The Queen remained gracious as a musician's scarf blew in her face at the Royal Windsor Cup Polo match on Sunday.

Actress Gillian Anderson, who was among the guests in the royal box at the polo, could not hide her shock as she saw the end of Yoshiki’s scarf come into contact with the monarch during a gust of wind.

The musician, who is leader of rock group X Japan, also appeared taken aback and was open-mouthed, while the Queen carried on as usual to make a presentation at the Royal Windsor Cup.

The Queen was seen smiling and chatting to some of the winners and guests at the Guards Polo Club in Windsor Great Park, Surrey.

The royal, who is known for her passion for horses, was pictured sitting at the front of the royal box and watching intently as carriage drivers paraded past.

The event was sponsored by Japanese company Out-Sourcing Inc, and described on the polo club’s website as a blend of "of fast-paced sport, fine dining" and "a sprinkling of Hollywood glamour".

The Queen isn't phased at all. She has seen it all in her long life.

Royal fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Yoskiki's scarf blunder.

One person said: "The wind doesn't pay any attention to protocol. The guests are horrified as the wind whips a scarf in the Queen's face. The Queen isn't phased at all. She has seen it all in her long life.

"A scarf slapping her in the face at the Windsor Cup polo isn't any big deal."

Another joked: "Well at least it was a designer scarf... Queen didn't even flinch."
