Like much of the rest of the world, the royal family are in social isolation in an attempt to stop the spread of coronavirus. So, what does that mean, exactly? According to The Daily Mail, the Queen in in “virtual” self-isolation with a “skeleton staff of just eight” and not even close family members can see her at this time.
“Obviously, the fewer people are in contact with each other, the better,” a source says. “No chances can be taken with the Queen’s safety in view of her and the Duke’s ages. But it’s also for the benefit of everyone who works at the Castle. Every firm has been told to send as many of their staff home as possible, and the Royal Family is no different…. The Queen is being looked after by her closest servants, while a couple of grooms and stable lads are looking after the horses. Like everywhere else, normal life is being put on hold.”
The Queen is mostly being looked after by two of her favorite staffers who are “with her all the time,” as well as a housemaid, a chef, and a footman.
Meanwhile, Prince Charles and Camilla are in their Highland estate, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have moved out of London to Anmer Hall. They are reportedly not seeing their grandparents, Carole and Michael Middleton, at this time. Harry and Meghan are of course in Canada with their son Archie, and apparently they’re very missed by the family, with one source saying “It’s a real shame that they aren’t here.”
