There is a tension building inside the British government. They fear, that the time has almost come and Queen Elizabeth’s reign of 66 years might end soon.
And so, the British government has been praying for their reigning monarch.
Some British ministers have become concerned, holding a meeting about their monarch’s healthy and long life. And, that is all as she missed an engagement because she was sick.
All the things that happened at the meeting.
Leaders including the prime minister’s deputy David Lidington, Home Secretary Sajid Javid and parliament leader Andrea Leadsom, all met last week. There, they sat all together, to pray for Her Majesty and her healthy life.
But, this was not all. There was one more thing, that occurred during the meeting. The ministers also ran ‘Castle Dove’. It is an exercise for what happens when Queen Elizabeth dies.
Looks like the British government wants to be ready for every situation that lies before them.
Discussions of the day after the death were reportedly not prompted by any significant worries about the Queen. Although, she missed attendance at a church event last week.
The Buckingham Palace announced that Queen Elizabeth did not attend a service at St. Paul’s cathedral because she was feeling under the weather. But, the media reported that she was believed to be suffering from a summer cold.
Government and the media, both have an extensive plan with an exact routine for mourning and royal succession.
Her Majesty is now 92, and last year the Guardian ran a piece about how the information about her death will be conveyed to the government and the BBC, which is through a general code word ‘London Bridge is down’.
Also, many media outlets have already planned out days and days of coverage. In fact, one station is even rehearsing substituting the name ‘Mrs. Robinson’ for the Queen.
