Trudeau slammed as 'embarrassment' for singing Bohemian Rhapsody days before Queen's funeral 

Justin Trudeau has faced intense backlash after a clip emerged of him singing Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody after a dinner party just two days before Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral.

Canada’s Prime Minister was filmed singing Freddie Mercury’s iconic song during an impromptu session at the Corinthia Hotel, London, during the official period of mourning, just days before Her Majesty’s state funeral.

Canada’s prime minister, 50, arrived in England following the death of Queen Elizabeth to join world leaders at her monumental funeral Monday morning.

Wearing a casual brown T-shirt, Trudeau was seen standing by a piano during an impromptu sing-along with other members of his formal delegation in the central London hotel lobby.

Gregory Charles, a renowned musician from Quebec, is understood to have been playing the keys as others joined in the tune on Saturday night.

Trudeau was heard playing the infamous notes, along with Queen’s lyrics: “Easy come, easy go.” A little high, a little low.

The Prime Minister, whose country recognized the Queen, and now King Charles, as its official head of state, harmonized with the pianist during the short clip.

It was filmed after the delegation attended a dinner on Saturday night.

However, the uncovered video has caused a furore online, with many criticizing the prime minister for the joy just 48 hours before the Queen’s funeral at Westminster Abbey and her burial.

The beloved monarch died at the age of 96 on Thursday, September 8, 2022, at Balmoral Castle in Scotland.

One irate person wrote online: ‘Curious how you can qualify this as a tribute to Her Majesty’s life and service? Because they were singing Queen music? That’s pretty rude!

Another irate viewer added: ‘Pay tribute? How deaf do you have to be to think this is somehow a tribute? This is a shame.

A third said: ‘Drunk singing is a ‘tribute’? What a shame. There is no indication that the prime minister was drinking before singing at the piano on Saturday night.

“Over the past 10 days, the Prime Minister has participated in various activities to pay his respects to the Queen and today, the entire delegation is participating in the State Funeral.”
