The Royal Family has been steadily adopting precautionary measures to prevent members from contracting the deadly coronavirus, with the Queen set to leave London for her annual Easter break in Windsor a week earlier. The Government has advised anyone over the age of 70 should limit their social interactions and stay home as much as possible, but one senior working royal is now expected to continue working throughout the pandemic. Speaking to ITV’s Lorraine, the Daily Mirror’s royal editor Russell Myers suggested Princess Anne will “continue with her duty” as she is yet to turn 70.
On Monday Anne attended The British Horse Society’s National Convention, at the Addington Equestrian Centre, Addington, Buckingham.
The following day, the Princess Royal took part in a Luncheon at the Honourable Society of Gray’s Inn.
Her continued active duty comes as Buckingham Palace confirmed the Queen would move up her move to Windsor by one week.
In a brief statement, a spokesperson for the monarch said: “Her Majesty will move to Windsor Castle for the Easter period on Thursday 19 March, one week earlier than planned.
“It is likely the Queen will stay there beyond the Easter period.”
