Emergency proposals to rescue the royal family during the Cold War have been "repurposed" in recent weeks, as the risk continues to rise of the United Kingdom crashing out of the European Union without a deal before next month's deadline.

The Mail on Sunday also said it had learnt of plans to move the royal family, including the Queen, to safe locations away from London.

Conservative MP and Brexit supporter Jacob Rees-Mogg said he believed the plans showed unnecessary panic by officials over a no-deal Brexit.

But The Sunday Times said an ex-police officer formerly in charge of royal protection, Dai Davies, expected Queen Elizabeth would be moved out of London if there was unrest.
