Queen Elizabeth Will Reportedly Stay Out of Public Life "Indefinitely"
For the past two months, Queen Elizabeth has been isolating at Windsor Castle to protect herself from the coronavirus. As the spread continues to grow across Europe, however, it appears she and Prince Philip may remain there for a very long time.
According to The Times, the Queen "will remain at Windsor Castle indefinitely," adding that, "the queen is to withdraw from public life for months in what is expected to be the longest absence from official duties in her 68-year reign."
Many royal events, such as the Trooping of the Colour, have already been postponed. She also canceled her birthday celebration in April. The Times added that it's unclear whether any of the planned fall events will still take place. Despite not being able to attend official events, she has continued to address the public through videos on television and social media.
Like the queen, the rest of the royal family is isolating in their various homes around the world. While Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been volunteering to feed the homeless as they settle into their Los Angeles home, Prince William and Kate Middleton are working on a new project to bring together the British people.
