Queen Elizabeth II In The Face Of Coronavirus: Queen Ready To Join Prince Philip In Case Of Emergency

UNITED FOR BETTER OR WORSE

She was said to be a refugee in Windsor as the coronavirus epidemic spread to Britain. Her entourage claims that Elizabeth II, soon to be 94 years old, will continue to serve as an officer in Buckingham. Should the threat come closer, however, the Queen would join her husband Philip, 98, on another royal estate. A salutary measure, a last act of love as well…

The Megxit is no longer the crisis that occupies his thoughts. Pragmatic, though affected by the heated quarrel between her grandsons William and Harry, Elizabeth II has proceeded effectively: Meghan and Harry have been invited to join her and Archie at Balmoral this summer, close the ban.

The spread of the coronavirus in Great Britain worries the sovereign much more: respecting the sanitary precautions since the beginning of March, the queen follows the evolution of the pandemic with vigilance.

Despite a lighter schedule over the next few weeks and rumours of exfiltration to Winsor, Her Majesty, soon to be 94 years old, has made plans to return to Buckingham, London, unless the government orders otherwise.

However, in the event of a health emergency, she has planned to find Prince Philip, her husband of more than 70 years, as confirmed by the Daily Mail.

While Kate Middleton seems to have found refuge in Norfolk and the family manor at Anmer Hall, with her children George, Charlotte and Louis, the Duke of Edinburgh, who will celebrate his 99th birthday in June, remains confined to a farm on the grounds of Sandringham Castle.

It is there that His Majesty’s husband is resting after a few days’ hospitalization in December. His health before the spread of the coronavirus was already a cause for concern, and while she has come to terms with their estrangement since the Prince’s retirement in 2017, Elizabeth II will nevertheless join him if the epidemic threatens her.

Already three suspicious cases on Windsor land

The Daily Mail was told by Her Majesty’s advisers that she wanted to “remain calm and active” but the possible reunion of the royal couple, which was publicised by the Sun, was not denied.

These would be part of the COBRA plan, established with the government to deal with exceptional crises. As the Daily Mail notes, the Windsor estate, which is partly open to the public, no longer appears to be a safe enough place, with three individuals showing symptoms similar to those infected with the coronavirus.

Moreover, while the Queen has always put the Crown first, she has made no secret of her concern for Philip, her rock, for months now. God save the royal couple…
