Young boy becomes totally overwhelmed after meeting the Queen, crawls for exit

A young boy was so overwhelmed when meeting Britain's Queen Elizabeth II that he dropped to the floor and crawled towards the nearest exit.

The Queen was visiting Coram, the UK's oldest children's charity, in London overnight.

Former "Fame Academy" judges David and Carrie Grant and their adopted son, nine-year-old Nathan, were introduced to the monarch at the centre.

Upon being introduced to the Queen, the clearly overwhelmed boy dropped down on his hands and knees and crawled towards the nearest exit, shouting "bye".

She also met eight-year-old Lewis during the visit, who was adopted by a foster family exactly a year ago through TV show "Finding Me A Family".

He got all shy as he asked her which of the countries she had visited she liked the most.

Later during the visit, the Queen came to the aid of a young girl, who struggled to place an ornament on a Christmas tree outside Coram.

The Queen was visiting the charity ahead of the opening of The Queen Elizabeth II Centre for children.

The centre was built to celebrate the 350th anniversary of the birth of the founder of the charity, Thomas Coram.

Based where once The Foundling Hospital stood, Coram has been helping vulnerable children since it gained the Royal Charter in 1739.
