Queen Elizabeth II, who isolated during the Coronavirus pandemic at Windsor Castle in southeast England, is planning to travel to her palace in Scotland for her annual summer vacation, according to a British media report.
The 94-year-old monarch and husband, 99-year-old Prince Philip, will travel to Balmoral Castle next month. Many members of the royal family attend a socially distant traditional summer gathering on the Queen's 50,000-acre estate, Aberdeenshire.
"To minimize the risk, the queen will not accommodate or entertain her guests at the castle. They will spend the night on the property and walk, shoot, fish, ride, picnic and grill. There will be no family meals inside "& # 39; The Sunday Times & # 39; reported.
The queen is said to be determined to make it to Balmoral in early August, a few weeks later than usual, provided this is considered safe and there are no changes in government travel regulations as the country is no longer phased out.
According to the report, around the Queen and Prince Philip, a so-called "balmoral bubble" is created by household staff, which is made up in part of some members of the 22-member "Windsor bubble" who were and will be by their side throughout the closure move to Scotland with her.
New in the "Balmoral bubble" are additional cooks, housemaids and support staff who are already based on the Scottish estate and who are to undergo COVID-19 detection tests.
"Balmoral is a private time and we would not comment on plans or agreements," said Buckingham Palace.
The Queen, who left Buckingham Palace in London on March 19 at the height of the pandemic and has not returned since then, made her first personal royal engagement since the lockout last Friday when she took 100-year-old captain Tom Moore to the Knight struck At an outdoor ceremony at Windsor Castle, he raised nearly £ 33 million for National Health Service (NHS) charities by running rounds in his bedfordshire garden.
