Spider spotted on top of Queen Elizabeth’s coffin during funeral

A certain spider just wanted to say goodbye to his late Queen.

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

Eagle-eyed royal watchers spied a crawling creature on top of a letter that was placed onto of the coffin.

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

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

“Throughout the full of the Queen’s funeral I keep thinking about the spider I saw on her flowers and where the f— it is now???? Wouldn’t catch me picking her back up I’d be out of there,” someone wondered

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

Another said: “Whoever left the #interflora card on the queen’s flowers didn’t notice, what is now, the worlds most famous spider [sic].”

“The Queen and the spider. That’s a book title right there,” another interjected. “There was a spider on The Queen’s Coffin. As a spider fan, I am elated! Luckiest Spider in the world!”

Also on top of the coffin, was an intricate bouquet of flowers that the new King, 73, ordered.

The floral wreath contained symbolic florets that included blossoms from her wedding bouquet from her marriage to her late husband Prince Philip.

The Royal Family tweeted about the wreath on Sept. 19, penning: “At The King’s request, the wreath contains foliage 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 burgundy, with touches of white, cut from the gardens of Royal Residences.”

The bouquet, as well as her crown and scepter, were laid on her casket all throughout her funeral and as it made its route from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey.
