Queen Elizabeth II allegedly intended to die in Scotland for a shocking reason.
Queen Elizabeth II died while carrying out the promise she made when she ascended to the throne: she would serve the crown for the rest of her life. In 1947, she declared in a speech to commemorate her 21st birthday.
Buckingham Palace eventually marked the end of her reign when she died of “old age” last month.
However, a recent report revealed that the Queen “planned” to die in Scotland for a heartwarming reason: to save the union.
The monarch’s friend told The Daily Beast that Queen Elizabeth II was already aware of her frailty. That is why she chose Balmoral Castle for the “kissing of hands” ceremony with incoming Prime Minister Liz Truss rather than Windsor Castle.
The pal claimed:
“Of course she had access to medics at Balmoral, but nothing like at Windsor. Balmoral is very isolated, but that is where she wanted to be, precisely because she thought the end might be near. She planned to die in Scotland to save the union.”
Former Scottish first minister Alex Salmond expressed similar sentiments in the article but clarified that Queen Elizabeth II’s decision to die in Scotland was not a political statement.
According to Salmond, the Queen chose to die at Balmoral “for the very human reason” of feeling the happiest and most comfortable there. He said she would be pleased with how her decision would ultimately strengthen the union.
In another news update, Reuters confirmed that the trial date for the man accused of threatening to kill the Queen on Christmas Day last year had been set by London’s Old Bailey Court.
Jaswant Singh Chail, 20 accused, has been charged under Britain’s Treason Act. He had a loaded crossbow when he trespassed at her Windsor Castle home. He also had an offensive weapon.
Queen Elizabeth II, King Charles III, and other royal family members were at the castle when the incident occurred.
Following Wednesday’s hearing, Chail is scheduled to appear in the March 20 trial, which is expected to last two to three weeks.
