The coronavirus pandemic has caused major changes in everyone's life, even the royal family were not spared and had to make certain adjustments in their everyday lives.
Just recently, it was reported that Her Majesty the Queen holds her weekly meeting with the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, also known as the "Audience" from their respective homes and conducted over the phone rather than face-to-face sessions in Buckingham Palace.
This is under the government's strict protocol regarding stay-at-home order and forbidding residents to do non-essential trips.
Earlier this week, the Prime Minister has placed the whole country on a police-enforced lockdown with extreme new measures in the fight against the COVID-19 outbreak.

Queen Elizabeth II Might Celebrate Her Special Day Alone
On a more serious note, although the government imposed a three week lockdown across the U.K., it was reported that the stay-at-home order might be extended until May or June if the cases and fatalities will continue to increase.
Having said that, the longest-reigning monarch, who will turn 94 next month, might spend her birthday in her Windsor residence while observing self-isolation.
Before the Queen's transfer to Windsor, Buckingham Palace had announced cancelation of royal events in her diary "as a sensible precaution" amid the coronavirus outbreak.
"As a sensible precaution and for practical reasons in the current circumstances, a number of changes are being made to The Queen's diary," the statement said.
"Audiences due to take place this week at Buckingham Palace will go ahead as planned. These include receiving the Prime Minister, the Commanding Officer of HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH and the Bishop of Hereford. Future Audiences will be reviewed on an ongoing basis, in line with the appropriate advice."
Following this, the Duke of Edinburgh was also transferred from his Sandringham residence in Norfolk to be with the Queen.
