On Sunday, April 21, Queen Elizabeth will be celebrating her 93rd birthday and, by all accounts, is fully expected to be alive for the big party. This is one broad who shows no signs of slowing down. But one of these days, the proverbial candles on the Queen’s cake will be blown out…for good. And when that happens, there’s a secret code phrase palace staff will utter that will follow a chain of command to inform insiders that the Her Majesty has died.
It starts with the Queen’s private secretary, who will repeat this phrase to the Prime Minister over a secure phone line. And that phrase is: “London Bridge is down.”
