Queen Elizabeth to be evacuated in case of Brexit unrest: British media

British officials have revived cold war emergency plans to whisk Royals away to safe locations in the event of no-deal riots in the Capital.

This was reported by two British newspapers on Sunday.

It quoted an unnamed source from the government's Cabinet Office, which handles sensitive administrative issues.

"These emergency evacuation plans have been in existence since the Cold War, but have now been repurposed in the event of civil disorder following a no-deal Brexit", the Cabinet Office source told The Sunday Times.

European leaders have said there will be no renegotiation without a substantial shift in United Kingdom red lines.

Jacob Rees-Mogg, a Conservative MP and keen supporter of Brexit, told the Mail on Sunday he believed the plans to evacuate Royals showed "unnecessary panic" by officials.

Although these plans have been put in place, there is not guarantee that the Queen would leave London.

The results weighed on the Nasdaq, while retailers Walmart Inc, Macy's Inc and Kohl's Corp dropped about 2 percent. At midday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average increased 109.06 points, or 0.44 percent, to 25,108.73.

Business leaders, economists, MPs and cabinet members have all warned of the disruption that could be caused to businesses and public services if the United Kingdom crashes out of the European Union on 29 March before reaching a deal.

If there had been enough warning, they would have then been moved to HMS Brittania, the Queen's personal yacht, which had orders to move to islands off the northwest of Scotland, if conflict seemed inevitable.

Queen Elizabeth II sits with Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh as she delivers her speech during the State Opening of Parliament in the House of Lords at the Palace of Westminster on June 4, 2014 in London, England.

It appears to be the first time Her Majesty has spoken about Brexit, as she toasted to the Dutch Royal Family.

The Queen Mother said: "The children won't go without me".

"As we look toward a new partnership with Europe, it is our shared values and commitment to each other, that are out greatest asset, and demonstrate that even through change, our enduring alliance remains strong, and as innovators, traders and internationalists we look with confidence to the future".
