With Brexit plans still in uncertainty and the risk of limited supplies with a no-deal for the United Kingdom leaving the European Union, plans have been put into effect as to how to protect the Royal Family.
According to The Times, emergency plans from the Cold War are being “repurposed” which includes Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip being moved out of London “to a secret location.”
Experts worry about the “worst case” scenario involving riots because of a lack of food and medicine.
A former protection officer for the Royal Family, Dai Davies, agrees with the plans.
“If there were problems in London, clearly you would remove the royal family away from those key sites,” he said.
The plans during the Cold War were called “Operation Candid” and involved moving members of the family to different country homes throughout the country. Another part of the plan was to move them to the Royal Yacht Britannia which has since been decommissioned.
Conservative Brexit supporter, Jacob Rees-Mogg does not believe such actions will be put into place pointing out that the late Queen Mother made a point of staying in the capital with her husband, King George VI because “The Monarch’s place is always in the capital.”
