Viewers couldn't believe their eyes when the monarch so casually brushed off host Alan Titchmarsh's heartfelt praise. Watch the clip here:
The TV presenter told crowds on Sunday night: "For 70 years, there has been one constant heartbeat of this nation. And that heart belongs to Her Majesty the Queen."
And although he was met with a round of applause, Queen Elizabeth simply shrugged and appeared to nod in agreement with Alan's sentiment.
The brief clip immediately took the internet by a storm, becoming an instant meme.
Reacting to the clip, one viewer tweeted: "The Queen always seems like she would be a right laugh."
A second wrote: "Bye she’s such a legend I love her."
A third added: "We need/deserve a shrugging Queen emoji."
And a fourth commented: "That shrug is absolutely brilliant."

"The Queen Shrug will officially be my mood setting from now on," wrote a fifth.
Other viewers predicted that the Queen's nonchalant shrug would become a meme in no time.
"I think this clip is going to foster a LOT of memes," suggested one Twitter user.

"That Queen shrug will be a solid meme before dawn," wrote another.
"You know when you see something live and you just know it’s going to be a meme forever. Queen’s reaction is me to everything" a third added.
The event marked not only the beginning of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations, but also the final night of the Royal Windsor Horse Show.
After cancelling a number of public appearances in recent weeks, attendees cheered when the monarch appeared in the royal box.
The Platinum Jubilee Weekend will officially kick off on Thursday 2 June with the Queen's birthday parade and Trooping of the Colour.
Celebrations will continue through the weekend, wrapping up on Sunday, 5 June with the Big Jubilee Lunch across the nation, and the Platinum Jubilee Pageant in London.
