Hassan Whiteside prides himself on being a great Snapchat follow, but the Miami Heat center was hoping to take his Snap game to a whole new level during his trip across the pond.

Whiteside, in an effort to join “The Snapchat Hall of Fame,” posted up outside Buckingham Palace hoping to snap a few shots of the Queen of England. Unfortunately for the 7-footer, Queen Elizabeth II was nowhere to be found, and his Snapchat was left without British royalty.

However, Whiteside documented his efforts to get the Queen on camera, which were nothing short of hilarious.

You can check them out in the video below.

A valiant effort, indeed.
