Was Queen Elizabeth just found dead from her COVID-19 infection!
Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!
HU Claim : Queen Elizabeth Dead From COVID-19!
On 22 February 2022, Hollywood Unlocked published an article claiming that Queen Elizabeth was found dead, presumably from her COVID-19 infection!
Truth : Queen Elizabeth Is NOT Dead From COVID-19!
Seriously, some websites are so desperate for views that they would just make up stories like this.
Queen Elizabeth is very much alive, and NOT DEAD from her COVID-19 infection, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Queen Elizabeth Diagnosed With COVID-19 On Sunday
Just for context, Queen Elizabeth II tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday, 20 February 2022.
Fully-vaccinated against the coronavirus, she was said to be suffering from mild cold-like symptoms.
Fact #2 : Queen Elizabeth Continuing With Light Duties
On the very day Hollywood Unlocked claimed that Queen Elizabeth was found dead from COVID-19, Buckingham Palace actually made some announcements about her health :
- she postponed two scheduled virtual audiences, and that
- she was “still experiencing mild cold-like symptoms“, but will “continue with light duties“.
Fact #3 : Queen Elizabeth Had Her Weekly Telephone Call With UK PM
A day after Hollywood Unlocked claimed that Queen Elizabeth was found dead from COVID-19, Buckingham Palace announced that the Queen had her weekly telephone audience with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Fact #4 : Queen Elizabeth Does Not Attend Celebrity Weddings
It is remarkable that a celebrity blogger like Jason Lee seems unaware that Queen Elizabeth II does not attend celebrity weddings.
She’s the Queen of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth realms, not some doozy influencer or celebrity.
Fact #5 : Queen Elizabeth Is Isolating With COVID-19
Even if Queen Elizabeth wanted to, she wouldn’t be able to attend Edward Enninful’s wedding, because she just tested positive for COVID-19!
Buckingham Palace had already pointed out that Queen is isolating at Windsor Castle after testing positive for COVID-19.
Fact #6 : There Are Existing Protocols To Break The News
The United Kingdom has a long history of monarchs dying, with long-established royal protocols in place to break such news.
If Queen Elizabeth II did indeed die, Buckingham Palace will inform UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, after which an announcement would be made on the BBC.
Obviously, that has not happened.
Fact #7 : Kate Middleton Continued Her Tour Of Denmark
If Jason Lee needs more evidence, he would do well to note that the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, continued her tour of Denmark.
Protocol dictates that members of the royal family must always bring a black outfit on overseas trips, in case of a death in the family.
If the Queen had really died, the Duchess of Cambridge would have been on the first flight home.
Instead, she was seen smiling and dressed in a chic gray coat by Catherine Walker, when she met Queen Margrethe and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark.
Fact #8 : Buckingham Palace Does Not Comment On Such Rumours
On Wednesday, 23 February 2022 – the day Buckingham Palace announced the Queen’s call with the UK Prime Minister, a Twitter account (@HollywoodUL) claiming to represent Hollywood Unlocked posted an apology and blamed the mistake on “an intern”.
However, Jason Lee, the owner of the Hollywood Unlocked blog, claimed that it was a fake account, and refused to retract his fake story.
Jason Lee also wrote on Twitter :
He may have to wait a long time, as Buckingham Palace told Newsweek that it never responds to rumours of this kind.
Fact #9 : Jason Lee Removed Two Posts
Despite insisting that he is standing by his sources, Jason Lee quietly deleted two of his Instagram posts on 24 February 2022.
- in the first, he claimed he has never lied, and has never been wrong, that he trusts his sources and he has yet to see an official statement from the palace confirming that he’s wrong
- in the second he called out Variety for suggesting that he was wrong
Fact #10 : Hollywood Unlocked Admits Queen Is Still Alive
On 25 February 2022, Hollywood Unlocked finally admitted that Queen Elizabeth II is very much still alive.
Instead of a contrite apology, they wrote a long non-apology article called “Fact Check: 10 Reasons We Believed Queen Elizabeth Was Dead“.
Basically, it was a long list of excuses why they should not be blamed for not checking their facts, and how they would “never intentionally cause unnecessary pain or grief”. Yeah, sure.
Jason Lee apologised in the article, “… based on Wednesday’s report from the Palace, I can say my sources got this wrong and I sincerely apologise to The Queen and the Royal Family.”
