Royal TV watchers spotted an eight-legged creature hitching a ride in London on the late-Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin, and it’s been dubbed the “luckiest spider in the world.”

In images that surfaced on social media Monday, we see the little spider crawling over the handwritten card left by her son, King Charles III, and in the floral wreath on the coffin during the royal funeral procession, the Daily Mail reported.

The spider was only seen for a few seconds, as the late monarch’s coffin was draped in the Royal Standard traveling down the nave of Westminster Abbey before the funeral.

Twitter users watching the ceremony on television started asking each other if they had seen the little guy. One person called the eight-legged creature the “most famous spider.” While another person described it as the “luckiest” one.

“Did anyone see that spider on that bouquet of flowers?” one account tweeted. “On the queens coffin?”

Another tweeted, “That spider crawling about on the queens coffin has got to be the most famous spider in the world now.”

“There was a spider on The Queen’s Coffin,” another wrote. “As a spider fan, I am elated!”

“Luckiest Spider in the world!” another person exclaimed.

The flowers on the late Queen’s wreath came from the gardens of Buckingham Palace, Clarence House, and Highgrove House, with each one chosen for its symbolism and meaning.

Myrtle, grown from a sprig taken from the late Queen’s wedding bouquet, was chosen because it’s an ancient symbol of a happy marriage, while rosemary was for remembrance.

Thousands of people filled the streets in London to honor and pay respect to the Queen who died on September 8, as The Daily Wire previously reported. She was 96 years old.

She was the longest reigning monarch in British history and recently celebrated 70 years on the throne during her Platinum Jubilee in June.
