VIDEO: This little girl gave the Queen flowers - and then got hit in the head

Poor Maisie Gregory - it was supposed to be her big day, off to meet the Queen at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium and dressed in traditional Welsh costume.

The six-year-old acquitted herself well, shyly handing Queen Elizabeth a posy of flowers. And then, as the Queen exited the building, Maisie found herself at the wrong end of a salute from a nearby guard.

Oh dear.

Wales Online reported that the soldier immediately turned to the little girl to apologise and Maisie was fine.

But probably a little peeved.
