If such measures are implemented, then members of the royal family will have to comply with the rules and be isolated in their homes.
Fear and anxiety now prevails in the palace. Prince Charles and Camila postponed their trip to Cyprus.
Outbreaks of coronavirus are expected to increase in the UK and, according to Express, the government will take steps to ensure the protection of older people.
Such measures are intended to restrict the residence of persons over 70 for up to 4 months.
Queen Elizabeth is 94 years old this year and Prince Philip’s husband is 98 years old. Accordingly, Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, may also be among the members of the royal family who have been asked to be isolated.
Other members who are over 70 are the Duke and Duchess of Kent, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and the Queen’s cousin, Princess Alexandra.
At a recent ceremony at Buckingham Palace earlier this month, the queen wore gloves for the first time in a decade, at least. However, the palace declined to confirm, according to Express, that the move was due to a pandemic explosion, telling The Times: “It is not unusual for the Queen to wear gloves in public.”
But despite their denials, it is known that Queen Elizabeth canceled a series of scheduled appearances in Camden and Cheshire this week.
A statement from Buckingham Palace said: “For practical reasons as a precautionary measure under the present circumstances, changes are being made to the Queen’s calendar commitments in the coming weeks.”
Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, are also postponing their tour, which was scheduled to start on March 17, following government recommendations.
In fact, the couple was expected to visit Cyprus shortly before leaving for Jordan.
“Due to the outbreak of the pandemic, the British government has asked the couple to postpone their tour of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cyprus and Jordan.”
In addition to the temporary cancellations of their trips, members of the royal family have taken other measures to protect against coronavirus. In their recent presence at Westminster Abbey for Commonwealth Day, they shook hands with other attendees.
