One choirboy managed to steal the show as the entire world tuned in to watch the burial of Queen Elizabeth II.

Royalty and foreign leaders attended the event at Westminster Abbey in London to honour Britain’s longest-reigning head of state.

On September 8 at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, Elizabeth passed away at the age of 96. Her funeral was a solemn event distinguished by centuries of tradition.

The Westminster Abbey Choir, which consists of 12 adult singers and 30 choirboys between the ages of 8 and 13, performed music. James O’Donnell served as their musical director.

Three hymns, two anthems, and two brand-new compositions by Scottish composer Sir James MacMillan were sung by the choir.

People watching the funeral from home saw one of the choirboys, and because of his commitment to the song, they dubbed him the “MVP” of the service.

“Shout out to the little choir Ginger that was vibing. My boy knows this is being watched by a billion and he’s all in,” commented one person on Twitter.

A second added: “The little ginger kid in the choir looks like he’s singing from the depths of his soul.”

A third wrote: “The wee ginger lad front left row of the choir is stealing the show. Bravo, wee man,” and a fourth tweeted, “The ginger choir boy is the MVP.”

One Twitter user claimed to know the choirboy and referred to him as Barnaby.

“An aside but this choir boy (ginger hair) is called Barnaby & he was born when my daughter was & his mum & my wife used to walk the streets of Bow in E[ast] London together as both babies didn’t sleep! He’s now a choir boy in Westminster, my daughter watching Netflix!” wrote Twitter user @duncanshrubsole.

When Westminster Abbey was a Benedictine monastery in the late 14th century, the choir was founded.

It was designed to play at regular services as well as important royal and official events that take place at the abbey, like the queen’s diamond jubilee service and the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

On Monday at 10.44 a.m., the queen’s coffin departed Westminster Hall in a brief procession to the abbey, where royalty, world leaders, and other significant people attended her funeral.

Following the casket were Princes William and Harry, King Charles III, Princess Anne, Princes Andrew and Edward, and her children.
