A very strange moment during the UK's live coverage of the Queen's funeral on Monday has gone viral after it left royal fans shocked and creeped out.

UK broadcaster ITV was sharing live footage of the Queen's hearse with a male commentator explaining what was happening, however, it was another mystery voice that shocked viewers.

A female voice comes out of nowhere and whispers the phrase, "The death is irreversible and the fact that she's trapped..."

The male commentator began talking, realising something else was coming through, then briefly paused before continuing on, never acknowledging what had happened.

While some believed it to be another reporter reading their script on set or a crossed line, others claimed it to be Princess Diana's ghost. Very spooky indeed.

"Sounds like something you get from those ghost hunting programs where they record disembodied voices," one Twitter user wrote.

"'Death is irreversible,' wtf was that ITV," a shocked viewer added, while another wrote, "Well, this has well and truly creeped me out!"

"What was this!" a fourth said. "Why aren’t we all talking about this!!"

"That’s Princess Diana welcoming QEII [Queen Elizabeth II]," another viewer wrote.

"Now I can't sleep," one user added.

"Sounds like an anchor or reporter practice reading their script (possibly making revisions) while on set," someone else said. "They'd assume their mic was turned down while someone else was reporting over the live feed from the helicopter (live reporter in heli?). When I worked in TV, saw it often."

However, there is a perfectly reasonable explanation.

Grief expert Julia Samuel, a friend of Princess Diana and Prince George's godmother, had been on the show earlier and spoke of death being "irreversible" when they went back on the air.

"I heard it live, it was the grief counsellor who went on to say death is irreversible after when they went back onto air," one Twitter user shared.

So, thankfully, the case is closed, and we can all sleep soundly tonight!
