London - The British Royal Family are in mourning after the tragic death of Prince Richard at Buckingham Palace. Prince Richard died after falling asleep at the wheel.
A palace spokesman said "Her Majesty is, of course, deeply upset by the tragedy which occurred at around 7:15pm on Monday evening. Every member of the Royal household, including the staff, are in shock at this time. For such a young life to be taken in this manner is almost beyond belief."
According to an undisclosed source Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth, was the last person to see Prince Richard alive. She is said to have run her fingers through his hair just half an hour before the accident.
A police cordon is in place around Buckingham Palace as an investigation headed by Simon Fallow of the R.S.P.C.A continues. "To die after falling asleep at the wheel is extremely unusual for a one year old hamster" he said.
