In all fairness the mistake could be easy to make, as the Queen has been known to trade in her famous hats for more casual attire like wellington boots when enjoying time off duty. 

Oh dear! It's needless to say those tourists would have been gutted if they knew they had come face to face with the Queen and didn't ask for a selfie!
