Its that time of the year when the whole Royal family gathers at their Balmoral castle for the traditional “Summer break.” As the UK is severely hit with the Corona Virus breakdown, will the royal family still be able to enjoy their time together? Read.
It’s not a secret that Queen and Philip have been spending their summers at the hills of Balmoral for decades. Every year the Royal family reunites at their castle and spend some family time together. The Queen, 94, and the Duke of Edinburgh, 99, are currently in their Windsor castle and spending the lockdown days together.
However, we heard from sources that the Queen is planning for their summer break and will be traveling to the Balmoral castle located in Scotland’s soft hills in August. The duo will get joined by other members of the Royal family. But due to COVID-19 and its rules, there will be some changes.
As per sources, the family will join Queen in Aberdeenshire but will keep a distance in the pandemic account, which has made social distancing an essential. Although other family members will join them for the traditional summer get-together this time, they will not be able to come close to the monarch. Queen will also not be able to attend the guest. The guest will be accommodated in another place. The couple is, however, allowed to meet and greet the other members of the family outside. They will gather outside for outdoor activities like walks, fishing, horse riding, picnic, etc.
All the strict arrangements and restrictions are imposed by keeping the current situation in mind. As the Queen and Philip are in their 90’s, they are more prone to the virus infection and thus need more protection. All the traveling and accommodation plans are made keeping “safety” in mind. Few staff from the “Windsor bubble” will also accompany them and be a part of the “Balmoral bubble.” Windsor bubble is a group of 22 people who are looking after the Queen and Philip since the lockdown got imposed. The Windsor bubble members are either isolating from their families for three weeks or live with them on the Windsor Castle grounds to ensure the complete safety of the Royal couple.
