Where did the video saying that The Simpsons predicted the Queen’s death come from?
The first images bringing this claim that the cartoon predicted the Queen’s death began to circulate through social networks, especially on TikTok, shortly after September 8, the date on which the monarch passed away.
As the cartoon already has this reputation of actually having predicted some world events, such a statement would make the information spread very fast.
Simpsons predicted the Queen’s death: truth or lie?
In the video, the Queen can be seen lying in a coffin under a plaque with the years of her birth and death.
In another video, Elizabeth II can be seen getting up from an accident with her carriage. On a plaque behind her, you can see the date of death pasted into the background.
However, the images that were used in the videos and allegedly taken from episodes of the show are montages.
- The image showing the monarch lying in a coffin, with her date of birth and death is a tampering with an unofficial episode of the simpsons.
- The scene that shows the Queen getting up from the accident, was taken from the episode “The Regina Monologues” (episode 4 of the 15th season). In this episode, Bart finds a thousand dollar bill and travels to England with his family, where he is involved in an accident with the royal carriage. In the original episode, there is no tag attached to the carriage.
