The strange voice that disrupted ITV’s Livestream of the Queen’s burial and appeared to declare, “Death is irreversible,” scared many as they watched.
The disturbing video, which depicts the late monarch’s remains being transported from Westminster Abbey, where her state funeral was held, to St. George’s Chapel in Windsor, was later published on social media.
Some viewers, though, thought it might be a late royal family member. To form your own opinion, carefully listen to the video and say:

The video begins with an image of the Queen’s hearse and a spooky voice that begins, “that death is irreversible and the fact that she’s…” before the presenter interrupts.
The last phrase is difficult to understand since it might mean either “stuck” or “traveling,” according to one individual, “Given that she is trapped and that the death is final.
I heard that.”
Another person commented: “I think they were about to say, ‘the fact that she’s traveled,’ but it gets cut off before she finishes the phrase.
The footage, which has received at least two million views on TikTok alone, has given rise to several rumors on social media, however.
Even the possibility that Princess Diana was communicating from beyond the grave was raised by some TikTok members.
“Sounds like Diana,” a viewer said.
Another person said: “Spirit can converse via frequencies… sounds like Diana,”
A third person said, “Does sound like a ghostly Diana that ngl,” while a fourth stated, “Something is wrong; I can sense it [sic].”
One of the fifths said, “This is so amazing. Diana gets the last say.
A sixth person, though, gave a more sensible explanation for what was happening, writing: “Could be someone seated close to the presenter and was chatting while the microphones were on [sic].”
The National had a similar viewpoint, stating that the scary voice was most likely an outsider chatting in the broadcasting room inadvertently caught up by the presenter’s microphone.
A spider that was seen crawling across the late monarch’s coffin also gained national attention, making the phantom voice at the Queen’s burial far from the first incident to go off the rails.
Imagining themselves as a spider in a garden, one Twitter user wrote: “Imagine you fall asleep on a pink rose.
You suddenly find yourself nude in front of global leaders and billions of people on top of the Queen’s coffin in Westminster Abbey when you wake up and stretch all your small legs.
Another person said, “The fly on Mike Pence’s head is now less renowned than the spider on Queen Elizabeth’s coffin.”
Another couldn’t resist cracking a joke, saying, “The spider atop the Queen’s coffin got an invite to her burial via the web.”
Did anyone else spot the spider catching a ride on Queen Elizabeth II coffin? 😳#queensfuneral #QueenElizabethIIMemorial #QueenElizabeth #funeral #Goodbye #QueenElizabethII #QueenElizabethFuneral pic.twitter.com/wkoelRRvCD

Another said, “I love the small spider crawling across the Queen’s coffin, absolutely unaware [of] [whose] coffin it is].” A fifth person commented. It kind of serves as a reminder that even though she was the Queen, she was still merely a regular person.
