It is believed that if Philip were to die in the night, the news would not be announced by Buckingham Palace until after 8 a.m. The BBC would be informed first, and tasked with making the official announcement.
Queen Elizabeth passed away in her sleep on Wednesday afternoon after becoming “increasingly frail in recent weeks following a recurrence of a bad chest infection,” according to a Buckingham Palace source.
Prince Charles and Princess Anne were at Buckingham Palace with the Queen at the time of her passing, according to the source, who also confirmed Prince Charles will ascend to the throne:
“There will be a meeting of the Accession Council this evening or maybe tomorrow to proclaim the accession of Prince Charles as the King. His coronation will be held late in the year after a suitable mourning period.”

Whats funny about this...I'm actually more on edge and more closely interested in this development than I was the election. The election was simply choosing which way America wanted to lose. But the possible death of a monarch or her consort that have lasted through 12 presidencies....., and outlived 7 of those presidents....now that's pretty significant...figurehead or not.
