Buckingham Palace flag not at half mast

BUCKINGHAM Palace's flag is flying at full mast this morning as speculation mounts over a "mystery meeting" called by the Queen.

Fears for Prince Philip and the Queen have been voiced after all senior staff and aides were called to an unexpected meeting at the Palace this morning.

Despite speculation the flag remains at full mast, suggesting all is well at the palace and indicating the Queen is home.

The flag is flown at half mast after royal deaths and during times of national mourning.

Buckingham Palace is yet to give an official announcement, but said there is "no cause for alarm".

Staff will be addressed by the Lord Chamberlain, the most senior officer of the Royal Household, and Private Secretary Sir Christopher Geidt shortly, according to the Daily Mail.

Similar meetings are occasionally called by the Palace "but the way this has been done at the eleventh hour is highly unusual", a source told the Mail.

The news sparked speculation on social media that an announcement concerning the Queens, 91, or Prince Philip, 95, could be imminent.

An official announcement is expected after the meeting has taken place.

Prince Philip was pictured yesterday looking happy and healthy as he opened a new stand at Lord's cricket ground.

Meanwhile The Queen me with Theresa May to mark out the date for the General Election.
