Queen Elizabeth II has today praised ‘selfless’ London Bridge heroes ‘who put their own lives at risk’ to wrestle terrorist Usman Khan to the ground and managed to pull a lethal weapon – knife from him.
QUEEN ELIZABETH II’s decision to remove Prince Andrew from royal duties this week may have come alongside fears that the fallout would overshadow the general election – and Her Majesty faced a similar crisis in 1992 when the Duke of York and Sarah Ferguson knocked general election coverage off the front pages.
- The Queen said she was ‘saddened’ by the ‘terrible violence’ yesterday
- She praised the heroes who tackled Khan while he wore a fake suicide vest
- The brutal knife rampage saw two killed and three others injured
