And no offense but why would they talk to NZ and not others.

NZ news and CTV are not likely to have a scoop. If the palace has actually spoken it would be to BBC. They aren't going to speak to foreign press first.

If the Vancouver time is right for an announcement, that is 2 hours. They are an hour behind me and it is 11pm here.

"Lots of hysterical speculation about a Buckingham Palace announcement. There *is* a meeting today. But it's not -as some say- due to a death"

I dont know, the CTV journalist is verified. Why would she lie about talking to BP?

I tink we should also just wait and see. we well know in a couple hours for sure. To much speculation going on. Could be nothing.

But I think if there was a death only cert reporters would know this. Maybe I am wrong. Wel well knows soon for sure either way.

And all he has said is an announcement is to be made at 12 midnight Vancouver time. Nothing else. It is very possible a general release was sent to all media outlets saying an announcement will be made at this time.

Unlike other sources, CYV is not claiming to have spoken or have inside info. Simply that an announcement is pending.

Australian TV crossing live soon to their reporter who is among what they say are the crowds gathering outside Buckingham Palace.

Whatever it is, its big enough to warrant an pull everyone out of bed at 4am. Does "staff" include members of the royal family? Also, how do we even know an emergency meeting was called in the first place?

It has been known for years that 'when' the title 'merges' with the Crown the intention is that it will be recreated for Edward.

For it to merge with the Crown both The Queen and Philip have to have passed away as Charles is Philip's heir and would inherit all his titles. He would never use them however as he has more senior titles to use.

We have a thread elsewhere to discuss the different scenarios that could happen to the Edinburgh title.

Saw a tweet earlier from a regional BBC staffer complaining about being called in early to work for something that can't be reported until 8am. This was when it was still 430 am.

I'm guessing a scandal is about to break although I've no idea what kind of scandal would require all staff for an emergency meeting.

A woman reported on Twitter that there are a lot of police around BP, and they're moving people along.

Exactly. None of these news reporters know what is happening. They do everything yo the book. The press office isn't about to release any information until an official announcement. As said at Christmas, even the death of the queen would not warrant an announcement earlier.

"I'm expecting there to be some sort of announcement from Buckingham Palace later after a meeting of all staff there this morning."

Is part of the protocol leaking that people are being reminded of the protocol?

We've just had the live cross to a reporter outside Buckingham Palace on Australian TV.

He spoke with Palace officials twenty minutes ago, and was told no announcement will be made for an hour and a half.

Media is gathering.
