What is happening on TikTok about the Queen?

TikTok users around the world have started recording videos of themselves “reacting” to fake news that the Queen will die on Monday.

One man posted on his sick video: “Recording this for when the Queen dies on October 18th 2021.”

He then pretended to wail and cry. His clip has been viewed more than one million times.

But the weird trend appears to have originated from one particular user based in America.

The man – using the name Dennis – begins his video with a recent clip of the Queen arriving at a public engagement.

As she gets out of the car, a member of her team hands her a walking stick.

The TikTok user’s caption reads: “First time the Queen, aged 95, is seen using a cane in public.”

‘Dennis’ then appears on screen, with his hood up and a metal ring through his nostrils.

“Guys, this has to be telling you, the Queen of England hasn’t been using a walker or a cane since about 2003 or 2004. And that was for knee surgery,” he says.

“Her health is declining.”

The man then claims to know the exact time the Queen will pass away.

Even more preposterously, he then also gives his prediction for Prince Andrew’s death.

The TikToker says: “I’m telling you, solidifying it, October 18th at 5.47pm England time, surrounded by loved ones, Will and Kate will not be there.

“And then Prince Andrew is going to die on October 22.”

Despite the absurdity of the video, it has been viewed a whopping 21.4 million times.

What are people saying about the TikTok video?

Dennis’ video has become the topic of conversation on other social media sites, too.

One person wrote on Twitter: “Why the hell is my TikTok full of videos saying that the Queen of England is dying on October 18 at 5pm UK time?”

Another tweeted: “Some random dude on TikTok said he thinks the Queen is going to die on October 18 of this year so now we wait.”

Others have been discussing it on website Reddit.

On asked: “What’s going on with people saying Queen Elizabeth II will die on October 18th?

“I saw some videos on TikTok saying the Queen of England will die on October 18th.”

Another, more sensible, Reddit user replied: “It’s just a meme.

“This happens at least once a year where someone will name a date for the Queen to die, and everyone will laugh and say ‘it would be crazy if she does’. No one really believes them.”

The person added: “TikKok just makes memes snowball more and more as people can get in on it easy.”
