Viewers noticed an unexpected guest on top of Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin during her funeral at Westminster Abbey on Monday.
A spider crawled across King Charles III’s poignant note to his late mother, with some dubbing it a “good omen.”
The spider seen on the letter to Queen Elizabeth II is a good omen. Spiders have symbolized many things including feminine power. Also Queen Elizabeth loved nature and all animals. Maybe this was just a final nod from her Majesty. #QueenElizabethII #QueenElizabeth #queensfuneral

The note read: “In loving and devoted memory. Charles R.”
Monday’s funeral was emotional, as the world bid farewell to Britain’s longest-reigning monarch.
Charles was joined by his sons Princes William and Harry to walk behind the coffin, along with royals, including Princess Anne and Princes Edward and Andrew.
The King fought back tears as “God Save the King” was sung during both the Westminster Abbey and Windsor Castle services.
