OK, I have been doing a little digging too, and it would seem that the whole thing started with some announcement on a Irish Radio station early in the morning (yesterday UK time) saying that there would be a Royal Announcement later today. They were immediately instructed to remove that announcement, and a media blackout about all things Royal was put in place.
As they say there is "no smoke without fire". At the moment it is all conjecture as to what even if there will be any Royal announcement at 8am today (UK time, we have just 8 hours to go).
However, and this is just my little view on this, the Queen's pet name for Buck Palace is The Office......because she doesn't own it you see, it is owned by the people/state and is her place of work as Monarch. She owns Sandringham, Balmoral and I think Windsor. Sandringham is well known as her favourite residence. If I were her, and knew I was dying...I wouldn't want to die in The Office either. So maybe this is why she was flown out to Sandringham for Christmas, so she could end her days as anyone would want to, in her own home with all her family around her as they would be at this time of year.
This would also make time for all the necessary arrangements and protocols to be followed and put into place. Not least to prepare the way for a not so popular Queen Camilla.......Princess Diana's death is still too fresh in people's minds here in the UK.
