Did Boris Johnson fall at the Queen’s funeral?

Queen Elizabeth was laid to rest on Monday (September 19) following a huge state funeral at Westminster Abbey.

More than 2,000 people attended the service and billions watched at home to say goodbye to Britain’s longest reigning monarch.

Her Majesty died on September 8 at Balmoral in Scotland and Britain began ten days of national mourning after her death.

Celebrities, world leaders, the Royal Family, Queen’s staff, politicians and more attended the funeral in London.

All eyes were on the former British prime ministers who sat in the front row, and a clip has gone viral following the service which claims to show Boris Johnson falling.

Boris Johnson did not fall at the Queen’s funeral

Despite rumors, the former British Prime Minister did not fall at Queen Elizabeth’s funeral.

The video, which has taken over TikTok and Twitter, shows a person falling from the Queen’s bed in Westminster Hall.

She lay in state for four days as mourners paid their respects, and the clip sees someone fall to the ground on the palace steps.

A worker then rushes to check if the man is okay in the clip which was taken from the live state news feed.

The caption reads ‘Who pushed Boris Johnson at the Queen’s funeral’, implying that it was Boris hitting the ground in the clip.

He has blonde hair like the politician and wears a suit, but he’s not Boris at all, and he didn’t fall at the Queen’s funeral.

The clip wasn’t even from the funeral at all, it was from the in-state lie, and it’s unclear who the person who fell on the steps was.

Six former prime ministers attended the service

Boris was one of six former British leaders who attended the monarch’s funeral on Monday, arriving while in office.

John Major arrived first with his wife Norma, followed by Tony Blair and his wife Cherie. Then Gordon Brown and Sarah Jane followed.

David Cameron was next with his wife Samantha, then Theresa May and her husband Philip and Boris and Carrie at the end.

Initially, Boris and his wife entered behind Tony Blair, but they were quickly pushed aside as they were in the wrong position.

New Prime Minister Liz Truss was also present with her husband Hugh O’Leary and she read Lesson Two during the service.

She read John 14:1-9a, beginning: “Do not let your heart be troubled: you believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house there are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you.

Boris ‘moved’ by Queen’s ‘sense of duty’

Boris had some nice things to say about the Queen following her death after her three years in office.

Elizabeth appointed the 58-year-old as prime minister in 2019, the 14th of 15 leaders she hosted during her reign.

“When I heard about her death two days later, I just thought how her sense of duty had held her down,” he said in a BBC interview.

The ex-Prime Minister described how the Queen had been ‘in the loop’ when he met her just two days before her death, saying she seemed very ‘bright’ and ‘focused’.

He added that she was “actively focused on geopolitics” and “quoting 1950s statesmen” when he met her when Liz Truss became prime minister.

“It was quite extraordinary”, concluded the politician before saying that he found it so “moving” that Elizabeth continued her duty despite obvious discomfort.
