England's reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth, is said to embody history itself as she remains one of the longest-reigning rulers, thanks to her level-headedness and impeccable judgment.  


Queen Elizabeth has spent a record-breaking 68 years on the throne. She has survived some of history's most turbulent times, and now, according to People, she depends on her experience from the rough times amid the ongoing viral pandemic ravaging all parts of the world.

In Queen Elizabeth's recent address to the public members in the U.K. and beyond, the graceful monarch cautiously captured the mood of the world, sources close to her told People.

In multiple video addresses from Windsor Castle, where she has been isolating with her husband, Prince Philip, the Queen reminisced about her wartime life with her sister, Princess Margaret.  

The Queen revealed that as young princesses, she and her sister often spoke from Windsor to kids who had been escorted from their houses and sent away to ensure their safety.

She said, "Today, once again, many will feel a painful sense of separation from their loved ones. But now, as then, we know, deep down, that it is the right thing to do."


Since her return to Windsor, there have been reports that the Queen will remain there, however, according to The Telegraph, the 93-year-old monarch will carry on with everyday life and is expected to return to Buckingham palace next week. 

Though the confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus in the U.K has risen above 200,000, the Queen is determined to forge on — she continues her royal duties, going as far as making trips overseas. 

Charles tested positive for the virus at the end of March.


According to a senior royal source, the Queen is allegedly determined to lead by example by "keeping calm and carrying on" until there is "compelling advice to the contrary."

The source also reveals that if the Queen or other senior members of the royal family were to change their plans abruptly, it would create panic among the people looking to them for encouragement.


Senior members of the British Royal Family, including the Queen, and Prince Philip, are all at high risk from the coronavirus due to their old age.

Among the royals, Prince Charles is the first member to test positive for the COVID-19. Prince William opened up about it on "BBC Breakfast" in a joint video chat interview with his wife, Kate Middleton.

William admitted that he had initially been concerned because of Charles's age. On the other hand, he says he felt reassured his dad would pull through because he had survived a lot of chest infections over the years.

Charles tested positive for the virus at the end of March and had to self-isolate away from his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
