Vicious rumours claiming that The Queen died on Sunday morning are being shared on social media.

Despite the monarch being alive and well, tens of thousands of people have been flooding social media with rumours that Her Majesty has passed away.

In this latest ‘fake news’ pandemic, an anonymous account claimed that the 93-year-old monarch died on Sunday morning, with a media blackout being in place until Monday morning.

In actual fact, Her Majesty is enjoying a good night of sleep in anticipation of her next big engagement on Tuesday where she will host President Trump and other world leaders at Buckingham Palace for a NATO reception.
