Queen Elizabeth is self-isolating at Windsor Castle amid the coronavirus outbreak, but she is missing one beloved weekly tradition.
- The Queen is self-isolating with her husband, Prince Philip, after Prince Charles tested positive for the virus.
- Her Majesty is missing the weekly church service she'd usually attend while staying at Windsor.
- This follows royal news that the Queen shared a lovely update while self-isolating.
The Queen, who is the head of the Church of England, attends church every Sunday.
While at Windsor Castle, the Queen would usually attend the Royal Chapel of All Saints for its Sunday service.
But now that the UK is in lockdown, All Saints Chapel is closed for the foreseeable future.
A message on the church’s website states: 'Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 23rd March 2020, we regret that it is no longer possible to keep the church open.
'Therefore, with heavy heart, we are closing our doors with immediate effect.
'The only services permitted under the new government restrictions are funerals.
'We are considering ways in which we can continue to operate as a worshipping community so please continue to visit this site which will be updated regularly.'
Despite her son, Prince Charles, testing positive for COVID-19, the Queen is said to be in good health.
What has Queen Elizabeth said about COVID-19?
A palace spokesman confirmed: 'The Queen remains in good health.
'The Queen last saw The Prince of Wales briefly on the morning of 12 March and is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare.'
But while she will be missing her beloved weekly church service, there are some royal traditions the Queen is still undertaking.
Last Wednesday, she held her weekly audience with Prime Minister Boris Johnson on the phone.
The Royal Family tweeted the photo with the caption: 'The Queen held her weekly Audience with the Prime Minister today by telephone.
'Her Majesty - pictured this evening at Windsor Castle - has held a weekly Audience with her Prime Minister throughout her reign.'
