The United Kingdom, and much of the world, is currently mourning the loss of Queen Elizabeth II. Britain’s longest-serving monarch passed away last week at the age of 96 and a flood of tributes have since poured from various corners of social media. A number of notable celebrities have also joined the chorus of praises for the late royal, including Simon Pegg. The Mission: Impossible star paid his respects to the queen of England by fondly sharing a story, which involves her once wearing 3-D glasses. 

It’s been interesting to hear various stars open up about their encounters with Elizabeth II during her time on this earth, and Simon Pegg may have one of the most unique tales to tell. The actor reflected on their meeting by sharing an Instagram post, which included a photo of their encounter. As the actor explained in his caption, he crossed paths with her during the UK premiere of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (streamable using a Disney+ subscription) in 2010. He went on to say that their during their meeting, he thought he’d “broken” the beloved leader: 

When I got to meet her at the royal gala premiere of the third Narnia movie back in 2010, she took an age to start speaking to me. She looked at me, smiling for a long time and I thought I had broken her, until she eventually asked me what character I played in the film.
