This Is What Will Happen When (after) Queen Elizabeth Passes (passed) Away
Operation LONDON BRIDGE has been in the works for years.
The entire royal family has rushed to Queen Elizabeth’s side today as the monarch remains under medical supervision due to her quickly declining health. Buckingham Palace confirmed in a statement this morning that doctors are “concerned” for Her Majesty’s health, and since, reporters dressed in all black have begun crowding around Balmoral Castle, the monarch’s residence in Scotland, where she is currently staying.
Ahead, everything we know about Operation LONDON BRIDGE, the United Kingdom government’s multistep plan for what is to be done when Queen Elizabeth II passes away.
Immediately upon the queen’s death, her private secretary will reportedly call the prime minister to inform her of the news, perhaps with the message, “London Bridge is down,” per documents obtained by Politico.The royal household will issue an official statement informing the staff, civil servants, and the public of the queen’s death, and the news will be announced via an alert on the Press Association wire.
Once the news is confirmed, flags across Whitehall will be lowered to half-mast—ideally within 10 minutes, Politico reported. The Ministry of Defence will arrange for gun salutes to take place, and a national minute of silence will be announced. A service of remembrance will also be arranged at London’s St. Paul’s Cathedral.
The prime minister will be the first member of the government to make a statement on the death. Then, the PM will hold an audience with Prince Charles, who will deliver a broadcast to the nation.
The royal family’s website will be changed to a black background, with a small message confirming the queen’s death, and the U.K. government website will display a black banner, as will all government departmental social media pages.
Internally, the day of the queen’s passing will be referred to as "-Day,” and each day after, until the funeral—which will take place on day 10—will be referred to as "+1,” "+2,” et cetera.
The morning after Queen Elizabeth’s death, Charles will be sworn in as the new sovereign by the Accession Council.
The queen’s coffin will be carried to Buckingham Palace.
If she dies at Balmoral Castle, in Scotland, where she currently is, Operation UNICORN will be activated, per Politico, meaning her coffin will be transported to London via royal train. If that is not possible, Operation OVERSTUDY will come Read More
