The coronavirus has turned their plans upside down: this summer, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip are no longer making public appearances due to the risks associated with the global pandemic. But out of the question for the royal couple to derogate from the rule of the traditional stay in their residence of Balmoral, in the Scottish region of Aberdeenshire. Her favorite vacation spot! And the Queen and her husband have left the scene to settle in their other, English residence at Sandringham. “The Queen has left Balmoral to settle in her Sandringham residence for the next few weeks with her husband the Duke of Edinburgh,” reports Daily Mail reporter Rebecca English, who follows the British royal family.

Another upheaval for the queen: Elizabeth II should see her title of queen of Barbados withdrawn in November 2021, assures Rebecca English. “This is a subject which concerns the Government and the people of Barbados,” Buckingam Palace reportedly announced. Due to the coronavirus pandemic which continues to rage, there is no question of making the 94-year-old sovereign take the slightest risk, as well as her husband, who is for his part aged 99. So, as the Express reports, royalty expert Roya Nikkhah explained that social distancing measures will prevent visitors from setting up a camp at Balmoral and that alternative arrangements will need to be made to ensure the safety of the Queen and of the prince.
What to breathe after an intense year, with the Megxit and the Covid-19 pandemic which made the headlines!
