 The Queen is allegedly taking extra caution as regards her hygiene amid coronavirus fears.


Although the Queen has become known for occasionally wearing gloves, she has never been seen rocking a pair at an investiture ceremony.

People revealed that Queen Elizabeth II chose to don gloves during the investiture ceremony. As a result of her actions, many have shared the belief that she was taking extra care amid the coronavirus scare.

The speculations had started after the Royal Family shared a video of the Queen wearing gloves as she presented Harry Billinge, a D-Day war veteran who was rewarded for his charity work, with his Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE).

The clip, which has amassed about 41,000 likes, was shared on Twitter with the caption:

“The D-Day veteran raised £1 for every British soldier who died at Normandy to help fund a @normandymtrust memorial..."


As it turned out, the 93-year-old isn’t the only one who is being careful as a royal insider told People that Prince William and Kate Middleton are also taking the threat of the virus seriously.

In fact, the couple had some help from Public Health England and the Department of Health, and they are following the instructions given to them.


Asides from dealing with the coronavirus scare, the Royal Family has continued to show their support for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as the duo prepare to leave royalty behind.

With that in mind, the Queen and Harry met for a lunch date that lasted for four hours, per a Daily Mail report.


The duo, who allegedly enjoyed a lunch of poached salmon and salad, had met to “clear the air” and state whatever they needed to, without any interruptions.

The meeting appeared to end on a good note as insiders claim that the Queen had told her grandson that he would “always be welcomed back” if he ever wanted to get back into royalty.

Closer Weekly added that even though the monarch had worries about and missed Harry, the most important thing to her was to see him happy and settled in his life.
