There has been outrage on social media as a rumour spread around the internet claiming that Her Majesty the Queen had died. It comes as health concerns were raised for the Duke of Edinburgh after his wobble last week, which resulted in him seeking bed rest.
There has been a wide spread rumour on the internet today that Her Majesty passed away. The rumour is thought to have originated from a WhatsApp group, although it is false. There has been no official statement to say that the Queen has passed away.
The United Kingdom government has a protocol in place for when Her Majesty passes away. The entire political system of the United Kingdom will come to a standstill as the country faces one of the most challenging aspects of its history; losing its sovereign. Charles will then take control.
There has been some controversy surrounding Charles taking the throne. Prince Charles is a very controversial figure as well as his wife, Camilla, who have both been eagerly awaiting to take the throne of the United Kingdom. The Queen is the longest serving Monarch in the United Kingdom’s history. As it currently stands, she is alive and well.
