Queen Elizabeth Has Not Passed Away, Despite Memes Circulating The Internet

It's that time of year again where someone on the internet starts a rumor about Queen Elizabeth II's death. Last year, a troll-y Redditor created a meme predicting the her death would occur on January 5th of this year.

This year the rumor was fabricated by a WhatsApp group claiming that she had passed away due to a heart attack on December 1st. 

We just want to make it clear that no, the queen is not dead, but of course that hasn't stopped people from making memes about it.

So without further ado, here are some of the best parodies and examples of the creepy Orwellian tweets!
