Reports of Queen Elizabeth II‘s death are greatly exaggerated.
“BREAKING: Queen Elizabeth is being treated at King Edward 7th Hospital in London. Statement due shortly.”
Which was shortly followed up with:
“Queen Elizabrth has died.”
The only problem here being that Khawaja had missed a previous internal e-mail sent by BBC News management to staff informing everyone that a drill was to be carried out to test the newsroom’s readiness to respond to a so-called “category-one obituary.”
False Alarm: Have deleted previous tweets!!
