Death Bed? Queen Elizabeth remains indoors for 10th consecutive day...
UK EXPRESS --
Buckingham Palace were forced to confirm that the Queen is not dead after a sick Twitter hoax claimed that she had passed away while battling a cold.
A spokesman said: "The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh continue to recover from their heavy colds."
Hours before, a spoof BBC news account tweeted: “BREAKING: Buckingham Palace announces the death of Queen Elizabeth II at the age of 90. Circumstances are unknown. More to follow.”
The account was later suspended, but not before social media users began speculating that a “media blackout” was covering up the news until it could be reported properly at 8am.
