as a blacksmith Queen Elizabeth II Continuing, the official date for her funeral was announced as her body finally arrived in London. However, people have noticed that the date is being put on a really weird date that wouldn’t lie, it’s disturbingly funny in hindsight.
The Queen’s funeral is scheduled for September 19. And in case you didn’t know, this is the same date as “Talk Like A Pirate Day”. How strange it is that while the world mourns an iconic royal figure, her funeral is also on the same day as the pirate pun cruising the seven seas. But perhaps this is just what the world needs given that the UK is currently on hold due to this tragedy.
People noticed this and are looking forward to seeing how mon-arr-ch will be handled during the event.
Others stated that they were overwhelmed by this information because the timing is really funny considering this is the only time a pirate pun has been accepted. Meanwhile, others hope for an “interesting” funeral service.
Queen Elizabeth II died on September 8 at her estate in Balmoral. Since then, the Queen’s body has been safely returned to London where the royal family has gathered to pay their respects to their missing relative. The UK has entered a 10-day state of mourning as radio stations are now being asked to play sad and gloomy music, as well as images of the Queen appearing on nearly every screen.
The Queen’s funeral will take place at Westminster Abbey on September 19 at 11:00am BST. The public will have four days before the official corpse viewing event at Westminster Hall before it makes its way to Wellington Arch.
