On Sunday, England's Queen Elizabeth made a rare televised address to her nation amid the coronavirus pandemic, offering a straightforward and inspirational message to viewers about the challenges everyone -- not just the British people -- face due to COVID-19. The four-minute address was pragmatic about the difficulties ahead, but also optimistic about life beyond the pandemic, closing on a note of hope. While the address was well-received, though, some clever viewers took something else from the Queen's address: her green dress that has now sparked a hilarious photoshop challenge on social media.
In her taped address, the Queen wore a bright green dress with her signature pearls and a turquoise and diamond brooch. It was an outfit very much what one might expect from Queen Elizabeth, but as one Twitter user noted, it also was "the perfect Photoshop bait," prompting them to make a hilarious edit of her outfit to feature a cat meme. It's the internet, folks; you can't internet without cat memes. Check it out below.
I, for one, would like to thank the Queen for making her royal address and providing the nation with something it sorely needs right now...
