The Daily Fail has just reported that an unusual emergency meeting of senior staff has been called at BP and servants in the Royal Household from as far away as Balmoral have been told to attend. They will be addressed by the Queen's Private Secretary and the Lord Chamberlain, who heads the Royal Household admin.

If it's not about security or something important but routine then it is probably to do with the health of the Queen or Prince Philip, who is coming up to his 96th birthday in June. I may be completely wrong and I hope I am, but...!

We don't know what's happening. All sorts of things are being reported on Twitter that are unconfirmed at the moment. # Buckingham Palace Twitter is trending at the moment! I do think that a meeting called in the middle of the night for all senior staff to attend is unusual, and if it is a health issue it may concern Prince Philip. However, if anything has happened there will probably be an official announcement at around 8am London time, and so I guess we have to wait.

comment:

Gooner, London, United Kingdom, 48 minutes from now
The Queen has always believed that Britain should be a republic and she is to announce that she will stand as a presidential candidate, knowing that all DM readers will vote for her. Long live President Windsor!

Apparently the French media are reporting that the Duke of Edinburgh has passed away, I don't think that would be true as BP hasn't said anything. I'm presuming that the people on twitter are just being twits because something is going on.

If the Duke has passed, we'll be finding out after we wake up; for all we know the French media might well be correct.

The comments in the DM are getting funnier by the minute; maybe HM is divorcing, abdicating, and then running off to Balmoral with one of her corgis.

I think something is happening though what Who knows. BBC regional staffers were reportedly called in about an hour ago. There should be an official announcement at around 8am-8-30 am London time if it is anything big. Unconfirmed Twitter reports that BBC staffers are being texted reminders about protocols in case of a royal death. But who knows. The Wessexes are out of the country. Charles has engagements in Scotland today.

They are saying that the Queen and PP are ok so I really wonder what the heck is going on?

The corgis have taken the palace hostage or the corgis have been kidnapped.

If the meetint with May was 30 min longer it may not mean death but abdication or retiring.

NEVER *despise* correction,for those who correct you ,truly LOVE you .They are willing to displease you and possibly lose your friendship ,rather than see you destroyed. Those who *despise* you ,on the other hand ,will allow you to FAIL...because what do they care ?

Every praise is not good and every criticism is not evil..!
