Many people over the age of 70 have been self-isolating for over three months now, and the Queen – aside from living with 22 staff – has been no different.
The 94-year-old has been isolating at Windsor Castle with Prince Philip, 99, and her staff in what colleagues have dubbed the ‘HMS Bubble’. The staff have agreed to live away from their own families for the duration of lockdown, meaning they can serve the royals without PPE or needing to follow social-distancing guidelines.
Here, we reveal what Her Majesty has been getting up to…
BUSINESS AS USUAL
The Queen is a very hard worker, and she hasn’t let the lockdown stop her. She’s been busy keeping up with the news, reading newspapers and watching bulletins on TV. She’s also been holding her weekly audiences with the Prime Minister over the phone and has mastered FaceTime and Zoom in order to conduct business as well as keep in touch with her family.
She has been missing being amongst the public, and so is already in the early stages of planning the celebrations for her Platinum Jubilee in 2022, marking 70 years on the British throne.
