Just so it's on record, you're saying this story is non-existent. Fair!
If it is real though, you're going to be the dunce here. If it turns out, it's ALL speculation, then I will admit I am a dunce and I will proclaim the dailymail as the dailyfail. Fair enough?
What I won't do, however, is deny the fact that this was hyped from the get go, and it's not just me who bought it. This story is all over the internet and the dailymail is not the only one talking about it. I think the OP has an element of truth to it. Why?? Because the MSM has come out and down-played it in general terms without denying that this "highly unusual" event has occurred. This is what people are sick of. If the "dailymail" caused this hype, then I will scrutinize them from here on out.
Think more critically and be less of a D-bag. For future reference.
Which begs the question why the "11th hour request"?

Is there a source stipulating that as royal protocol? (not annual staff meetings)
Queen Elizabeth II's husband, Prince Philip, will stop carrying out public engagements this fall, Buckingham Palace announced Thursday.
The palace said in a statement that Philip, who is 95, has the full support of the queen in his decision. He will continue heading numerous charitable organizations but will not play an active role attending engagements.
