The Brief: These memes suggest that the 93-year-old Queen Elizabeth II is immortal and invincible against Coronavirus.
In the opposite vein of 2019 memes predicting Queen Elizabeth’s death, Redditors are now calling her invincible and immortal as those around her test positive for Coronavirus. According to a March 27 report from Buckingham Palace, Queen Elizabeth II last saw Prime Minister Boris Johnson on March 11 and she remains in “good health.” 93-year-old Queen of England’s healthy status is welcome, but potentially surprising news as both Boris Johnson and her son Prince Charles have recently tested positive for COVID-19.
This chain of events has inspired meme-makers to comment on the queen’s health and longevity, sometimes suggesting that she is immune to death, or that she’s been alive forever. Many of these memes portray Queen Elizabeth as a god-like entity who cannot be defeated by the forces of nature. Others crack jokes about her being “ancient” or “as old as Big Ben.”
