On Monday, mourning the late Queen of Britain at the age of 96, witnessed many snapshots and events, including one of the strange moments at Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, the ceremony known as “breaking the stick”, an event that has not occurred since the death of her father, King George VI, who was buried in 1952, which the public had never seen widely before, according to the British newspaper “The Guardian”.

The wand, at the Royal Funeral, had nothing to do with the legend of Arthur Merlin, or indeed a more modern British wizard in Harry Potter, but was in fact a symbol of Lord Lord Andrew Parker, chief custodian of the royal court.

The rite of breaking the wand, symbolizes the end of the service of the chief custodian of the royal court, and after the wand is broken and the Queen’s service ends, King Charles duly appoints a chief custodian, who receives a new wand in the position.

Lord Andrew Parker, Chief Secretary to the Royal Court, is considered to be the highest office in the service of the royal family, and Parker has held this position since April 1, 2021, and was responsible for organizing ceremonial activities such as weddings, funerals and state visits..

On the other hand, it is noteworthy that the pioneers of social networking sites circulated a video clip, showing a spider on the coffin of Queen Elizabeth II, during the funeral ceremony of her body to his final resting place in the King George VI Memorial Church.

The video clip documented the spider making its way over the coffin of Queen Elizabeth in Westminster Abbey, specifically in the wreath of flowers and leaves cut from the gardens of Buckingham Palace, which was above the coffin, and the spider appeared moving on a letter written by King Charles III, which stated: “In A loving and sincere memory… Charles”, before the spider finally disappears from view, and returns to the inside of the package.

After the final farewell prayers for Queen Elizabeth II at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, her coffin was seen being lowered to the royal vault below the church, where she will be buried alongside her husband, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, her father, King George, her mother the Queen Mother and the ashes of her sister Margaret.
