Among the honoured guests, Royal Family members, and world leaders at Queen Elizabeth II's funeral on Monday, actress Sandra Oh was also in attendance.
Among the estimated four billion people who tuned in to the televised ceremony, some couldn't help but wonder what Sandra, 51, was doing among the delegation.
"What is Sandra Oh doing at the funeral", tweeted one viewer.
"Sandra Oh not disappointing. Lovely outfit", raved a second.
"Why is Sandra Oh at the Queen's funeral?" asked a third. "I thought she'd cameo on Grey's Anatomy again before appearing at... *checks note* Queen Elizabeth's funeral."
And a fourth admitted: "Sandra Oh attending the Queen's funeral was not something I was expecting to see today."

So, why was the Turning Red actress in attendance?
Sandra walked through Westminster Abbey alongside musician Gregory Charles and Olympic gold medallist Mark Tewksbury, as members of the Order of Canada.
The Canadian actress was granted the honour in June 2022 for her 'artistic career filled with memorable stage, television and film roles in Canada and abroad'.
The group of delegates from the Order of Canada were led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie Gregoire Trudeau.
It has also been announced that 19 September will henceforth be marked as a national day of mourning in Canada, following Queen Elizabeth's funeral.
Her Majesty’s funeral will likely be one of the most-watched royal events in history, and billions are expected to tune in around the world to watch Elizabeth II be laid to rest.
Among the other 2,000 or so guests at Monday's ceremony were past prime ministers David Cameron and Boris Johnson, current Prime Minister Liz Truss and US President Joe Biden.
The Queen’s funeral was conducted by the Dean of Westminster, with the likes of Prime Minster Liz Truss and Secretary General of the Commonwealth Patricia Scotland giving readings.
The ceremony closed with a two-minute silence and a performance by the Queen’s personal piper, while the monarch’s coffin arrived at Westminster Abbey on the state gun carriage.
The Queen's coffin will now be transported to Windsor Castle, where she will be privately interred in the King George VI Memorial Chapel alongside her late husband, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, who will be moved from the Royal Vault in St George's chapel.
