What happens when the Queen dies

The longest-reigning monarch in British history, Queen Elizabeth II, passed away on Thursday at the age of 96.

Since she caught COVID-19 earlier this year, Elizabeth II, who has been the monarch of Britain for more than 70 years, has been the subject of ongoing worries about her general health.

In any case, the British government has prepared arrangements for how to handle the unfortunate passing of the Monarch if it occurs.

The strategy is known as Operation London Bridge should the Queen pass away in England, but in this instance, Britain will implement Operation Unicorn since it specifies how to manage the Queen’s death should it take place in Scotland.

Operation London Bridge: What is it?

The Prime Minister will be informed that “London Bridge is down” to denote the monarch’s demise when the Queen’s confidential secretary calls her on the day of her death, also known as “d-day.”

The 15 nations where the Queen is the Head of State will then receive the information. Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, the Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Canada, Grenada, Jamaica, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, and St. Vincent are a few of them.
