The Queen is making a personal donation towards helping the millions of people who face starvation in East Africa amid drought and conflict.

The Disasters Emergency Committee's (DEC) East Africa Crisis Appeal seeks to help more than 16 million people "on the brink of starvation and in urgent need of food, water and medical treatment".

"Operation London Bridge:Secret plan for days after the Queen's death"
"She is venerated around the world. She has outlasted 12 US presidents. She stands for stability and order. But her kingdom is in turmoil, and her subjects are in denial that her reign will ever end. That’s why the palace has a plan."

"The Queen isn’t a fan of steeplechasing but she has a runner in the first race at Cheltenham today called Forth Bridge. "

Will the Queen be celebrating at Cheltenham today? | Daily Mail Online

Operation London Bridge has been in existence for a very long time and isn't a recent thing because of any concerns over public reaction or anything. Nothing is ever left to chance with the BRF. They're the epitome of the motto "Be Prepared".

My understanding is that whenever the 'code' words are made public they are changed so that someone can't trigger the mourning etc as a practical joke or as a nuisance action.

The Duke of Norfolk has all these plans in his office and reviews them every few months and updates them every time there is a change in personnel e.g. a change in PM in one of the realms sees an update in the plans so that the right names are notified. He also updates codes etc at the same time so that there aren't too many people out there who know the 'code'.

The palace would rather do something for the Queen and Philip's 70th anniversary than the sapphire jubilee.
I very much doubt either will go unmarked in some way.

Both are serious events to celebrate and although private as she is, the Queen won't want to disappoint!
