A Sneak Peek at Queen Elizabeth’s Unique Quarantine Schedule
With the emergence of the Coronavirus, everyone’s life came to a standstill. From celebrities to ordinary people, monarchs to presidents, each of us was confined to our homes. Naturally, the Royal family of the United Kingdom wasn’t left behind either. Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth performed their royal duties from their home with the help of video conferencing.
Speaking of the Queen in COVID-19 times, in the first week of February 2021, she completed a record-breaking 69 years on the throne. Even though she’s 94 years old, the Queen has been standing like a rock even during the pandemic, and this has made people quite curious about her daily routine. What does she do to maintain herself? Let’s find out.
A quick look at Queen’s journey to the throne
Queen Elizabeth II is the first daughter of the Duke and Duchess of York. Her father, King George VI, took over the throne after his brother King Edward VIII abdicated the throne in 1936.
Queen Elizabeth and her little sister, Princess Margaret, were homeschooled by their mother and governess, Marian Crawford. On June 2, 1953, she was crowned as the Queen of the UK, following her father’s untimely death.
How did the Queen spend her time during quarantine?
Like everyone else, Queen Elizabeth spent most of the lockdown period at her home, the Windsor Castle, alongside her husband, Prince Philip. A royal family insider was quoted as joking that it would be lovely if the Queen had this much free time during her twilight years! The royal couple was among the first people to get vaccinated in the United Kingdom, and according to insiders, both are physically and mentally healthy.
The same source further revealed that the Queen maintains a regular schedule, and the only thing that has changed is that she wakes up a little late nowadays. Her mornings start with BBC’s Today news program, which she hears over her Roberts Radio. Apart from this, she goes to Chapel every week and analyzes documents daily. The Queen pays special attention to any news about the pandemic and participates in numerous video calls for charity events.
We also found out that the Queen’s favorite hobby is to spend some quality time with her pets. She also loves to ride Fell ponies from her stable and stays in touch with her beloved friend Monty Roberts. FYI, Monty Roberts is a close friend and advisor to the Queen.
Though it might sound mundane to some, we think that at the age bracket she’s in, the Queen is quite active and socially involved. What are your thoughts?
Upcoming events for the Queen
Queen Elizabeth will celebrate her 95th birthday on April 21, 2021. In June 2022, she will celebrate 70 years on the throne, and this occasion would be followed by a four-day holiday in the UK.
