Queen crisis: Buckingham Palace’s ‘golden triangle’ crisis talks over Queen’s independence | Royal | News


Queen Elizabeth II is meant to maintain a neutral stance on political matters. Her role as constitutional monarch depends on it. However, there are fears a Brexit crisis could force Her Majesty into politics. Here’s how her “golden triangle” of advisors are working to save her from the political crisis.

While the Queen’s royal prerogative means she must oversee the comings and goings of British prime ministers, she is not meant to decide who the leader should be.

A vote of no confidence in current Prime Minister Boris Johnson proposed by Tory rebels and Remainers, threatens to put Her Majesty in a very difficult position.

The Conservatives currently hold a very slim majority in Parliament so if Boris Johnson loses a no confidence vote then any number of people could try to take his place.

There has been a suggestion that the Queen may be forced to step in to appoint a new leader, something which her advisors are working very hard to avoid.

The Sunday Times reported that talks have been taking place between The Queen’s Private Secretary, Edward Young, the Cabinet Secretary, Sir Mark Sedwill and Peter Hill, the Prime Minister’s Principal Private Secretary.

The three men are known as “the golden triangle” and are working to ensure the Queen won’t have to make any decisions over Brexit.

A source told the Times: “The royal household wants to manage this in a way that doesn’t damage the ongoing, long-term position of the crown.”

Buckingham Palace wants to make sure Parliament decides who should become the next PM, without the need for The Queen to step in.

Royal insiders have claimed the Queen feels politicians in the United Kingdom have an “inability to govern” leaving the monarch “dismayed.”

According to the Sunday Times, The Queen made the comments at a private event shortly after David Cameron resigned and the UK voted to leave the European Union.

Following reports she may have to intervene in Brexit, a royal source has claimed the Queen has become increasingly frustrated with the political climate.

The source said: “I think she’s really dismayed. I’ve heard her talking about her disappointment in the current political class and its inability to govern correctly.

“She expressed her exasperation and frustration about the quality of our political leadership, and that frustration will only have grown.”

The Queen may even have to cut summer holiday at Balomoral short if a vote of no confidence goes a head.

While the monarch usually stays in Scotland until October she may be forced to return to London early if Boris Johnson is sacked ahead of Brexit on October 31.
