The Queen’s jet was forced to interrupt her landing while traveling to Windsor ahead of her platinum jubilee celebrations.
The pilot abandoned landing at RAF Northolt in north London on the first attempt due to an electrical storm, rain and hail, reports The Sun.
The 13-seater plane flew for about 15 minutes until it was considered safe enough to make a second landing attempt, the newspaper added.
A spokesman for Buckingham Palace said: “The Queen’s flight was delayed due to a lightning storm, all proper procedures were followed and there were no security issues.”
The flight landed safely and the queen was seen returning to Windsor on Tuesday later.
