The team behind the contingency plan for Queen Elizabeth II's death has been meeting two three times every year since the 1960s, finalizing the plan. First, an announcement is made regarding the death when it happens. The palace will inform the Press Association who will break the news. If she dies overnight, the announcement will be withheld until the following morning. At that same moment, a footman "in mourning clothes" will emerge from Buckingham Palace to pin a notice onto the gates of the death.

A rare and terminal disease

The Woonona girl was one of only seven known cases of the rare degenerative brain illness in Australia and her family has spent the past eight years raising money for medical research to help find a cure.

VWM disease is a terminal brain disease that mostly affects children, and causes seizures and the loss of motor skills.

The Saxby family raised millions of dollars, which allowed Australia's first dedicated medical research into the disease to be conducted out of Wollongong.

They have vowed to continue trying to find a cure.
