"'And you can't trick it?"

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II got a lesson in shopping at the self-service counter when she visited United Kingdom supermarket Sainsbury's on Wednesday.

It was explained to her how shoppers now use self-service tills and pay using their mobile phones, although she did not try it out herself, and she also cut a commemorative birthday cake.

Her Majesty cheekily asked "you can't cheat then?" as she was introduced to the modern supermarket till in London's Covent Garden today.

There was also a demonstration of a shopping basket from the 1950s, containing a herring paste that the Queen labelled as "ghastly".

Britain's Queen Elizabeth arrives to visit a replica of one of the original Sainsbury's stores in London, Britain May 22, 2019.

Upon arrival, the monarch was greeted by Lord and Lady Sainsbury, who gave her a tour of the recreation, which takes visitors through its history - from the development of rationing to the introduction of self-service shopping.

The monarch also met Sainsbury's employees from around the country, including some with over 50 years service and others who have positively impacted their community through volunteering or fundraising.

The original store stocked only the basic essentials, specializing in butter and eggs, but Sainsbury's is now a multi-million pound business.

Fans loved seeing the Queen and were amused by her question.

On Monday, the Queen was pictured visiting the Duchess of Cambridge's woodland garden at the Chelsea Flower Show.

Her Majesty wore the same lime green coat and floral dress she wore at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's wedding at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in May a year ago.
