Illness caused the Monarch to delay travel and miss annual Christmas church service
Buckingham Palace has confirmed that the Queen is not dead, contrary to some speculation on social media.
A palace spokesperson told The Independent the Queen “continues to recover from a heavy cold”.
Concerns over the Monarch’s health have been mounting as her ill health caused her to alter her seasonal plans.
But a fake Twitter account posing as a BBC News page sent a message on 29 December which claimed the Queen had died.
It said: “BREAKING: Buckingham Palace announces the death of Queen Elizabeth II at the age of 90. Circumstances are unknown. More to follow.”
