The statement, which has since gotten people's responses, also praised the efforts of scientists, medics, and emergency staff, who were doing their bit to help during the crisis. The 93-year-old Queen had added that:

"Many of us will need to find new ways of staying in touch with each other and making sure that loved ones are safe. I am certain we are up to that challenge."

The 93-year-old's post came soon after Boris Johnson's spokesman maintained that there was zero possibility of people getting prohibited from traveling in and out of London.

It has also remained unclear whether members of the family would join the Queen for the Easter Sunday service which has been their tradition for many years.

Boris' spokesman also made it clear that the nation's capital had not been put into lockdown, The Telegraph revealed.

In light of the happenings around, Prince Harry appeared in a video shared by his Invictus Games Twitter handle to address the postponement of the annual event to 2021.

The father-of-one stated that although the choice to postpone the games was difficult, he hoped that the extra year they had would give competitors time to get "even fitter than you already are."

Other notable events that have been either shifted or canceled include the royal garden parties at the Queen's London residence and the Japanese state visit.
