FBI records reveal ‘ever-present’ threats to Queen Elizabeth II by the IRA

Newly released FBI files show the bureau was concerned about “ever-present” threats to Queen Elizabeth II by the Irish Republican Army (IRA) during visits to the US.

A memo warning agents in Boston and New York to remain “alert for any threats” ahead of a 1989 visit to the east coast was among 102 pages of records released about the late Queen.
