"The Queen speaks with service personnel from @BritishArmy, @RoyalNavy and @RoyalAirForceuk via video call, to hear about the work of the British Armed Forces at home and overseas, during the current pandemic. As Head of the Armed Forces, Her Majesty is regularly updated on operations around the world," the caption of the post read.
The longest-reigning monarch looked stunning with her patterned dark blue dress topped wiith a matchy pearl necklace, earrings and a brooch.
The Head of the Armed Forces, General Sir Nicholas Carter, gave Queen Elizabeth II some updates on how they are coping up with their current situation, especially since they have been away from their families for several months.
"Everybody's been extremely busy with the pandemic and doing a wonderful job," Able Rate Sophie Levy, who is deployed onboard the RFA Argus in the Caribbean, also shared to the Queen.
Meanwhile, Lance Corporal Shanwayne Stephens, who is the Queen's Colour Squadron and a member of the Jamaican bobsleigh team, revealed his bizarre lockdown exercise that made Her Majesty chuckle during the video conference.
"I've been pushing a car up and down the street," he told the Queen, to which Her Majesty responded with a chuckle before saying: "Well, I suppose that's one way to train."
Royal Watchers Loved The Queen's Reaction
With almost 273,000 views, royal watchers flocked the comments section and gushed over the Queen's lovely gesture.
"Love love Queen Elizabeth. She is so adorable. Loved her reactions to this video chat. You can tell it meant the world to all our military recipients in this chat," one fan wrote.
Another user also praised Queen Elizabeth II for her wonderful interview: "What a lovely cheerful interview with her Majesty."
Others also acknowledged how the royal family has been stepping up and reaching out to people amid the devastating crisis.
"The royal family have really stepped up to the COVID crisis. Well done to all involved in making adjustments to the way the work is done," one fan responded.
With her age, Queen Elizabeth II is considered as high-risk of contracting COVID-19. With that said, she and Prince Philip are both being looked after by 22 royal staff, who are currently in a so-called "HMS Bubble" and isolated in Windsor Castle.
