    'No cause for alarm' for Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip



    There is no reason to be alarmed about the health of Queen Elizabeth II or Prince Philip, despite a flurry of speculation triggered by an earlier newspaper report.

    The Daily Mail reported a "highly unusual" emergency meeting had been called in the early hours of Thursday, with all royal staff called back to Buckingham Palace.

    A source inside the Palace confirmed that the all-staff meeting would take place, but said it was not unusual.

    The source said such meetings take place on occasion, usually once or twice per year.

    A separate source told the Reuters news agency there was "no cause for alarm", while a palace official told the Associated Press there was "no cause for concern".

    The 91-year-old Queen and Philip, who turns 96 next month, have trimmed their workload in recent years but still regularly carry out official duties.

    The royal couple have suffered recent health scares, and developed severe colds over Christmas that forced the Queen to miss the traditional Christmas Service.

    Prince Philip was also treated in hospital in 2012 after suffering a bladder infection, an illness that overshadowed the latter stages of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

    However, both appeared to be in good health yesterday. The Queen met Prime Minister Theresa May at the Palace and Philip made an appearance at Lord's Cricket Ground.

    ... the mind wonders as to the real possibilities.

    Phil has just announced he's retiring, no more public engagements for him. Why do you dislike Charles? I think he's not too bad considering. At least he doesn't wear mankinis or have people he dislikes thrown out of helicopters.

    The Sun reported his death an hour ago. Good to see them maintaining the levels of fact checking they're famous for.
