Queen Elizabeth is already in her advanced years and she has sparked various health concerns in the past months.
She's one of the most prominent figures in the world, so it's not shocking to know that the firm has planned all the details of her funeral in advance. However, according to a report, the Queen's death plans accidentally leaked.
Queen Elizabeth II's Death Plans Accidentally Emailed To Member Of The Public
An inquiry has been launched after a Welsh official accidentally leaked the plans for the Queen's death. Letters and security pamphlets marked "official sensitive" were emailed to a member of the public by an official by mistake, Express reported.
The leak also included a letter from a top U.K. civil servant expressing concern that a news website had disclosed confidential details about procedures for the Queen's funeral. Aside from that, security guidance was also allegedly emailed to a member of the public in error.
Due to the incident, the Welsh government is investigating a "potential security breach." However, it insisted that no "operational information" was revealed in the leak.
"Whilst the email did not contain any operational information, it was marked 'official sensitive' and should not have been shared," the Welsh government’s most senior civil servant, Dr. Andrew Goodall, said in a statement, per Express.
"We take the issue of information and data security very seriously and this is now being investigated as a potential security breach. We are unable to comment further."
The leaked documents revealed how ministers would be informed of the Queen's passing and laid out the proper protocol for social media activity. The leak happened last year and Dickie Arbiter, the sovereign’s official spokesman, called the leak “irresponsible and insensitive.” He also demanded to fire the person behind the leakage of the secret plan.
