UNITED KINGDOM – Liz Truss and Keir Starmer were obviously on the list of people invited to Westminster Hall on Wednesday September 14, to pay their respects to Elizabeth II when her coffin arrived.

The British Prime Minister and the leader of the Labor Party joined mourners at a memorial service in memory of the Queen.

On social networks, the two politicians also stood out for a strange photo, showing them with their faces particularly closed in front of the queen’s coffin, to the point of becoming a meme on social networks, as seen in the tweets below.

“Liz Truss & Keir Starmer on autopilot mode”

“ALERT: Alien overlords have taken over the bodies of Liz Truss and Keir Starmer…”

“Even Keir Starmer is shocked by the state of Liz Truss. Strange and dangerous woman! »

“As the energy crisis worsens, Liz Truss and Keir Starmer have been turned off to save gas”

The funeral of Queen Elizabeth II will take place on Monday September 19 at Westminster Abbey in the heart of London.

It can hold up to 2,200 people. On the British side, there will of course be members of the royal family, Prime Minister Liz Truss, former Prime Ministers, other major political figures and a few VIPs.
