Same here but I have a bad feeling about his for some reason. why else would the Royal family be called at this time of night? and now Police and Press are now gathering outside

There is a lot of (unconfirmed) speculation on twitter that something has happened to Philip.

No one really knows yet. Only confirmed information is that an emergency meeting has been called in the middle of the night for all of the Queen's staff- from Balmoral and other residences as well.

Anyone reading this should take this with a big grain of salt right now, but twitter rumors are flying that Prince Philip has passed away. If true, according to protocol plans released several years ago, it would be announced after 8AM.

Let's all hope that this is not true and that the rumor mill is wrong.

At the moment it is all unconfirmed Twitter posts. Would the Press gather outside BP on these sorts of reports, though? In case of the death of any senior Royal I thought British news outlets including the BBC were informed immediately in code. Perhaps Prince Philip is ill?

I hope nothing big has happened but I doubt a regular meeting would be held at this time.

Reports are on some news sites that roads around Buckingham Palace are being closed by the police, that various outside broadcast vans are setting up and that members of the Royal Family have been called.

No official confimation, though some photos posted.

Is it 3.30am in London at the moment? This breaking in the early hours of the morning adds weight that it is more than just about renovations.

It's on all news reports here in Australia. I have a feeling it's Phillip. I'm sure if it wasn't serious they would be saying something to calm everyone down.

Buckingham Palace is trending on Twitter.

But if it's the death of the Queen isn't that news passed on straight away? Is there a news blackout on BP websites from now until 8am London time? I guess that we will have to await an official announcement.

If Prince Philip has passed away, it's very sudden. He had an engagement at Lord's Cricket Ground just yesterday. :-(

Didn't they say during the Christmas cold it wouldn't be announced until 8am even if it's the Queen? They would wake up the royals but it would not be announced until the morning if something happened at night.

Maybe an abdication announcement? This is right on the heels of what was described as an "unusually long" meeting between Theresa May and HM today.

It's local Election Day in the U.K. today it has got to be something big as they would avoid announcing anything today and wouldn't be calling staff who would be voting locally to a emergency meeting.
