The Queen is said to be privately horrified at the prospect of Scotland voting for independence from the UK.

It is believed the referendum – which could make the monarch the last Queen of Scotland – dominated her discussions with Prime Minister David Cameron on his annual visit to Balmoral at the weekend.

The growing panic over the break-up of the UK was fuelled by a YouGov poll which put the nationalist Yes campaign ahead by 51% to 49%.

Buckingham Palace aides said the Queen had asked for daily updates on the state of the campaigns.

A source said yesterday: “The Queen is a unionist, there is now a great deal of concern.

“If there is a Yes vote that puts us into uncharted territory constitutionally . Nothing is certain and her being Queen of Scotland is not a given.”

YouGov found the nationalists had clawed back a 22-point lead held by the Better Together campaign at the start of August.

Nationalist leader Alex Salmond’s private polling reportedly put his campaign ahead 54% to 46%.

In London, George Osborne tried to win over voters flirting with ­independence by ­promising to publish within days a cross-party plan to offer more powers to Edinburgh if Scotland stays in the UK.

This would including handing more tax-raising powers and control over welfare to the Scottish Parliament.
