Sources at the royal house say that Queen Elizabeth II, who has been at Windsor Castle since mid-April, is expected to remain isolated indefinitely.
According to the British press, quoted by the online newspaper Observer, Queen Elizabeth II, who has been at Windsor Castle for almost two months, is expected to remain in isolation indefinitely.
The monarch, who turned 94 in April, is only accompanied by her husband, Prince Philip, and some castle officials, and is currently not receiving visitors.
According to Andrew Morton, a royal biographer, there is still the possibility that the sovereign will not be seen in public again until the discovery of a vaccine or treatment for covid-19, which can take months or even years.
Since being in Windsor, the Queen has addressed the nation twice: the first was in early April, with a message of hope for all Britons due to the covid-19 pandemic, and the second last week, by the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II.
The son and first heir in the line of succession, Prince Carlos, is on the Balmoral royal estate, where he was isolated for weeks because he contracted the virus, while his grandson and second in the line of succession, Prince William, is in Norfolk region with their family.
