#BBCtrending: The UKIP canvasser's royal resemblance

On the first day of campaigning, a photograph of a woman, who looks like Queen Elizabeth II, handing out flyers in support of the UK Independence Party, has been re-tweeted more than 5,000 times. As the constitutional monarch the Queen is politically neutral, so many people were surprised when a lookalike seemed to be handing out leaflets in Bromley, London.

BBC Trending tracked down the mystery 'royal'.
