Queen expresses fears about UK`s break-up
London: Queen Elizabeth II fears a referendum on independence in Scotland could lead to a break-up of the United Kingdom.
The monarch is so worried that she has held a crisis meeting with Prime Minister David Cameron following Scottish National Party moves to hold a referendum on the issue.
Cameron is now preparing a plan to stop the destruction of the UK, The Daily star reports.
A Buckingham Palace source said both Cameron and the Queen were taking the SNP’s threat seriously enough to plot against it.
The Queen raised her concerns with Cameron after the SNP’s surprise victory in the Scottish Parliament Elections earlier this month.
“She would, of course, accept the will of the people in Scotland on this issue, but the Union is obviously important to her,” the Palace source said.
The Queen owns a huge amount of land in Scotland, including her favourite estate at Balmoral.
SNP leader Alex Salmond has already said Scotland would keep the Queen as its head of state if independence followed a referendum.
