Prime Minister Boris Johnson is to tell all over 70s, which includes The Queen, the Prince of Wales & the Duchess of Cornwall, to self isolate in their homes for a period of upto four months.

ITV’s Political Editor Robert Peston says that the government is likely to announce the drastic measures at some point within the next couple of weeks.

Mr Peston says the “wartime-style” mobilisation will aim to protect the most vulnerable from Coronavirus.

COVID-19 particularly discriminates against the elderly and those with respiratory problems. With the virus expected to spread rapidly, plans are being made ready so the most vulnerable are protected.

This would see senior members of The Royal Family being forced to self-isolate, including The Queen who turns 94-years-old next month.

The elderly heir to the throne, 71-year-old Prince Charles, may also have to stay in isolation in Clarence House alongside the 72-year-old Duchess of Cornwall.

If such measures are implemented, the only working members of The Royal Family eligible to carry on without isolating will be the Earl & Countess of Wessex and the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge.

Princess Anne is also in the clear, but not for long as she turns 70-years-old in a few months time.

The Duke & Duchess of Sussex & the Duke of York have recently stepped back from official duties.
