Late Last Night

If I were still on Twitter you could've already seen these, instead they were shared exclusively (at the time) with Mrs. McG:

Media in Europe and Australia are speculating that an unusual sudden meeting called at Buckingham Palace means Prince Philip has passed away. He's 95.
11:55 p.m. Wednesday, May 3

By morning, of course, it became known that rumors of the Duke of Edinburgh's death had been greatly exaggerated. He's merely retiring from public duties. Still, before the full story had yet been released there was this:

Buckingham Palace denies. In other news, a building spoke.
1:33 a.m. Thursday, May 4
So he's still alive and kicking, but Fleet Street won't get to kick him around anymore.
