Buckingham Palace has denied reports that the Queen or Prince Philip are in ill health, after an emergency meeting at Buckingham Palace was called in the early hours of this morning.

Royal staff from around the country were called to the palace for a meeting led by the Lord Chamberlain, the most senior official of the Royal Household, and the Queen’s private secretary Sir Christopher Geidt. It is reportedly set to take place at 10am this morning, with staff from royal residences at Balmoral, Windsor Castle and Sandringham in attendance.

As news spread of the meeting, ‘Buckingham Palace’ began to trend to Twitter, with social media users speculating that a major announcement regarding key members of the royal family was imminent.

The BBC reports that their royal correspondent Peter Hunt ‘understands the meeting is not about the health of either the Queen or Duke of Edinburgh,’ and that these internal royal meetings tend to take place about once a year.

The Queen and Prince Philip appeared to be in good health when carrying out their royal duties earlier this week.
