Queen Elizabeth II’s entire staff from across the country has been summoned to an emergency meeting at Buckingham Palace in London today.
Servants will reportedly be addressed by the Royal Household’s most senior officer Lord Chamberlain and Her Majesty’s Private Secretary Sir Christopher Geidt. The meeting, called suddenly and described as “highly unusual”, sent the rumour mill and social media into a concerned frenzy that bad news is imminent.
However royal watchers said the announcement isn’t to do with a death, or even the health of the Queen or Prince Philip. Social media erupted in panic as word of the large-scale meeting spread, with many offering theories about the announcement, from abdication to far more serious issues. The Mirror reports that even the most trusted of staff were left in the dark as to what the meeting will be about.
