The Egyptian Elizabeth would have died of a heart attack and the news would not have been given to the subjects yet: the rumors run on the web, but this is obviously a hoax. Here is what The Palace commented on Twitter Sunday night several posts had appeared that claimed that the Queen was dead. False accounts were used with counterfeit Sky News BBC logos that confirmed the news. In a few minutes the #TheQueen had become trend topic on Twitter, with more than 200 thousand mentions.
The denial came from Charlie Proctor, Editor-in-chief of Royal Central: “I see we have reached that time of the year when I have to dispel the rumors about His Majesty’s death. The queen is not dead. She is alive, well, and looks forward to hosting President Trump and other world leaders at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday to welcome NATO ».
