Her Majesty the Queen has, after weeks of speculation made her thoughts on Scottish independence known publicly for the first time, after she told Scottish Independence well wishers to think “very carefully about the future” after attending a Sunday church service.

In a move that may show the Queen had already pre-briefed her Royal protection officers that she was going to say something she wanted widely reported, a police sergeant invited the members of the press who were kept at the usual respectful distance of 200 yards to approach unusually near. A member of the public reported she said “you have an important vote on Thursday. I hope everybody thinks very carefully about the referendum this week".
