Secret plans leaked
This is what happens after the Queen’s death
09/08/2022, 5:28 PM
According to Buckingham Palace, Queen Elizabeth II is under medical supervision. Because of her 96 years, the time after her death has to be planned better or worse. Corresponding classified documents from “Operation London Bridge” became public in 2021. That’s in it.
Concern for Queen Elizabeth II is growing. As announced by Buckingham Palace, the 96-year-old, who currently resides at her estate at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, is undergoing medical treatment. Crown Prince Charles and his son Prince William are on their way to Scotland. Charles is accompanied by his wife, Duchess Camilla. Prince Harry and his wife will also visit the queen, the palace confirms. Many people are now wondering: What happens immediately after the death of Queen Elizabeth II.?
A year ago, the newspaper “Politico” revealed secret plans that would be hidden under the name “Operation London Bridge”. The procedure stipulates, among other things, that Prime Minister Liz Truss must be immediately informed of the death of the monarch. They in turn will inform important cabinet members by telephone according to a strict protocol. Only then will an announcement be made to the public and an email will be sent to other ministers and senior officials.
All flags will then be flown at half-mast in all public buildings and the royal family’s official website will be painted black with a short death certificate. The websites of all ministries will be adorned with a black banner and all tweets and messages will be suspended until Truss has spoken on live television – which must be done as soon as possible.
Not the first leak
At 6 p.m. sharp, the new king, the current Prince Charles, will address his people. A service will also be held on the night of the death – or the following day, depending on when the death occurred – with the Prime Minister and senior cabinet ministers meeting in St Paul’s Cathedral.
The days leading up to the state funeral are also prepared – sometimes even meticulously. It is true that Charles is king as soon as his mother dies. However, it will not be officially proclaimed until the next morning – “D-Day+1”. On “D-Day+2” the Queen’s coffin, which most recently resided mainly in Windsor Castle near London, will be transferred to Buckingham Palace in the heart of the capital. “D-Day+3” takes Charles on a journey through all parts of the country. First stop: the Scottish capital Edinburgh.
Different aspects of “London Bridge” also have their own code names. So the enthronement of Prince Charles is called “Spring Tide” (spring tide), and the three-day construction of the queen “Feather” (spring). Meanwhile, preparations for the funeral ceremony at London’s Westminster Abbey are in full swing. Finally, the Queen is buried in Windsor Castle in the small King George VI Memorial Chapel, next to her husband.
Details of this emergency plan have been leaked in the past, but never the full process. It has been reported that after the Queen’s death, the Prime Minister will receive a call from the Royal Family containing only the four words “London Bridge is down”. Hence the name “Operation London Bridge”.
