A divisive royal biographer announced the Queen’s death early on and has speculated as to the cause.
Lady Colin Chapman, who lives in Castle Goring, Worthing, posted a video on her YouTube channel around 5pm last Thursday claiming the Queen had died.
An hour and a half later, the official announcement came from Buckingham Palace.
Almost 300,000 people watched the video in which Lady Chapman, known as Lady C, first spoke about Her Majesty’s health.
The video then cuts off before Lady C comes back to say: “Having just made this video, it is with great sadness that I have to inform you that events have once again overtaken your plans and I have been properly informed that the Queen died at 2.37pm this afternoon.
“And that the reason the announcement has not yet been made is that they are waiting for Harry and Meghan to arrive in Balmoral after which the announcement will be made.”
“I think we should be very grateful to have had such a wonderful monarch. And I think we can also be thankful that her death was relatively painless — bone cancer is no fun.
“But she was fortunate enough to develop the lesser form of bone cancer, and she retained her courage and vitality practically to the end.”
The Queen’s cause of death has not been confirmed despite Lady C’s claims.
The controversial author has written seven books about the royal family, including biographies of the Princess of Wales and the Queen Mother.
She shared opinion after defending Prince Andrew in a fiery interview with Piers Morgan in May.
Piers slammed the prince, saying he shouldn’t be able to attend the Queen’s platinum jubilee because he paid for a civil sexual assault lawsuit brought against him.
Prince Andrew has settled out of court for £12million.
“Total nonsense,” said Lady C at the time.
“Piers, with all due respect, since when is this a country where you are guilty until proven innocent.
“The reality is that in this country you are innocent until proven guilty.”
Lady C was publicly fired after appearing on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here in 2015.
She left halfway for medical reasons and recently opened a pub in Worthing.
