Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is being criticized for his lack of decorum after a video of him emerged singing Queen while in London to pay his respects for Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral.

A video emerged of Trudeau singing Freddie Mercury’s Bohemian Rhapsody while a member of the Canadian entourage, Gregory Charles, plays the piano. 

The Counter Signal’s Keean Bexte said Trudeau is “drunkenly signing for an audience at the funeral of his predecessor. Classy.”

Many users suggested the video was from the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and was only resurfacing now to make Trudeau look bad, but the Prime Minister’s Office confirmed the video’s authenticity. 

Trudeau is dressed in a T-shirt, singing “Easy come, easy go, little high, little low” and “Anyway the wind blows.” Two people standing near the piano are drinking red wine as the former drama teacher performed, according to The Telegraph.

The video was captured at the five-star Corinthia hotel on Saturday.

Critics online quickly said Trudeau was disrespectful to the Queen and that he showed “poor judgement.”

American political comedian Alex Stein commented on the video, saying “This is actually insane.”

Other users said Trudeau was “presumably drunk” in the video, while some commented with the #TrudeauMustGo, which has been trending on Twitter for days. 

Some suggested that Trudeau always has to be the centre of attention — even when it’s the Queen’s funeral.

Another wondered where Trudeau’s mask was and if “The Science” had changed again.

The Prime Minister’s Office defended his actions in a statement, according to The Telegraph. 

“Gregory Charles, a renowned musician from Quebec and Order of Canada recipient, played piano in the hotel lobby, which resulted in some members of the delegation including the Prime Minister joining.” 

Besides Trudeau, a delegation of former prime ministers, including Kim Campbell, Jean Chrétien, Paul Martin and Stephen Harper, also travelled to London for the Queen’s state funeral.

Shortly after the singing video emerged, Trudeau was booed by London onlookers hours before the Queen’s funeral.
