HRH is practicing Social Distancing at Windsor castle with Prince Philip. Queen Elizabeth II usually celebrates her birthday in June as well because the weather is not reliable in April, but those plans have been canceled.
Prince William and Kate Middleton, who posted a birthday tribute to the Queen on their KensingtonRoyal Instagram, are expected to call into Zoom from Anmer Hall, where they’ve been isolating with their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. Last week, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge said that they’ve been using Zoom to keep in touch with their family members, including Prince Charles (who is recovering from COVID-19 at Birkhall) and Camilla Parker-Bowles as well as the Middletons.
