Although The Queen’s death will become global news in the event of her passing, there are some other vital benchmarks that must take place if she dies. Buckingham Palace itself will have a notice outside which will symbolise The Queen’s passing.
According to Elle, a footman in mourning clothes will step outside of Buckingham Palace and pin a black-edged notice to the gates.
The palace’s own website will also change colour, according to The Guardian.
The palace website will be changed into a single page with the exact same text displayed as on the palace gates.
A radio alert transmission, which is known as “Rats”, will also be activated which is a wartime alarm.

BBC producer Chris Price wrote in 2011 that if a certain song plays on the radio then something “terrible has happened”.
He said: “If you ever hear 'Haunted Dancehall (Nursery Remix)' by Sabres of Paradise on daytime Radio 1, turn the TV on.
“Something terrible has just happened.”
If the Queen’s death is expected, the devastating news will be spread by the main TV channels.
