Australian TV presenter Allison Langdon was spotted falling asleep on camera amid a lengthy coverage done by her for Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral on Monday.

As news networks around the world covered Britain's longest-serving monarch's funeral, Allison Langdon was presenting for Australian broadcaster the Nine Network in her role as host of Today, The Independent reported.

When viewers shared images of the presenter apparently asleep on social media with her head resting on a folded jacket, Allison Langdon re-shared the image on her Instagram account alongside the caption, "Hour 14. Everything is fine.”

Earlier in the day Allison Langdon shared a post describing the “privilege” of being able to cover Queen Elizabeth II's funeral.

“A privilege to watch the late Queen’s final departure from Buckingham Palace. A woman who meant so many things to so many people. What a farewell," she said.

Queen Elizabeth II was laid to rest on Monday after a private burial in Windsor. The monarch, who died aged 96 on September 8, was buried alongside her late husband, Prince Philip, who died last year, at an intimate ceremony after a grand state funeral attended by world leaders, European royal families and the public gathered.
