A gunshot in the night
Death by firearm for the 'private secretary' echoes today
Location: Buckingham Palace, SW1Y
Description: Edward VII (Albert Edward; 9 November 1841 to 6 May 1910) was King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland until his death on 6 May 1910.
And it was during his reign that he resided at Buckingham Palace where some weird and ghostly goings-on started to occur.
Not least the supposed suicide of his then 'private secretary' by firearm. An act of unrest that continues to this day...this gunshot apparently still echoes around the palace at certain ghostly times.
