Church leader drops note during Queen’s funeral and internet loses it

Today is a solemn one as the world bids its final goodbyes to Queen Elizabeth II.

But, in true British spirit, people have still found humour in the little things – namely, any slip up whatsoever.

So when a prominently placed church leader accidentally dropped a piece of paper during the Queen’s funeral, the internet was delighted.

As the Dean of Westminster started his address, the representative put his glasses on while still holding onto a handful of papers at the same time.

A small sheet slipped out from his grip and landed on the floor – and Twitter has been thoroughly entertained ever since.

Many people have joked that the note was a shopping list, with some taking a stab at what groceries were written down.

Andy quipped: ‘Two pints of milk, white sliced, 20 B&H, Razzle.’

Sian Aitken, from Edinburgh, said: ‘We were obsessed with the clip for the five minutes the piece of paper was sitting on the floor.’

Bob wrote: ‘Thankfully the Queen and Prince Phillip found humour in these slip ups. I found it fitting this happened at her funeral. She’ll be looking down with a smile.’

Another posted: ‘Imagine being the guy who dropped a piece of paper at the start of the Queen’s funeral and now it’s laying on the floor behind her coffin directly in view of every camera and you have to stare at it for the rest of the funeral.’

The sheet was picked up off the floor at some point during the ceremony but this action – sure to be another internet beloved – was not caught on camera.

This was not the only unscripted moment today, as it came after an uninvited guest was noticed crashing the funeral service at Westminster Abbey.

The Queen was joined by a small, green spider who was filmed scurrying over a note placed in some beautiful flowers on top of her coffin.

The spider disappeared into the bouquet – but not before people on social media spotted it.

One viewer joked: ‘The spider realising its accidentally become a part of the Queen’s funeral.’

Another added: ‘Is there a Twitter account for the Queen’s Coffin Wreath Spider yet?’
