Queen ‘abandons Buckingham Palace’ over coronavirus fears

The Queen has reportedly left Buckingham Palace following Cobra crisis talks, it has been claimed.

According to The Sun, the Queen was taken to Windsor Castle as the UK Government masterminds its response to the ongoing crisis.

It is understood Her Maj, 93, and Prince Philip, 98, are set to be moved to Sandringham if the outbreak gets worse.

The development comes after it was announced the number of coronavirus cases reached 1,140 and that 21 people had died.

A royal source told the publication: “She is in good health but it was thought best to move her. A lot of her staff are panicky over coronavirus.

“The Palace hosts a constant stream of visitors including politicians and dignitaries from around the world.”

But a Palace source said she is expected to be at Buckingham Palace next week.
