Operation Menai Bridge: A royal plan under review

In a move that underscores the seriousness of King Charles III's health woes, palace insiders have revealed that "Operation Menai Bridge," the codename for the king's funeral plans, is currently under active review. This comes alongside a document reflecting on Queen Elizabeth II's funeral, aiming to refine the protocol for the next royal departure.

His resilience was on display during his first public appearance at Easter services, a poignant moment that also coincided with what would have been his mother's 98th birthday.
