Queen Elizabeth is to self-isolate at Windsor Castle

Buckingham Palace announced that the 93-year-old head of state will decamp to the Berkshire royal residence on Thursday - a week earlier than she usually does for Easter Court.

The monarch will be based at her favourite home with a reduced household and will be following appropriate advice, a source said.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has called on all people in the UK, particularly the over 70s, to avoid all non-essential contact and travel as part of unprecedented peacetime measures aimed at trying to control the spread of Covid-19. Daily Mail reported.

Elizabeth II, the nation's longest reigning monarch, is due to celebrate her 94th birthday next month, and the risk of more severe symptoms from the coronavirus is greater for the elderly and those with pre-existing health conditions.

With coronavirus at large in the United Kingdom, and worldwide, Queen Elizabeth has been forced to make some changes to her schedule. For instance, the monarch's previously scheduled visits to Cheshire and Camden will no longer be taking place. Meanwhile, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla have canceled their royal tour of Bosnia, Herzegovina, Cyprus, and Jordan, as it is currently unadvisable to travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
