face.

Elizabeth came face-to-face with Cruachan IV again while meeting 2nd Battalion Royal Highland Fusiliers, who count the pony as their mascot.

In 2014, the horse tried to bite the queen but she managed to avoid any injury, and Cruachan IV seems to have calmed down now.

Elizabeth and Cruachan's reunification comes just a month after she had to tell another naughty pony off when he tried to eat her flowers.

The queen was forced to tell the horse to "go away" when he attempted to whip the heads off her flowers while she was talking to fans during her visit to Stirling Castle in Scotland.

She then told the pony's minder: "They always try to eat the flowers."

The queen is known to be a big fan of race horses and owns many.

She also attends the Royal Ascot race meeting every year, and in 2013 she was named Owner of the Year at the Racehorse Owners Association Awards.

It came after her horse Estimate won the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot, the first time a reigning sovereign had won the prize in the race's 207-year history.
