The funeral of Queen Elizabeth II was a huge moment in modern history, watched by over 4 million people around the world. One of those was 23-year-old Christchurch Lizzie Smith, who having never shown the slightest interest in the Royals, made her devotion to the Queen a part of her personality seemingly overnight.
Lizzie felt her DGAF attitude toward the Royal family changing from the moment she learned of Queen Elizabeth's passing.
Her friend's cousin's ex-girlfriend posted three heartbroken emojis and a crown next to a portrait of the Queen on her Insta story.
However, she didn't perform a full 180 on a lifetime of disregard for her majesty until she got wind of how "seriously hard out" everyone was being about the broadcast of the state funeral on Monday night.
“It’s just, it’s a historical event, you simply wouldn’t want to miss it.”
Of course, she celebrated the ceremony with a marmalade sandwich and a glass of bubbles in honour of Queen Lizzie.
She reckons, “It was a moment the Queen would have been proud of. She really was a girl boss, it’s what she would have wanted.”
Lizzie admits to previously believing “I just didn’t think we should have one Queen, we’re all Queens, ya know?”
“But now, I just realised, she was the ONLY Queen in our lifetime, that’s like, a real achievement you know?”
She hastily deleted every tweet she had posted making fun of King Charles' sausage fingers and replaced her TikTok commentary about Trisha Paytas' baby name with a solemn montage of photos of the Queen throughout her reign.
She even went as far as to say she was proud to share her nickname with the Queen.
“It’s pretty magical that we share the same name, I will continue the name Liz on for her majesty,” She said with pride.
Lizzie's friends even noticed the change, noting she has developed a sudden fondness for the sound of the bagpipes, despite having only listened to Ross play them in that scene from 'Friends' before now.
Alright, Lizzie isn’t a real person but we’ve all seen a Lizzie pop up in the last 10 days, right?
