alexa Posted March 21, 2022 Share Posted March 21, 2022 Oh please Operation Abbey: The meticulously-orchestrated military-style plan to take the Queen to Prince Philip's memorial service using a helicopter and private screen Ahead of the event, which takes place on March 29, the 95-year-old monarch is expected to be flown 15 minutes by helicopter from Windsor Castle to Buckingham Palace. The head of state will then be driven the short distance from the Palace to Westminster Abbey, reports the Sun on Sunday. The entire Dean's Yard will be sealed off under the plans, which also include six-foot privacy screens and a potential football-style tunnel which would block any photographer's view as she exits her vehicle. Aides then believe she can be delivered into the Abbey at Poets' Corner and needs only a short walk to take her seat in The Sanctuary. Whether she can be seated before the audience arrives rather than arriving last, as is tradition, is also being explored. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
