Most stories of the queen stepping down center around her age, she turned 94 in February, but who she hands the throne to changes from story to story. New Idea reported a major royal leak of the queen’s last will on its front page but delivered no details whatsoever.
This tabloid makes a habit of bait-and-switch covers. In this case, the article itself was about Her Majesty isolating at Windsor Castle during the pandemic, which was public knowledge when the story came out.
There was speculation about physically where the queen keeps her will. Scintillating. There’s not much to say about this article as it didn’t have much to say at all either. At her age, the queen is at a higher risk for the coronavirus. Preying on her age, OK! reported that Queen Elizabeth would “step down for good” and “hand the reins over to the next generation.”
While it has certainly been a rough year for the queen, between her grandson Prince Harry stepping down and Prince Charles contracting the virus, there’s no hint that she’s considering resignation.
