LONDON (WTHR) - Meeting royalty can be intimidating, even for adults.

But what a British boy did Wednesday when he met Queen Elizabeth looked like an extraordinary case of nerves.

Nine-year-old Nathan stood stiffly as his parents introduced him to the 92-year-old monarch. He then dropped to his knees and crawled out of the room.

The scene played out as the queen visited Britain's oldest children's charity. She spoke with other foster children and helped a young girl place an ornament on a Christmas tree.
