But if it's sudden, unexpected, or even in public — as was the case with Princess Diana's death in — then the news will get out immediately, in an unplanned, uncontrolled fashion.

The London Stock Exchange will likely close if the announcement happens during working hours, and other businesses may too.
The protocols government bodies will follow will emanate from the Department of Culture, Media and Sport though they may also originate from the Palace. But the immediate government response beyond official statements of condolences will be hard to predict, the former palace employee we spoke to said.
