Following the demise of Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday, a video of the Arsenal team’s visit to Buckingham Palace in February 2007 surfaced online. At the time, they were the only club to ever be extended such an invitation.

After the Gunners relocated from Highbury to the Emirates Stadium in the summer of 2006, the Queen was supposed to cut the ribbon to mark the opening of the new stadium.

But Prince Philip took her place after she apparently strained her back.

The Queen reportedly invited the Arsenal players and staff for afternoon tea at the Palace after expressing her disappointment at missing the occasion.

And on that particular day, one gamer, in particular, had a fairly noteworthy experience with Her Majesty.

Eboue, a playfully charming player who made over 130 appearances for Arsenal between 2004 and 2011, recounted telling Queen Elizabeth II that he no longer wanted to play football and instead to take care of her corgis in an interview with the Telegraph in 2016.
