Royal Shock: Queen Elizabeth to be evacuated in case of Brexit unrest.

Queen Elizabeth

A British newspaper on Sunday said it had learnt of plans to move the royal family, including Her Majesty, safe locations away from London.


Last month, a speech by the 92-year-old reigning monarch was widely interpreted in the UK as a call for politicians to reach agreement over Brexit.
The British officials have revived ‘Cold War’ emergency plans to relocate the royal family should there be riots in London. However, these riots will only take place in London, if the United kingdom suffers a disruptive departure from the European Union next month.

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.

Jacob Rees-Mogg, a conservative lawmaker, told to the tabloids that he believed the plans showed unnecessary panic by officials. He said so while referring to the time when the senior royals had remained in London during World War II bombing.

However, the present scenario seems a bit different.

An ex-police officer formerly in charge of royal protection, Dai Davies, expected Her Majesty would be moved out of London. Only if, there was unrest. He also mentioned that this step would be taken keeping in mind the her security.

Dai Davies said: “If there were problems in London, clearly you would remove the royal family. You would move them far away from those key sites. It would be for their own safety. We cannot risk putting the royal family at that place”.
