Rumors were swirling today that Queen Elizabeth had died from her latest bout with COVID.
Instagram account “Hollywood Unlocked” started a firestorm today when they published a post claiming that a source close to the Royal Palace confirmed that the Queen had passed away.
Alas, that is not true, the Queen is alive, but Palace sources say she’s not in good shape.
Apparently, her condition is still very delicate, and the family is reportedly preparing for the worst.
Radar Online reported that Queen Elizabeth is still alive. Radar is told she has not passed away, despite rumors, but she’s in “bad shape.”
According to our sources, the Royal Family is “making final plans” amid the 95-year-old’s health struggle. The report surrounding Queen Elizabeth’s death flooded Twitter on Tuesday after Hollywood Unlocked claimed insiders told them she had lost her life.
While Radar has confirmed she’s still alive, we’ve learned the family “is getting ready for the worst.”
“They desperately don’t want her to end like this,” our insiders say.
The news comes two days after Buckingham Palace revealed she had tested positive for COVID-19. At the time, the representative for the palace said she was experiencing “mild cold-like symptoms” and would continue with “light duties.”
“She will continue to receive medical attention and will follow all the appropriate guidelines,” the palace’s statement read on Sunday, adding that this week’s engagements would be decided “at the time.”
Queen Elizabeth was reportedly scheduled to attend British Vogue editor Edward Enninful’s wedding today. Royal correspondent Omid Scobie shot down her death rumors moments ago.
“No, that (now trending) rumor that started on Instagram is not true,” he wrote on Twitter. That didn’t stop “The Queen Died” from trending on Twitter.
Hopefully, this will serve as a lesson for publications to not jump the gun on rumors.
Especially when it deals with a person’s life.
