During the funeral service for Queen Elizabeth II, a piece of paper of all things became famous on the Internet. What was on the note?

When billions of pairs of eyes attend a historic event such as the Queen’s state funeral, no detail, no matter how banal, no oddity, no matter how banal, goes unnoticed – and in times of Twitter and Co. certainly not uncommented. A dropped piece of paper during the service in honor of Elizabeth II (1926-2022) on Monday afternoon (September 19) in Westminster Abbey caused an uproar on the internet. The “Funeral Paper” even got its own Twitter account – along with the hashtag #Papergate.

The web gets creative

“Imagine being the guy who dumped me at the Queen’s funeral” it says in the attached tweet on the account. Also one View via aerial view from Google Maps offers the profile jokingly. As well as the upcoming Netflix original as a spin-off of “The Crown” titled “The Paper”.

Other pranksters promptly jumped on the bandwagon. For all chess friends, for example, the explanation why the bishop – in German both bishop and the chess piece bishop – who dropped the paper could not pick it up: “It was right in front of him, not diagonally.”

Some Twitter users even claim to have found detailed shots that show what is written on the paper: “Don’t drop the paper.”
