The young man, named Liam Warriner, dropped his pants and placed an Australian flag in between his buttocks' cheeks for the Queen to see as her motorcade made its way from Brisbane Airport.
In an interview with the The Sun
(no pun intended), Warriner claims he mooned her on a dare proposed by his co-workers as he was unloading shipping containers. He was quoted as saying:
"You see it on TV all the time, you see it in movies, it's accepted in PG rated programming these days, but yet it's an offence to the Queen."
Warriner was detained by police for his actions and was later released on bail. He is set to appear in court this Friday.
According to Breitbart
, this is the first visit that the Queen has made to the region since devastating floods ravaged the area back in January, killing more than 30 people.
The British Monarchy is generally well-received in Australia, which is a former colony of Great Britain. Some, however, feel that the country should cut its ties to the monarchy and become an independent republic.
