The claim that the piano seen behind Queen Elizabeth during her speech belongs to Saddam’s palace

It was claimed in a photo which was shared on social media and sent to teyit.org that the golden piano in the room where Queen Elizabeth made the Christmas speech was stolen from Saddam Hussein’s palace after the Iraq War, and that the Queen spoke in front of the piano intentionally.Nevertheless, the claim that the piano seen behind Queen Elizabeth was brought to Buckingham Palace from Saddam Hussein’s palace after the Iraq War is false. Queen Victoria had the piano built for Buckingham Palace in 1856. The claim was first made by a parody account.
