Trudeau Slammed for Singing at London Hotel Before Funeral of Queen Elizabeth.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was caught singing Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody at a hotel, just days before the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth the Second.

Trudeau, who flew to London as part of the Canadian delegation for the state funeral for the late Queen, was videoed dramatically singing along to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody at the Corinthian Hotel lobby.

Unsurprisingly, Trudeau was widely criticised for the spectacle, with many online describing him as “drunk,” despite no concrete evidence to suggest that he was. Keean Bexte of The Counter Signal, described it as “one of the most embarassing Trudeau moments to date.”

In a statement, a spokesman for Trudeau tried to explain away the video. “After dinner on Saturday, the 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,” the statement reads:

“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. Over the past 10 days, the Prime Minister has taken part in various activities to pay his respects for the Queen, and today, the entire delegation is taking part in the state funeral.”

Canadian liberal outlets, including CP24 and the Toronto Star, decided to interpret the statement liberally, and declared that the song itself was meant to be a tribute to Her Majesty in the headline and body of their coverage, despite there being absolutely no evidence to suggest that.

Trudeau was in fact booed by crowds as he left Canada House in London, with the sounds of disapproval from the crowds clearly heard on a video posted to popular social media site, TikTok.

Much of the UK was shut down on Monday morning, as the population mourned the life of Queen Elizabeth, who was the longest reigning monarch in British history. As an impromptu bank holiday was created for the funeral, surgeries and other medical appointments were cancelled as well as a result.
