Queen Elizabeth To Hold Off On Public Duties For The Foreseeable Future

Recently, she gave two public addresses to the nation in a bid to boost Brits' morale amid the raging health crisis - on 5 April and on VE-Day, when she urged the nation to "never give up and despair".

The queen is isolating at Windsor Castle, and will reportedly stay there "indefinitely".

Despite having been in contact with Prince Charles, who has had coronavirus, Queen Elizabeth did not contract the condition.

A friend revealed that the Queen is "riding out every day" and "making the most of the time" in quarantine, explaining: 'One of the nicest things for the Queen is that she is getting to spend more time with her husband than she usually would.

A royal source told Sunday Times, "The Queen won't do anything which goes against the advice of people in her [age] category, and she's going to take all the appropriate advice". "It's a delicate line but I think we will see her doing private audiences again and more of the work we are used to seeing her do in public at some point in the future". She still has a weekly audience with the Prime Minister by phone and receives daily boxes of government papers.

Nevertheless, the virus is still able to spread from human to animals, so practicing proper hygiene should always be a priority. Don't kiss your pets and keep surfaces clean to cut the chances of picking up any virus an animal might shed, he said.

The decision for the Queen to step back follows her strong role in leading the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth through the global pandemic, telling Kiwis: "Kia kaha, kia māia, kia manawanui" - to be strong, be courageous, be steadfast, in the face of the threat.

The source added that she was 'very much fufilling her duties as head of state'.

The isolation marks what is believed to be Queen Elizabeth's longest absence from official duties in her 68 year reign.

Her shift to Windsor comes with a shutdown of Buckingham Palace, which will be closed to the public throughout the British summer.

While isolated, the Queen and Prince Philip are being served by a small household staff.
