Queen Abdication: Queen Elizabeth II Reveals Shocking Plan Amid COVID-19 Crisis

Queen Abdication: Queen Elizabeth II Reveals Shocking Plan Amid COVID-19 Crisis”

Her enforced absence is expected to be the longest time she's been kept away from her royal duties in her 68-year reign.

Her Majesty, along with husband Prince Philip, has been in self-isolation at Windsor Castle since March 19.

The Buckingham Palace has not yet released an official statement about the return of Her Majesty.

Typically, at this time of year there would be a number of royal engagements on the calendar, including Trooping the Colour, the Order of the Garter Service, and the Queen's beloved summer garden parties. These include Buckingham Palace, which usually welcomes visitors during summers when the Queen is at Balmoral.

Nevertheless, the royal source confirmed it's ultimately for the Queen's own wellbeing to forgo being a public presence. She has always loved getting out and meeting people but she can't take the risk.

Last year, tourism earned the royals more than £70million from ticket and souvenir sales. "They have dinner together in the evenings and I imagine the Queen is of the generation where she dresses for dinner. It would be far too risky for the queen to start meeting people on a regular basis".

But as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic - and the chance of life only truly returning to normal once a vaccine against the virus is widely available - all remaining investitures this year have been cancelled, and events next year and in 2022 have been placed under review.

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. "It's a delicate line but I think we will see her doing private audiences again and more of the work we are used to seeing her do in public at some point in the future. The virus has had a cataclysmic effect", one royal aide said.

The Duchess of Cornwall was already deemed imperfect to fit into the royals for not having the seamless image Diana had, and tensions heightened for her when she became the "other woman" in Charles and Diana's marriage. The principle of secrecy for all royal wills was established as recently as 2002 in a secret court hearing.

"The touchy-feely way of doing things created by Princess Diana has been stopped in its tracks", he said. However, Queen Elizabeth II is said to have ironed out her plans for post-lockdown life, making it clear that she will come back as soon as it is safe for her to do so.

This equates to an eye watering inheritance sum to the will's royal beneficiaries - with some speculating it amounts to well over $2 billion - but the general public will likely never know its true final value. "The charities that they support, the issue they're most passionate about".
