Her Majesty is quite the jokester!

Queen Elizabeth II had a hilarious comeback when a politician asked how she was during her first public appearance since the surprising Brexit result last week.

Northern Irish politician Martin McGuiness saw her on Monday at Hillsborough Castle in Belfast and greeted her with “Hello! Are you well?”
“Thank you very much,” she responded with a cheeky grin. “I’m still alive!”
McGuiness, Deputy First Minister in Northern Ireland, tried to keep the conversation flowing by saying “Nice to see you again,” to which Her Majesty replied “Ah, we’ve been quite busy. There’s been quite a lot going on.”

McGuiness agreed, but despite the instability the UK is facing, the Queen chose to dodge the subject and keep the convo to something safe while the cameras were rolling.
“I've had two birthdays, so we've been quite busy,” she replied.
Smooth move, Queenie.
