Noel Fielding’s Heartbreaking, Personal Tribute To Queen Elizabeth




Anyone familiar with “The Great British Bake Off” knows it’s just as popular overseas as it is in the United States. And following Queen Elizabeth II’s Sept. 8 death, the “GBBO” judges are taking to social media to pay their respects. Longtime host Paul Hollywood shared a tribute for the queen on Instagram, as did host Noel Fielding.

Fielding, who’s known for his work on “The Mighty Boosh,” became the wildcard host added to the “GBBO” cast in 2017, per The Guardian. After the news of the queen’s death became public, Fielding shared a new piece of his artwork on Instagram featuring a drawing of the queen standing on the moon with the caption “Rest in peace x.” Rahul Mandal, the “GBBO” Season 9 winner, posted a heartfelt comment on Fielding’s post, stating she remained in fans’ hearts “with her bright, encouraging smile.”

The drawing was a unique tribute, yet some followers of Fielding didn’t support the post. One user stated “I thought you were better than this,” while another referred to Fielding as “artistically open-minded but politically reactive.” Still, many social media followers appreciated Fielding’s depiction of Queen Elizabeth II, as the world at large copes with the loss.
