The Internet Loves This Accidental Meme From The Royal Family

Published: (Updated: ) in Australian News by .

Maybe it’s the difference in lighting. Perhaps it’s the setting or the corgi figurines. It could also be the look on Queen Elizabeth’s face, juxtaposed with Boris Johnson’s disheveled hair. 

But people are having a lot of reactions to the royal family’s Instagram post on Wednesday, which shows the queen in conversation with the prime minister during her weekly audience. 

And while the message is important ― stay at home and restrict your contact with other people to curb the spread of COVID-19 ― the picture just looks like the perfect meme:

“THANK YOU FOR THIS VERY CLEAR MEME,” Instagram user notenoughangers commented on the post, which was already gaining a lot of likes.

“Same. I thought it was a meme at first and then saw the source,” another user added, while a third chimed in with “I can already see the memes.”

We’re sure Prince George satirist Gary Janetti is on it

Others on Twitter agreed on the possibilities:

Beyond the formatting of the pictures, some people were shocked by the use of landlines. 

“Haven’t seen Phones with cords in a long time!! Cool!!” one person said, while others chimed in with “Wow those phones are still in use.”

And, of course, many commenters simply wrote, “God Save the Queen.” 

There is a lot of concern for the 93-year-old queen and her health amidst the global pandemic, especially now that Clarence House has confirmed that Prince Charles tested positive for COVID-19. 

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and Prince Charles attend the Commonwealth Day reception on March 9, 2020, in London.

A spokesperson for the prince said that he is currently experiencing “mild symptoms” and is still working from Birkhall in Scotland. Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, is also in Scotland but is self-isolating separately from her husband while he recovers. 

Although Charles and the queen recently made an appearance together at Commonwealth Day services alongside the rest of the royal family, Buckingham Palace said Wednesday that “the Queen remains in good health.” 

“The Queen last saw The Prince of Wales briefly on the morning of 12 March and is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare,” a spokesperson added.
