Funeral plan for King Charles III underway, security expert says
Former Royal Protection Officer Simon Morgan said plans for Operation Menai Bridge – the personal funeral plan of the now King – will begin “tomorrow”.
“Unfortunately as of tomorrow morning planning for Operation Menai Bridge will start in earnest,” he told Today.
“Even the King said in his acceptance that he will take this role for as long as life allows him to.
“He is 73 years of age, it’s got to be in the back of your mind, and from the police, we’ve got to start planning again for the future.”
Reflecting on Operation London Bridge, Morgan said everything “went to plan”.
“At this stage, we haven’t seen anything go wrong from a planners perspective,” he said.
“They will be looking at that tomorrow to see if anything did go wrong in the back scenes.”
