These Two Strangers Met Queuing To See The Queen’s Coffin And Now They’ll Watch The Funeral Together

Like a tale out of a classic British romcom, two strangers hit it off in the queue to see the Queen lying in state and are now going to watch the Queen’s funeral together.

Royal mourners Jack and Zoe joined the line on Friday night at 10:30pm.

Stretching over eight kilometers (five miles) long, the queue had a 13 hour wait time at the time, according to the government’s live tracker.

Appearing on an interview on Channel 4, the pair spoke about how they kept each other company through the night with crisps, chat and banter.

“We’ve actually got loads of things in common,” Jack said.

They have since made plans to watch the Queen’s funeral together on Monday.

“It’s going to be mixed emotions,” Zoe said, “It’s something that is part of history so we want to be there and share that moment with someone else.”

The interview has since gone viral on Twitter, gaining more than two million views.

People shared their support of the budding romance and calling it a “meet queue”.

“Richard Curtis romcom called The Queue, back end of 2023, cameo by David Beckham. Just warning you,” one person wrote.

Others joined in with clever puns like “Queue Actually” and “Four Queues and a Funeral.”

Reporter Stephenson even tweeted “Call me queue-pid” with a heart-on-fire emoji.

On Sunday night, a one-minute silence was held across the UK at 8pm for the late queen.

The state funeral begins at 11am BST at Westminster Abbey on Monday Sep. 19.
