A British newspaper on Sunday said it had learnt of plans to move the royal family, including Her Majesty, safe locations away from London.
The Sunday Times said, quoting an unnamed source from the government’s Cabinet Office:-
“These emergency evacuation plans have been in existence since the Cold War. But, they have now been re-purposed in the event of civil disorder following a no-deal Brexit”.
Not only one, but many UK newspapers said it had learnt of plans to move the royal family. That also included Queen Elizabeth, to safe locations away from London. Britain’s government is struggling to get parliamentary support for a Brexit transition agreement with the EU.
The UK government and businesses are preparing contingency plans for a ‘no-deal’ Brexit.
Business groups have already warned of widespread disruption if there are lengthy delays to EU imports. It could be due to new customs checks, and even possible shortages of food and medicine. Last month an annual speech by the Queen was widely interpreted in Britain as a call for politicians to reach agreement over Brexit.
