Step one: helicopter everywhere.

Queen Elizabeth II may be 92 years old, but she's still cooler, hipper, and more badass than the rest of us. And don't you forget it.

Earlier this week, Her Majesty went to Kensington Palace to meet her sixth grandchild, little Prince Louis, who was born on Monday, April 23, at St. Mary's Hospital in London. But, rather than drive about 50 minutes to the gates of Kensington like a commoner, the Queen instead landed right on the castle’s lawn in her very own helicopter.

As Metro explained, the Queen emerged from the bright red chopper, which flew her from Windsor to Perks Field, holding a bouquet of spring flowers in one hand, presumably for little Louis and his mother, Kate Middleton.

She then stopped to wave and smile at the crowds who had gathered, giving them all a great view of her trademark headscarf, before popping into the awaiting Range Rover and zooming off to William and Kate’s home at apartment 1A.

The visit came just one day after the palace released Louis' official birth certificate, which listed his full title: His Royal Highness Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge.

Furthermore, the certificate also listed his mother and father’s occupations. For Prince William it was a simple “Prince of the United Kingdom” and for Kate, “Princess of the United Kingdom.”

While at Kensington, Queen Elizabeth undoubtedly celebrated Louis, who is now fifth in line for the throne. But surely, as any good grandmother would do, she likely also spent time with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who turned three on May 2.

And though the day was likely exciting, there will be no rest for the weary. The Queen, William, Kate, George, and Charlotte are all expected to make an appearance at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding on May 19. Hopefully the Queen will make just as grand an entrance there, too.
