Queen Elizabeth II is moving to Windsor Castle for Easter, week earlier than usual.
The monarch, 93, usually takes up an official residence at the castle for a month over the Easter holidays. It seems like she will stay there longer this year as the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread around the UK.
Traditionally, Queen Elizabeth hosts occasional ‘dine and sleep’ events for the guests, which include politicians and public figures. However, changes must be made this year.
Also, Prime Minister Boris Johnson will be received at Buckingham Palace this week, and also the Commanding Officer of the HMS Queen Elizabeth and the Bishop of Hereford. However, public events with a massive number of people will now be canceled or postponed.
This also includes annual Maundy Service at St George’s Chapel on April 9, and the three Garden Parties held by the Queen in May. The two additional Garden Parties for the Not Forgotten Association and the National Trust will also be cancelled.
