Mom claims seeing Queen’s casket ‘tops’ having kids

It was the queen of ridiculous statements.

Just in case you thought waiting on line for 24 hours to see Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin was insane — this devoted mourner is being ripped on social media after claiming that glimpsing her late highness’ casket was better than having kids, as seen in videos amassing millions of views on Twitter.

An adoring mourner named Sarah had expressed the cringeworthy sentiment while she and and a guy friend named Mark were being interviewed by BBC One about the event, the Metro reported. The UK outlet had asked the pair what it felt like to be the last ones to see the queen’s casket at Westminster Hall before her funeral Monday.

That’s when the starry-eyed sovereign supporter dropped the shark-jumping statement. “Amazing. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done in my life,” the mother fawned in response. “Even having my children, Lily and Luca. I think this tops that.”

Needless to say, the controversial comment dropped jaws on social media, with one aghast critic writing, “Get me off this planet.”

“If going to a funeral is better than having kids … maybe you shouldn’t have had kids!” suggested another.

One disbelieving commenter sarcastically dubbed Sarah the “parent of the year.”

"It's the best thing I've ever done in my life," Sarah gushed while describing seeing the deceased monarch. "Even having my children Lily and Luca. I think this tops that."

Others thought it ludicrous that seeing a dead monarch would trump creating life. “Sorry kids, seeing a dead billionaire for about a minute was better than having you,” snarked one disillusioned cynic.
