Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was booed in London on Monday before the funeral for Queen Elizabeth II.

Protesters booed Trudeau after he was slammed over the weekend after video emerged that showed him partying during Canada’s official mourning period for The Queen.

Journalist Keean Bexte shared a video of the incident on Twitter, writing: “Trudeau booed outside of Canada House after he was caught singing Queen hours before the funeral.”


Trudeau sang “Bohemian Rhapsody” in London’s Corinthia Hotel on Saturday night, which sparked immediate backlash online apparently because the song was by Queen.

“After dinner on Saturday, Prime Minister joined a small gathering with members of the Canadian delegation, who have come together to pay tribute to the life and service of Her Majesty,” a spokesperson for Trudeau said. “Gregory Charles, a renowned musician from Quebec and Order of Canada recipient, played piano in the hotel lobby which resulted in some members of the delegation including the prime minister joining.”

Thousands filled the streets of London Monday on a fittingly gloomy day to say goodbye to the Queen in hopes of seeing her casket carried through the city as part of the royal procession for her grand state funeral.

The Queen’s casket first departed from Westminster Hall, where she had been lying in state, to Westminster Abbey. At the Abbey, the Queen received a funeral service attended by 2,000 individuals, including heads of state from around the globe. President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden were in attendance.

Throngs of people from around the United Kingdom began lining up Sunday night to secure a spot in the crowd to say their final goodbyes to the monarch who served her country for 70 years on the throne. Many began making preparations for this historic day as soon as they heard she had passed away on September 8.

The entire city appeared to be dressed in black for the somber day as accents from all over the U.K. could be heard praying or crying. Most of the crowd was silent in reverent observance of the ceremony, with many “shushing” those who attempted to speak.

Even those who don’t necessarily support the royal family came to pay their respects to the dearly departed leader.
