Although unlikely don't forget that the Royals can sometimes get dragged into things that don't start with them...remember Charles and Camilla's car being attacked by "student tuition fee" protestors. An issue that had nothing to do with them but once people get angry on the streets anything can become a target.

That said, there are plenty of pictures of BP being centre of protests while the royal standard is flying. I suspect if the RF were moved out of London, especially for more than just a night or two in the initial aftermath, it would be because of more than just a few protestors. Some have suggested the "leaking" of these plans are part of scare tactics to suggest than in the even of no-deal Brexit we would see the breakdown of law and order, looting, food shortages etc.
In reality there will be at most a few protests which may go via BP and a few people may throw things, cause trouble for a few nights. If they are worried about that then don't forget that the Mall is regularly closed to traffic and wouldn't be impossible to close to the public.

The Queen saw first hand that the motto "Keep Calm and Carry On" got her parents through the War and suspect she feels the same motto will get her through this blip.

I know Diana after the divorce was offered Police protection but decided against it. However if she had accepted it would this have been permanent even if she had re-married? This is because if Diana was alive today you would be in the position of both Diana and Camilla having police protection.

I know this is just speculation and we'll never know but if Diana was still alive today and Charles had married Camilla or someone completely new (which would have been very unlikely). Interest in Diana in a royal sense could have been gradually reduced as there was a new Princess of Wales and a royal replacement for Diana who would be the former Princess of Wales?

Some sort of police protection would have been offered for as long as there was perceived to be a threat to Diana's security. I am sure that, for example, the Middleton's have more security than you or I, even if its just specific phone number to call the police if there is a problem.

She may not have had "Royal protection" officers if she re-married but would have had some level of protection while in the UK, all of which would be based on the threat assessment to her. NO police protection is permanent as it all based on the threat assessment of that person - for example some royals considered senior now and getting 24/7 protection will probably not get such protection in a decade or two if their public profile is considerably lower. I suspect, for example, by then Anne Andrew and the Wessex's will get similar protection to that the Queen's cousins get now. `likewise as you say, Diana's profile could well have reduced over time to a point where 24/7 protection was considered unnecessary. That said it all depends on the threat to that individual.
