Queen Elizabeth II could be quarantined at Sandringham in Norfolk, UK. She recently left Buckingham Palace to go to Windsor Castle on Thursday. Her Majesty is in “good health but it was thought best to move her” according to royal sources.
The Palace hosts many visitors including politicians and dignitaries. Recent advice from Downing Street states that over 70’s should self-isolate in reaction to the coronavirus.
The Queen is 93 years old and will turn 94 on April 21st of this year. Her husband, Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh is 98 and will turn 99 on June 10th of this year.
Sandringham has apparently been selected by advisers for the Queen to stay due to the number of staff. At Buckingham Palace, the staff members are up to 500 whereas Windsor would be 100 with less in Norfolk. Allegedly, her staff is very concerned about coronavirus, especially for the Queen.
On Friday the Queen postponed engagements in response to COVID-19. The monarch’s diary was rearranged according to the Palace “as a sensible precaution and for practical reasons in the current circumstances”.
