Spider spotted on Queen Elizabeth’s coffin during funeral

A certain spider was about to say goodbye to her late queen.

The world gathered Monday morning to lay Queen Elizabeth to rest during her funeral service.

Eagle-eyed royal observers spied a crawling creature on a letter placed on the coffin.

The card was actually a letter that King Charles III. wrote to his mother, who is buried with her. The note read: “In loving and devoted memory. Karl R.”

Viewers couldn’t help but notice the spider during the ceremony and tweeted their thoughts after spotting the creature.

“Throughout the Queen’s funeral I keep thinking about the spider I saw on her flowers and where the hell is it now???? If I didn’t catch myself picking her up, I’d be out,” someone wondered.

“Did anyone just see the spider on the queen’s coffin?”, one added. Others chimed in: “Bro, there’s a spider walking across the card on the queen’s coffin.”

Another said: “Whoever left the #interflora card on the Queen’s flowers didn’t realize what is now the world’s most famous spider [sic].”

“The Queen and the Spider. That’s a book title right there,” interjected another. “There was a spider on the queen’s coffin. As a spider fan, I’m thrilled! Happiest Spider Alive!”

Also on the coffin was an intricate bouquet that the new king, 73, had ordered.

The floral wreath featured symbolic blooms, including blooms from her wedding bouquet from her marriage to her late husband, Prince Philip.

The Royal family tweeted of the wreath on September 19, wrote: “At the King’s request, the wreath includes leaves of rosemary, English oak and myrtle (cut from a plant grown from myrtle in the Queen’s wedding bouquet) and flowers in shades of gold, pink and deep Burgundies with touches of white, cut from the gardens of royal residences.”

The bouquet, along with her crown and sceptre, were placed on her coffin during her funeral and as she made her way from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey.
