The sisters who starred as the infamous twins in the horror movie “The Shining” were among throngs of people that waited in line to pay their respect to Queen Elizabeth II over the weekend.

Lisa and Louise Burns, who played the Grady twins in the 1980 flick based on the Stephen King novel, documented their long wait to bid farewell to the Monarch who died earlier this month at 96.

The identical twins, now in their 50s, shared on social media their journey on the miles-long queue that took hours before reaching her Majesty’s coffin in London.

“In the Queue! To view the Queen Lying in State,” the pair tweeted Sunday.

They also shared how they were given a piece of cake “from the friends of Holy Trinity church on Dockhead” and then four hours after they got on line said they only had a few more hours to go before reaching the coffin of the late Royal.

Millions watched the Queen’s funeral across the UK and billions around the world as more than 2,000 people crammed into Westminster Abbey Monday before she was laid to rest in Windsor.

The Burns twins gained fame in their teens after their role in the frightening film that also starred Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall. It’s ranked one of the greatest films of all time.

Lisa and Louise were among other notable people who waited patiently to see the Queen’s coffin at the Lying-in-State, including soccer star David Beckham.
