It is now clear that Empress Crystobel was assassinated on Sunday the 7th of July in the Britanian Capital. She was on tour of the country by invitation of its democratic government, nullifying her exile, as a sign of reconciliation 17 years after the murderous 1996 Revolution caused the death of her husband and many other innocents. The Empress accepted the invitation in good faith and also as a token of her forgiveness toward the now democratic people of Britania. She toured the country under limited media exposure and very high security firstly visiting her husband, the former Emperor Christian's Mausoleum followed by visits to relevant historic and rural sites. The climax of the tour was to lay a wreath of reconciliation at the newly erected monument in memory of the monarchy as a valued part of Britanian history. This was to be followed by a gala dinner in honour of the Empress' visit. The strict security measures obviously failed and the entire tour has now been branded an utter disaster.
International governments have unanimously spoken against the atrocity and have extended heartfelt condolences to the Imperial Family. Monarchies like the Principality of Swann and the Grand Duchy of Hanoveria have expressed their horror and utterly condemn the event as an inhuman atrocity. The Royal Families of Swann and Hanoveria are close relatives of the Empress and have not spoken to the media in a personal capacity as yet. No word has come form the Empress' son, the Crown Prince Imperial either and the media is keeping a respectful distance.
This photo has been leaked onto the Internet today showing the wounded Empress minutes before she passed in the Ambulance. In the photo we also see the reporter Kitty Spice who tried to protect the Empress with her own body putting herself in harms way. Reports are confirmed that the Empress was conscious immediately after the shooting but died en route to the hospital.
Our thoughts are with the family at this time.
