The Queen ‘will be evacuated’ in the event of no-deal Brexit riots

There's a plan in place for the monarch

As the 29th March looms, some are speculating that that there will be no-deal Brexit riots, and if this is the case the royal family will be removed from London for their own safety, according to an insider.

During the cold war, plans were put in place to ensure that the Queen and her family would be relocated in the event of rioting, and now that same plan has been ‘repurposed’ to protect the royals in the event of ‘civil disorder’ following a no-deal Brexit.

A cabinet office source told The Sunday Times: ‘These emergency evacuation plans have been in existence since the Cold War, but have now been repurposed in the event of civil disorder following a no-deal Brexit.’

The paper also revealed that Dai Davies, the ex-police officer formerly in charge of royal protection, believes the Queen will be removed from London if tensions rise.

He said: ‘If there were problems in London, clearly you would remove the royal family away from those key sites.’

During her annual Christmas Day speech, Queen Elizabeth called for the nation to come together despite our differences. She told 6.3 million viewers that  ‘peace on earth and goodwill to all’ is ‘needed as much as ever’ and highlighted the importance of people with opposing views remaining respectful to one another.

While she is not permitted to take make political comments, many believe that she was referring to the divide caused by Brexit as she asked the UK to find ‘common ground’ and ‘never lose sight of the bigger picture.’
