Coronavirus may prevent the Queen ever returning to public royal duties

Coronavirus may prevent the Queen ever returning to public royal duties”

The Queen may not be returning to public duties any time soon, as Covid-19 restrictions make public engagements unsafe for what could be years.

The 94-year-old Queen and 99-year-old Prince Philip have been at the castle since March because of the threat of coronavirus infection, which is far deadlier for elderly people.

Courtiers are reportedly gearing up to keep the monarch indoors until at least after the summer, although sources are cited as saying the Queen is reluctant to slow down or stop working.

While the Queen will not be seen returning to the Buckingham Palace anytime soon, she will continue to shoulder her royal duties per usual, such as talking to United Kingdom prime minister Boris Johnson.

The paper have reported that the break in official royal duties is nearly certain to be the longest absence of her 68-year reign, as grandson Prince William and Kate Middleton step up. But with royal events such as the Trooping of Colour in June being cancelled, there is no need for Queen Elizabeth to return.

Prince Philip has already retired from public duties.

"When I look at our country today and see what we are willing to do to protect and support one another, I say with pride that we are still a nation those courageous soldiers, sailors and airmen would recognise and admire", she added.

"If she gets the bug, it could be fatal and would put Prince Philip at risk".

She promised those separated from loved ones that "we will meet again", echoing Vera Lynn, and urged Britons: "Never give up - never despair".

"The Queen's address on Friday was inspirational because she served during the war and she lifted spirits because she has authority from her lifetime of experiences".

A spokeswoman for Buckingham Palace said: "The Queen continues to be busy and will follow appropriate advice on engagements".
