• Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip may reunite in Norfolk soon
  • Queen Elizabeth's upcoming royal engagements have been canceled
  • The Queen and other senior royals have been advised to stay at home amid the coronavirus outbreak 

Prince Philip may reunite with Queen Elizabeth in Norfolk after months of not seeing each other due to a heartbreaking reason.

According to Express, Her Majesty was forced to cancel a series of engagements amid the growing coronavirus fears. Prior to the outbreak, Her Majesty was scheduled to visit three places in Macclesfield and Cheshire.

The monarch is also scheduled to visit Camden, but the details of her trip haven’t been released. On March 19, the Queen is supposed to visit the Bentley Motors Factory in Crewe, as well as the Jodrell Bank Observatory and Square Kilometer Array Global Headquarters.

A statement was released by the royal family confirming that all upcoming engagements have been canceled or postponed until further notice. They said that this is their way of practicing sensible precautions to prevent the further spread of coronavirus.

“Changes are being made to the Queen‘s diary commitments in the coming weeks. In consultation with the Medical Household and Government, Her Majesty’s forthcoming visits to Cheshire and Camden will be rescheduled. Audiences will continue as usual. Other events will be reviewed on an ongoing basis in line with the appropriate advice,” the statement read.

Since the Queen no longer has a busy schedule ahead, it is possible for her to finally have the time to visit her husband in Norfolk in the coming days. In fact, the Queen may even stay with the Duke of Edinburgh in Sandringham for a much longer period of time.

After all, Health Secretary Matt Hancock has advised Britons aged 70 and above to stay at home for up to four months to protect themselves from the possible risk of contracting the coronavirus.

Jason Leitch, the national clinical director for the Scottish government, also tweeted precautionary measures for Britons.

“Some confusion today. 1) there is NO PLAN to ask over 70s to completely socially isolate as with the symptomatic 2) we are working on guidance for the over 70s to be asked to REDUCE social contact for their safety. So no bingo, no pubs…BUT family visits and neighbors etc,” he wrote.
