The Queen Is Not Dead: Long Live The Queen!

A BBC journalist erroneously announced that the Queen was in hospital on Twitter today, after a ‘technical rehearsal’ for the Queen’s death ended in major embarrassment for the corporation. It subsequently emerged, however, that the Queen did indeed attend hospital this morning for a pre-scheduled routine annual check up, leading to whispers of a conspiracy on Twitter. In a statement the palace said, “The Queen this morning attended her annual medical check-up at the King Edward VII Hospital in London. This was a routine, pre-scheduled appointment. The Queen has now left the hospital.” How very reassuring.
