Buckingham Palace meeting ‘not about health of Queen or Prince Philip’
A meeting of household staff called at Buckingham Palace is not a cause for concern, the BBC understands.
The BBC’s royal correspondent Peter Hunt understands the meeting is not about the health of either the Queen or Duke of Edinburgh.
Officials at the palace have not said what this morning’s meeting, reported to involve all senior staff from across the UK, is about.
Such internal royal meetings usually happen about once a year.
The Queen and Prince Philip both fulfilled engagements on Wednesday.

The Queen met Prime Minister Theresa May at Buckingham Palace to formally agree the dissolution of parliament ahead of the general election, while Prince Philip attended Lord’s Cricket Ground to open a new stand.
Thursday’s meeting will take place at 10:00 BST.
