The Queen accidentally makes herself into a meme as people flock to joke about her phone chat with Boris


THE Queen has accidentally been turned into a meme after sharing a snap of herself on the phone to Boris Johnson. 

With the UK in lockdown to help stop the spread of coronavirus, the monarch held her weekly audience with the prime minister over the phone.

The royal family, and the PM, shared a snap of the pair on the telephone to social media, with both parties using old-fashioned phones with cords. 

But the unusual image has seen the 93-year-old added into countless hilarious scenes, including on the phone with the cast of Mean Girls, Lionel Ritchie and even Noel Edmonds from Deal or No Deal. 

Uploading the shot to Twitter, the royal’s team said: “The Queen held her weekly Audience with the Prime Minister today by telephone.

“Her Majesty – pictured this evening at Windsor Castle – has held a weekly Audience with her Prime Minister throughout her reign.”

While Boris’ office wrote: “This evening, Prime Minister @BorisJohnson took part in the weekly Audience of Her Majesty The Queen by telephone from his Downing Street office.”

Sharing the snap online, one person simply said: “Prime meme material.” 

While someone else admitted they initially thought the image was a hoax.

They wrote: “Scrolled straight past this as I honestly thought it was a meme. 

“But no… Buckingham Palace has shared a photo of the Queen’s weekly audience with Prime Minister Boris Johnson today – done over the phone due to coronavirus.”

A third added a few other celebs into the image, saying: “Imagine if they let @TheEllenShow @BarackObama and @rickygervais join the call!”

And we take a peek inside the Queen’s living room at Windsor Castle where she took the call.

Plus tt was announced Prince Charles had been displaying mild symptoms but remains in “good health” after being diagnosed with the deadly bug on Monday night.

Buckingham Palace has since confirmed the Queen remains in “good health” after heading to Windsor last Thursday with Prince Philip a week earlier than planned.
