Queen Elizabeth II (93), like many other people, uses the telephone in the corona crisis. The palace has now published two pictures on Instagram. On one you can see the monarch on a phone, on the other the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson (55), also with an earpiece. It says: "The Queen held her weekly audience with the Prime Minister by phone. Her Majesty – pictured at Windsor Castle this evening – held an audience with her Prime Minister weekly throughout her reign." The fact that these take place on the phone is a big exception.
Elizabeth II already turned her back on Buckingham Palace and London in mid-March and moved to Windsor Castle just outside the capital. The British tabloid "The Sun" later reported that a monarch employee had recently been tested positive for the corona virus.
Charles quarantined in Scotland
After the royal family announced on Wednesday that Prince Charles (71) had also been infected with the corona virus, there was also a statement about the Queen: She was "in good health," said Buckingham Palace, according to media reports. The Queen last saw her eldest son on March 12, and the monarch also followed all "advice on her well-being".
Prince Charles had been tested for coronavirus on Monday after showing "mild symptoms" over the weekend. Otherwise, the 71-year-old is in good health and has been working from home as usual in the past few days, a spokesman said. He has quarantined in his estate in Scotland. Where he was infected with the virus is not known.
