Fuming Queens funeral guest snubbed over handshake at Westminster Abbey

Footage from the Queen's funeral shows a guest being 'snubbed' at the door of Westminster Abbey after her handshake seemed to be awkwardly missed.

Over 4.1billion people are said to be watching the Queen's funeral today (Sept 19) as it is being televised and live-streamed around the world.

World leaders, the Royal Family, close friends and invited guests filled up Westminster Abbey to pay their respects to the late Queen.

The guests were seen being greeted at the door as they started entering the abbey at around 10am before the service at 11am.

In an awkward clip, which was shared on Twitter by @IainLiddle, a few guests were seen shaking hands with a man who was welcoming them into the service before a blonde woman tried to do the same.

But she ended up being ignored as the man seemed to reluctantly tap her hand as she walked by.

Viewers were left in hysterics over the video, which has gained more 1,200 likes after it was posted on the app with three tick emojis and a cross to represent the handshakes.

In the replies, one user wrote: "Hahaha … she was fuming as well."

Another simply claimed she had been: "Shutdown."

A third commented: "Tad rude that."

A fourth added: "Haha saw that, she was muttering to herself all the way in after that haha."
