Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla have left London for Balmoral: report


The Queen and Prince Philip were taken to Windsor Castle last week as the coronavirus pandemic continued to escalate worldwide, and it's since been confirmed Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla have also left London and are spending their time in Scotland.

The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall are at the Royal Family's Balmoral estate and will remain there for the foreseeable future, according to Town & Country. On March 22,Harper's Bazaar confirmed the couple had left England.

The couple, who are both in their 70s, need to take care of themselves, as their age group is among those at risk for serious complications from COVID-19. Last week, Charles was said to be hard at work at home at Clarence House, so he's likely still doing the same thing at Balmoral.

The coronavirus pandemic means the couple have had to postpone their tour of Jordan and Cyprus, which was to have taken place this month, along with Charles's visit to Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The Queen has also cancelled several events on her calendar due to the pandemic, including the Maundy Thursday service at St. George's Chapel on April 9, along with the garden parties she usually hosts at Buckingham Palace. Japanese Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako's state visit to the United Kingdom has also been postponed.

It was recently revealed the Queen intends to use video chat to keep in contact with her family, just like many of us! We're sure Charles and Camilla will be pleased to speak with Her Majesty and Philip and see their faces despite the distance between them.
