Few hours after the Queen addressed the coronavirus pandemic, Prince William and Kate took to Instagram to show their support. The Cambridge couple shared the Queen’s message which asserted the strong need to work together as a country.
The statement read: “As Philip and I arrive at Windsor today, we know that many individuals and families across the United Kingdom, and around the world, are entering a period of great concern and uncertainty. We are all being advised to change our normal routines and regular patterns of life for the greater good of the communities we live in and, in particular, to protect the most vulnerable within them.
“At times such as these, I am reminded that our nation’s history has been forged by people and communities coming together to work as one, concentrating our combined efforts with a focus on the common goal. We are enormously thankful for the expertise and commitment of our scientists, medical practitioners and emergency and public services; but now more than any time in our recent past, we all have a vitally important part to play as individuals – today and in the coming days, weeks and months.
“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. You can be assured that my family and I stand ready to play our part.” The post was captioned: “A message from Her Majesty The Queen @theroyalfamily.”
On Thursday morning, the Queen was seen leaving Buckingham Palace with her dog. She headed out to her country home, Windsor Castle, due to concern over coronavirus outbreak. Later it was confirmed that Prince Philip was taken there too, by helicopter.
