‘Killing Eve’ star Sandra Oh attends Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral; Twitterati react – Times of India


World leaders, monarchs, heads of state and quite a few Hollywood celebrities were spotted in attendance at Queen Elizabeth II‘s funeral, on Monday night at Westminster Abbey.

Those tuning in to watch the funeral of the longest reigning monarch in British history were surprised to spot television personalities joining the royal family to bid their final farewell to the Queen. Among the nearest and dearest present at the televised event were Hollywood star Sandra Oh and Bear Grylls, who participated in the historic event.

It was announced last week, that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau along with several notable figures would be attending the funeral on behalf of Canada. The list included the ‘Killing Eve’ actress, who was appointed an Order of Canada as an Officer a few months ago. It is the second-highest honour a Canadian citizen can receive from the Commonwealth country.

Oh attended the funeral as a part of the Canadian delegation alongside musicians Gregory Charles and Olympic gold medallist swimmer Mark Tewksbury.

Fans of the actress took to social media to share their surprise on spotting Oh make her way to her seat at Westminster Abbey. “WHY IS SANDRA OH AT THE QUEEN’S FUNERAL?” a fan asked while posting a clip of the actress.

Another tweeted, “Sandra Oh attending The Queen’s funeral, was not on my bingo card for 2022.”

‘Man vs. Wild’ star Bear Grylls was also spotted in attendance at the funeral to represent the Scouts. He was appointed as the United Kingdom‘s Chief Scout, a position he took back in 2009 and was made an Officer of the British Empire in 2019.

After attending the funeral, Bear tweeted, “It’s a day we will never forget… a truly beautiful testament to our Nation’s Sovereign, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth. Rest in Peace. Your duty done. Long Live King Charles…”
