The Royal Family is the talk of the water cooler these days, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding having just occurred. It certainly was a moment to go down in history and the fanfare did not disappoint.
There were plenty of famous faces in the crowd, and Meghan’s Givenchy wedding dress was absolutely stunning, as was to be expected.
However, many Royal-watchers pointed out one interesting thing from the ceremony and it occurred after Harry and Meghan’s vows were exchanged.
Watch the amazing moment below, as the Queen stands and just lets everybody sing to her:
Right after the vows, the entire congregation stood to sing the British national anthem, well, everyone except the Queen, that is. While Queen Elizabeth did stand up, she did not sing along like everyone else did in the room.
Why? Well, it’s perhaps for the obvious reason that the British national anthem is “God Save the Queen”, so it might have been a little awkward if she did. Some joked that she should have sung along “God save me” instead, but that would have been terribly un-Royal behavior.
Besides, Queen Elizabeth has been the reigning monarch for 65 years now, so surely she’s sick of the song by now, anyway. She can have a free pass for not singing along.
That being said, the internet is having a field day about the whole situation. One person tweeted, “I find it so damn hilarious that the queen NEVER sings the anthem. She’s always just there like ‘sing it b***hes!’”
Another wrote, “The queen just sits there during the national anthem like yes peasants sing to me”. It’s certainly got to be one heck of an ego trip. Then again, it is about saving the Crown and not Elizabeth, personally.
I mean, anyone who’s watched a few episodes of The Crown on Netflix knows that decisions made from the position of ‘Queen’ are different from those made as ‘Elizabeth’. Still, when you hold the position of Queen it’s got to be pretty great hearing everyone sing to you!
But Queen Elizabeth always has a way of proving she’s still a mere mortal like the rest of us. She actually rode with Meghan Markle’s dog to Windsor recently. Both carpooled together in the backseat of the Queen’s ride.
Meghan’s dog, a beagle named Guy, was seen poking his head up to look out the window beside the Queen. Do you think he knows who he’s sitting beside? Perhaps the Queen will give him a title. Maybe something like Royal Pup of Sussex.
For all the amazing highlights from the Royal Wedding, check out the video below:
It’s no secret the Queen loves dogs, as all the best people do. She kept beloved Corgis for years, so perhaps she’s thrilled to take care of Meghan’s beagle for a short period of time, especially while Meghan is a bit preoccupied with her new husband, Prince Harry.
Well, I suppose there’s one thing the Queen and Meghan’s dog have in common. I doubt Guy sings “God Save the Queen” either. If he did, I would be royally impressed.
