UK in danger of losing its head over Scottish independence
Express, Monday 8th Sep 2014
Last night Royal sources said the Queen had “a great deal of concern” that the United Kingdom was on the brink of breaking up. Alarm was triggered in Downing Street and at Buckingham Palace after a YouGov survey showed Alex Salmond’s nationalists are poised to win in the referendum on Scotland’s future on September 18. One Royal source was reported to have said: “The Queen is a unionist. There is a great deal of concern.” Senior aides are worried the monarch will be thrown into a crisis that threatens her status as Scottish head of state.
