The Queen to be evacuated in case of Brexit unrest - media

Queen Elizabeth and the royal family could be evacuated from London if Brexit takes a disruptive and ugly turn, according to two British Sunday newspapers.

One unnamed source from Theresa May's team told the Sunday Times that an emergency plan - dating back to the Cold War - may be revived in the event of "civil disorder" if Britain crashes out of the bloc with no-deal.

Last month, the Queen delivered an annual speech to a local women's group, which was widely interpreted as a call for politicians to reach an agreement over Brexit.

With less than eight weeks to the March 29 deadline, the UK government is struggling to get parliamentary support for a transition agreement with the EU.

That's increasingly unsettling businesses, who've warned of widespread disruption if there are lengthy delays to EU imports due to new UK customs checks.

It could mean possible shortages of food and medicine and heightened fears of potential civil unrest.
