In a statement, the Prime Minister’s Office says renowned Quebec artist Gregory Charles played the piano in the lobby of the London hotel, while others, including Trudeau, joined in.

A 14-second video posted to Twitter, which has garnered nearly a million views, appears to show Trudeau in a T-shirt singing part of British rock band Queen’s legendary song.

The Prime Minister’s Office says Trudeau has “participated in various activities to pay homage” to the late monarch over the past 10 days, and the entire Canadian delegation attended the state funeral today in London.

The Canadian delegation also included former governors general Michaelle Jean and David Johnston, as well as former prime ministers Kim Campbell, Jean Chretien, Paul Martin and Stephen Harper, but it’s unclear which members took part in the musical session.
