Those who tuned in to watch from the comfort of their living rooms on Friday evening may have noticed the Queen-like fan, who everybody is dubbing a doppelgänger of Her Royal Highness.

She got herself right in the thick of it ready for a set from Robert Plant, best known as the frontman of Led Zeppelin. He was joined by bluegrass-country singer Alison Krauss.

The fan had her hood up and shades on, in what viewers think was the Queen's attempt not to be spotted.

Adding to the rumours online, one fan said: "The Queen has turned up at Glastonbury to watch Robert Plant. That disguise is fooling nobody."

"FFS lol God save the Queen," another added.

Meanwhile, others are convinced the fan is actually Princess Anne, though we can't imagine it's exactly her sort of scene either...

The 20-year-old put on a typically high-energy show on Friday as she became the youngest star to headline the festival.

But amid her spirited performance, Eilish took time in the middle of her set to confess: "Today is a dark day for women in America. It's all I'm able to say about it. I can't bear to think about it."
