All members of staff for the royal family across the whole country were called to an emergency meeting that will take place at Buckingham Palace.
The most senior officer of the Royal Household – Lord Chamberlain – will address the meeting, which the subject matter is yet unknown.
This extremely rare meeting has sparked concerns for Prince Phillip who is aged 95 and believed to have several health concerns.
Twitter took to the news throughout the early morning:

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