The Queen shares lovely update while she self-isolates at Windsor with Prince Philip

How sweet!

Queen Elizabeth II

The Queen has shared a lovely update while she self-isolates at Windsor with Prince Philip.

It's been a difficult few weeks for Brits and people all over the world due to the coronavirus outbreak - including the Queen, who had to self-isolate and cancel a numbers of events.

However, amid the negativity, there's been some good news - and it seems like Her Majesty wanted to join in and give her followers a happy update on social media.

Sharing a picture of her carriage horses running free - and looking very happy - it was revealed the animals are now taking a break from official duties, just like everyone else.

Alongside the beautiful pictures, the post read, 'The Queen’s carriage horses are turned out at Hampton Court Palace, where they will remain whilst they are not required for official duties.

'There are two types of carriage horse - Cleveland Bays & Windsor Greys. All the horses are named by The Queen.

While the horses are at Hampton Court Palace, in Richmond, the Queen is self-isolating with her husband, Prince Philip, at Windsor Castle.

In order to protect Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh, there's a very small number of people supporting them during this time (opens in new tab), and not even family is allowed to visit them.

Just a few weeks ago, (opens in new tab)Buckingham Palace confirmed the Queen's change of address in an official statement.

'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 read.

‘Her Majesty will move to Windsor Castle for the Easter period on Thursday 19th March, one week earlier than planned. It is likely The Queen will stay there beyond the Easter period.

‘In consultation with the Medical Household and Government, a number of public events with large numbers of people due to have been attended by The Queen, and other Members of the Royal Family, in the coming months will be cancelled or postponed.

‘The annual Maundy Service at St George’s Chapel on 9th April will not go ahead. Three Garden Parties hosted by The Queen, due to be held at Buckingham Palace in May, will now not take place.'
