'We wouldn't comment on individual members of staff. In line with the appropriate guidance and our own processes, we have taken the necessary actions to protect all employees and people involved,' a palace spokesperson said.
Some reports suggest that the royal family will do an announcement soon for the UK public to boost everyone's morale. Before Queen Elizabeth, herself issued a statement which read, '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.'
'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,' she added. The queen will soon turn 94 on April 21, 2020.
