The Queen has left Buckingham Palace for Windsor Castle as her Easter break is brought forward by a week due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Her Majesty, who turns 94-years-old next month, is likely to remain in Windsor for the few weeks, as COVID-19 spreads at a rapid rate.

The monarch left the palace with her beloved dorgis on her lap.

The Duke of Edinburgh has also arrived at Windsor Castle from Sandringham to spend time with Her Majesty.

Prince Philip arrived in Berkshire by helicopter on Thursday morning, having not seen his wife since early February.

It is understood that if the situation continues to worsen, both The Queen and Prince Philip will be quarantined at Sandringham House.

The death-toll in the UK from coronavirus has now reached over 100 with the elderly and those with respiratory problems being the most vulnerable.

Speaking of The Queen’s situation, a source told The Sun“She is in good health but it was thought best to move her. A lot of her staff are a bit panicky over coronavirus. 

“The Queen has met a lot of people there until recently. But she is weeks away from her 94th birthday and advisers believe it is best to get her out of harm’s way.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has advised people over 70s, which includes The Queen, the Prince of Wales & the Duchess of Cornwall, to self isolate in their homes for a period of three months.

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.
